Volleyball 2023-24

  • UPDATE FOR 2/21 & 22/2024 PRACTICE

    We have a total of 100 girls that have turned out to play some Falcon Volleyball!  That is so great.  But, it also brings some challenges, with our facilities.  For us to have more space and nets to evaluate before making teams, we have the opportunity to go practice at the high school, where we can utilize two larger gyms and 5 nets.  We have buses that will come to get the girls right after school and drop them off at the High School.  Pick up will take place at the high school in the main gym parking lot at 4:45 (we may run practice right up to 4:45, as it will take a little time to get to THS and get dressed).  Coach Anchors and Coach Borovek will be making an announcement tomorrow about the buses and will help them all get on.  

    I realize this may be an inconvenience, but it will help us so much to have more space for the last two days of team placements.
