Week of March 23

It is almost Spring Break for a majority of us! Phew…we emphasize almost because we still have one week of work to do in the classroom and on the court. Let’s demonstrate great discipline as we diligently work through the week’s responsibilities. 

Girls 

We had a very good weekend where we played in two extremely competitive three set matches and fell just short. We saw great performances in newly expanded roles by our middles, Olivia and Danni. And, we are continuing our conversion of Victoria from a comfortable, limited role (boring) to a huge role that includes becoming a primary passer in service reception. Kendall has shifted from libero to a very hard-working outside hitter. We will continue to get better IF we continue to work hard in practice and then transfer that work to matches. Only three opportunities to get better this week before spring recess…let’s make the moments matter!

We will not participate in the SCVA event on Saturday, April 4.

Developmental

We have an SCVA Las Vegas League Tournament scheduled this Saturday, March 28. Initially, there was also an event scheduled for April 4 that was removed from the schedule with our support. We fully intend to field our three teams and expect that all our athletes will participate this coming Saturday. As the consummate team sport, we rely on every athlete on a team. The tournament has been on our schedule since December. All teams will play in an AM pool this Saturday. Please confirm with your coaches tonight your attendance at this Saturday’s tournament. 

Tuition Credit

We need volunteers this Saturday, March 28. We will use as many as three sites and expect there to only be AM pools. We will need between 10-12 volunteers. Please contact Coach Rios today to confirm your volunteer slot. 

Sand

We will release all the details of our new SAND Volleyball program this week, including pricing and registration. 

Camps

We will release all the details of our 2015 Summer Camps this week, including pricing and registration. Space will be limited!

Boys

We are thrilled to already be receiving so many inquiries about the Summer season. We know the practices begin May 5, 2015 for athletes not participating in the high school post season. Look for more specific information following Spring Recess.

Week of March 16

WOW! So that is what a weekend without volleyball feels like? 

MOTW

It was fun to attend the match last Friday evening at Green Valley as the Gators hosted Shadow Ridge. Shadow Ridge prevailed in straight sets. More importantly, it was fantastic to visit with all our VVC families represented on both teams.

This week on Tuesday, March 17, the MOTW is Palo Verde visiting Foothill High School. 

Girls 

We have a tournament this Saturday, March 21. We will depart on Friday, March 20 at 4 PM. We do need a parent volunteer to drive the van to/from the tournament as Coach Rios has a previously scheduled and disclosed conflict. 

Developmental

It was a fun week at practices last week. AND, it was fantastic to have so many of our younger athletes attend Sand Training last week. Coach Rios will continue to lead the beginning of a practice each week.

Next tournament is Saturday, March 28. We know it is the first weekend of CCSD spring recess. Please plan accordingly. We will not have any practices the week of CCSD spring recess.

Boys

Boys practices will begin May 5! This is the perfect time to invite HS teammates to investigate joining our VVC Family!

Please remember all our Boys are invited to attend weekly Sand Training as your schedule permits. We really do hope you can and will attend.

Sand

We are having a blast on the sand! Come join us Wednesdays from 4 – 5 PM. We will share our upcoming season information later this week. Our 2015 Sand Season will begin in April and extend through August.
