Girls Varsity Volleyball
The Manchester Girls Volleyball team goes to Liberty University for five days every summer for camp. It is always one of the highlights of our season. We take both varsity and JV teams, so anyone interested in playing volleyball (particularly rising 8th or 9th graders) is welcome to join us. It is not mandatory but highly encouraged that prospective players attend if at all possible. Our varsity team gets a chance to play together for the first time, and girls looking to try out for JV can get a feel for the game, participate in valuable skills clinics, and see what really high-level volleyball looks like.
The dates this years are Sunday July 16, 2017 to Thursday July 20, 2017. The cost is $350. A $50 deposit and Team Camp Application (found here) are due to Coach Stillman by May 15. The remaining $300 can be brought to camp on July 16. Checks should be made out to Maximum Performance Volleyball.
The team will meet at Manchester at noon on Sunday and then caravan/carpool to Liberty together. The girls play a warm-up match on Sunday evening after we check in that parents are welcome to attend. The teams then play ten matches across Monday-Wednesday that will determine seeding for the elimination tournament on Thursday. Wednesday evening there are 3v3 tournaments for JV, varsity, and coaches that are fun as well. When we finish up on Thursday depends on how deep we go in our respective tournaments (JV and varsity), but parents can come Thursday to watch as well. We will need parents to help carpool students back to Manchester.
The past few years our JV coach has been unable to attend and a recently graduated senior has agreed to go to coach the JV team at camp. In years past we've had Sam Morton, Manuela Gomez, and Jordin Letusick come back for one more year to coach. This year will be no different, as we have former team captain Lauren Ciavolella going with us! Lauren has experience coaching in the Impact development league and will be a great help to the JV players that week.
Girls Volleyball tryouts will be held in the gym Monday July 31 - Wednesday August 2, 2017, 9:00am - 12noon. There will be regular practice for the team on Thursday and Friday that week at the same time. Practices will be 9am-11:30am after that until teacher work week the last week of August.
Remember, all forms here must be filled out and turned in BEFORE an athlete can participate in tryouts. Athletes can bring the forms with them to the first day of tryouts, but until I have all the forms, the athlete can not participate.
