7th and 8th Grade Girls Volleyball
We are excited to announce that volleyball will begin Tuesday September 29th. In order to follow safety guidelines the voluntary practice we will be OUTSIDE, please dress accordingly. These are voluntary practices and will not impact your participation next year.
Weather permitting, practices will be held every Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:15pm to 4:30pm until November 6th. Players must be picked up at 4:30 in the front of the middle school.
Practices will include individual skill development and fitness based activities specific to volleyball. We will meet every day on our outdoor field assignment which is TBA.
Each player must bring their own labeled personal water bottle. NO water will be provided and there will be NO access to inside the building.
Specific safety guidelines will be covered during our first practice. When arriving to practice, a mask should be on and social distance maintained.
Expect to complete a form at each practice and have your temperature checked.
If you completed the registration over the summer than you are registered!

Volleyball Equipment Tips for New Players:
Knee pads are helpful and suggested but not required to be on the court.
Coaches do not make recommendations on brands for shoes nor does GVMS Volleyball have any discounts for items with local sporting good stores for volleyball. Players may wear athletic sneakers and do not need to invest in expensive volleyball specific shoes just for the middle school season.
Players may wear own white or black socks, crew or ankle, their choice for games.
Jerseys are the only item provided by the school. They are costly for parents to replace if lost so we remind players to take care of them and not put them in the dryer.
Players may wear solid black shorts or spandex for games. Small logos are acceptable but not colored piping along the edges. Reasonable length of shorts/spandex is required. Please see Coach if further explanation is needed.
Players are not to wear jewelry or have hair bands around their wrists. They may wear soft headbands/hairbands during the games in solid black or white if needed.
Players may bring water bottles and healthy snacks for games.
Players should wear sweatshirts/sweatpants to games when the cooler weather arrives.
I am often asked about resources for skill development outside of the school. I do not recommend one program over the other but I have created a list of opportunities that may be available in our area.
