Bulldog Volleyball Pre-Season Parent Letter


Natalie Murray | 4/5/2022

Dear Volleyball Players and Parents:

The coaching staff is preparing for a great 2022 season. Here are some things you need to know:

I. The school district furnishes game uniforms, but does not provide volleyball shoes, knee pads, socks or ankle
** Players will be required to wear appropriate volleyball shoes, knee pads and socks. Ankle braces are not
required, but are highly recommended for all athletes particularly those with prior ankle

II. A 2022 physical is required. Physical forms and Emergency Care Forms are provided through Rank One and
must be on file with the school before any athlete can participate in practice. Please complete these
forms online prior to or on July 18th.. Per our school district requirements, no athlete will be able to
practice without being in compliance with the Rank One requirements.

III. The first few days of practice will serve as a try-out period for all players who did not attend the
Spring Tryouts. Final cuts will be made on Wednesday, July 20th.

IV. Practice and game schedules are enclosed; however, given that it is still early we are still working on it and
some changes will occur. Please clear all vacations, weddings, camps, etc. so no conflicts will arise.
All athletes will be expected to be at all practices, and those selected for the teams are expected to be at
scrimmages and games beginning July 18th through the end of the season. Please know that our season
starts before school is in session. Therefore, it is imperative that we divide the teams and begin
practicing as a unit as soon as possible. When a player misses practice, another player will be asked to
fill in for that position. This also goes for scrimmages and camps. This could result in a player losing
their position on the team.

Spring Tryouts:
May 16th , 17th, and 18th at Memorial HS from 4:30-6:30

July 18th ,19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th

*Pre-season scrimmages are still being scheduled.

Have a great summer, everyone! We look forward to seeing all of you in July!
