Important Tryout Information!

Hello, all!

As you know, school is just around the corner, which means fall sports are about to begin! Hopefully this is just a reminder, but here is what our tryouts will look like this week:
Thursday, August 16
5:30-7:30pm
Friday, August 17
11am-1pm AND 5:30-7:30pm
In order to participate, all players MUST be registered for the 2018-2019 school year in FormReLeaf and have a current physical either on file or in-hand. I have reached out to a handful of players already after discovering they were not registered for this school year. Please double check that you are registered for volleyball and for 2018-2019! If either you do not have a current physical or you are not properly registered, you cannot practice.
Additionally, I would appreciate if players would fill out a general information survey. Thank you to the 20+ of you who already have! This quick survey (it’s been taking players about 10 min to fill it out) will help me and the other coaches get a better understanding of who you are, your background, and your volleyball interests. This is not mandatory, but it would be very helpful for us as we try to get to know you during tryouts and will help us with goal setting throughout the season.
After 8/17, some 9th and 10th graders may be invited to continue tryouts with the upperclassmen (11th and 12th graders) for the Varsity team. Tryouts for Varsity will continue into next week, starting on Monday from 5:30-7pm. For the rest of the 9th and 10th graders, once we have a better idea of how many girls are interested in playing this season, we will let you know our next steps.
I know a lot of players are nervous about tryouts. The purpose of our first three practices is to get an idea of where you are as players, and where we are as a program. Come ready to play, and don’t be afraid to ask questions and make mistakes! I don’t know a single volleyball player who has ever gotten better by being quiet or trying to avoid contacting a ball in fear of messing up. I truly believe volleyball is for everyone–if this year a CVU team isn’t the best fit for you, I’ll help you find some place that is.
I look forward to seeing you all on Thursday!
Coach Nauheimer
