Holiday Season

Hey Giants!

Thank you all for pushing through the rotation work Tuesday at practice. I know rotations are long and confusing, and I really appretiate your attention and hard work. If you (girls) were not at practice, don't forget to join the group message so I can catch you up.

Our next practice after the break will be on January 8th. After that, there will be just one more practice, January 15th, before our first games on Saturday, January 19th. Once we get back from break, gameplay will increase at practices. Play your hardest but have fun! Also, if you have a volleyball at home, consider practicing over break. Setting, passing, and hitting can all be practiced against a wall. Some examples are in the video below.

A couple of people have asked me about what clinics to sign up for that will help improve their position skills. I have listed out below some key words to look for in clinics to sign up for each player. All players can also go to serving and passing clinics to refine those skills. I have put asterisks next to the player's main position to focus on.

Aubree- Backrow/passing middle back, Defensive specialist (DS)*, Middle Hitter

Kennedy- Middle Hitter*, Blocking

Nevaeh- Outside Hitter*, Blocking

Kaya (Liz)- Setting*, Rightside Hitter*, Backrow/Passing right back

Julia- Backrow/passing middle back, Defensive specialist (DS)*, Middle Hitter

Madeleine- Outside Hitter*, Blocking

Nika- Middle Hitter*, Blocking

Angelena- Backrow/passing left back, Defensive Specialist (DS)*, Outside Hitter

Olivia- Backrow/passing left back, Defensive Specialist (DS)*, Outside Hitter

Vanessa- Setter*, Rightside Hitter*, Backrow/Passing right back

 

Let me know if you have any questions. I hope you all have an enjoyable break and happy holidays!
