Volleyball mini-camps for girls entering 5th through 8th grade will be held this June for all St. Joseph girls who register to play volleyball this fall.  While the mini-camps are not mandatory, they are highly recommended. Our mini-camps will help to prepare girls for evaluations. All camps are held in the SJS gym.  Players should bring athletic shoes for use in the gym and a water bottle. NO spandex or yoga pants. NO jewelry, especially earrings. Kneepads are highly recommended.  The head coach for your child’s grade level as well as other assistant coaches will direct camps. The cost is $20.00 per student athlete for the instructional camp and includes a camp T-shirt.

Mandatory evaluations for team splits for St. Joseph Crusader Volleyball will be held for all girls who will be entering 5th through 8th grade.  The evaluations are held in the SJS gym. All students playing volleyball this fall MUST ATTEND as this is the only evaluation date for each grade level. Team practices will begin in August and the league will begin play the weekend following Labor Day.

 

Any questions or concerns regarding volleyball should be directed to Kim Harbauer; kimharbauer@icloud.com or Erin Moore; erinmoore4400@att.net
