Hello, Bayhawks volleyball players and families,
I hope this email finds you well. I cannot believe we are just one week away from tryouts! It has been an amazing experience coaching and getting to know you all this summer. As we move on to tryouts week, I want to share with you essential information for tryouts and the upcoming season.
Our tryout dates are August 22nd, 23rd, and 24th from 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm. Players are expected to participate every day as we are going to be working on different skills each day.
On day one we will be working on fundamentals and conditioning. Day two is going to be a position-based tryout, where our coaches are going to see each player perform in the actual positions the players are trying out for. On day 3, coaches are going to be looking at in-game situations, communication, and coachability.
