Beware of Volleyball Dawgs

My Students

Our boys' volleyball student-athletes have been put on a positive pathway for success in the classroom and on the volleyball court. We made great strides in the spring of 2017 by lifting our varsity team into one that competed for a district championship (2nd place) and county championship tournament (5th place); and a JV team who won the end of the year 10-team tournament. We also received recognition from our state athletic association for having an overall team GPA of over a 3.0 to earn the "Team Academic Award."

The young men who are a part of our program have gained valuable lessons throughout the time they have been training and competing, and we don't want that to be lost as we look towards our official volleyball season in the coming months.

I'm especially proud of the progress we have made with our players that come from minority backgrounds (including some international students) who compete against teams with much more money and playing experience on travel/club teams.

My Project

One of our weakest skills last year was serve receive/passing, so the target trainer will allow our passers to train more effectively while allowing our setter to train with the hitters on another net. In addition, the jump ropes will allow us to work more on our jump/plyometric training...elevating our hitting and blocking abilities.

The volleyball equipment we are asking for will allow us to train at a higher level and replace some very old equipment that is currently defective.

Our old flip scoreboards are either missing numbers or torn, dry erase board is dyed with overuse of markers, and we need a replacement antenna for one that was broken in the fall.
