Congratulations to all our club players on a remarkable first season!!! Seriously, I could spend the next hour writing a novel about all of the amazing things these girls accomplished in only 4.5 months. I tried my best to blog everything via
To keep the girls touching a volleyball, here is what our area has lined up so far, starting next month:
1.) High 5 Sports rec thru Bethlehem, signups are taking place now, you can register at
^This is open to everyone^
2.) Starting June (check our Webpage calendar) we will start playing some open pick up grass once a week, on Thursday nights – “Thursday Night Lights!!!”. Park and Sun Sports nets and Molten BV5000 balls. We will start 3 nets, 3 balls and hopefully end 5 nets, 5 balls – packed with girls. We are planning to use the soccer fields at Bethlehem Church south campus during the evenings (7:45 – 9:45 PM) under the lights!! This will be for ALL girls in Gaston that want to play (not just our club). Cost will be 5 dollars a player per week (bring 5 dollars when you show up to play etc.). There is no better way to grow your game than 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 – due to the number of touches on the ball. We will divide skill groups up into competitive play, rec play etc on each net if needed depending on who shows. It will be simple round robin play with a large whiteboard to keep track of wins/losses. I might even toss in some prizes towards the end of this ongoing event.
^This is open to everyone^
Girls can partner up and play in Barefoot Juniors 2v2 grass tournaments (U12, U14 U16 and U18). http://www.bearfootvolleyball.com/schedule.html the first one is May 21.
