MARCH 3/2018 -

STARS BRILLIANT IN KELOWNA!

What a great weekend in Kelowna!  Lots of great team bonding – without our phones! - and the players were great ambassadors for the Stars Club by being respectful and polite in the hotel and at the tourney.  And the volleyball was the best of the season for us!  Every player has improved so much from our first tourney – and even improved over the weekend.  We all had great team spirit and realized “what we love most about having  {our teammates} on our team” – everyone contributes different strengths, and we had so much fun and played so well.  We had lots of fight this weekend!!

Thanks to the chaperones and parents – and the assistant coaches - for all their great support – including letting us make our own lunches!

See some of the top (there many more!) player highlights below:

#1 – Marcela – Great reliable passing, solid serving – and what a sweet hit in the last game!!!

#2 – Dani – Great serving today.  And some really beautiful sets.  Great job being coachable and incorporating my suggestions into your game – you are improving so fast!

#3 Emma – Great job on the serving, and best hitting of the season.  Fantastic job!

#4 – Joy – did we ever miss you and your wonderful positive energy – but you were with us in spirit!

#5 – Ashley – Awesome serving.  Great job backing off to hit and hitting corners.  Fantastic improvement on defence!

#6 – Emily – Excellent serving!  Great improvement on passing and great hitting!  Best tourney so far!  Love how you are trying to be coachable and learn – it is paying off!

#7 – Hudson – Amazing serving and speed on defence, as well as reliable serve receive.  Great job!

#15 – Anni – Best sets of the day – so beautiful.  And some great serving.  Plus I think you are really  improving on “defence first!”  Way to “do your job” – so important.
