Stars Shine at the VBBC Season Opener!
January 26, 2019
What a great way to start the season! Our goals for this tourney were to learn the system, to try hard, and to be positive – all so we could have fun. We definitely achieved our goals! We really improved in learning the system over the day. We had lots of fun and won some sets and games - we ended up 10th in the AA standings - WOW!!!! (remember that is a higher group than the A group)
This team has so much potential! We will be working hard in practice this week to learn some more new skills and get in better shape so we can play our best volleyball at the end of the day when we are tired – and then we will practice it again at next week’s tourney at Cap U.
Thanks so much to the parents for all their support – for driving, cheering, scoring, lineskeeping - and dealing with the parking situation...
Thanks to all the assistant coaches for giving up their Saturday to help the team learn/remember the system. We are lucky to have them all!!
