These practices are open to all incoming athletes interested in volleyball at Steilacoom High School. Sometimes we may practice by position, by ability, or by age group. To practice during the summer you need to bring court shoes, water and appropriate clothing for volleyball (no crop tops or jeans, please). Summer is not an evaluative time and nothing is mandatory, however if you are going to miss practices or not attend but plan to tryout in the fall let us know so we can plan accordingly. We have 28 opportunities for all athletes interested in volleyball to get better!
Tryouts start August 20, 2018 and will run for a few days. We will make initial cuts after four practice sessions (end of the second day) and then create teams after four more sessions. For tryouts you must be cleared through Family ID. Select the SHS Forms page on the volleyball website or go to the SHS website for more information.
