Volleyball Team Update
Our facility situation is in flux, as it so often is at the beginning of our season. We’ll be beginning our strength and conditioning program at 4:00pm, on Wednesday, January 20th, in our old, dirty training room. We’re so “Rocky 4″. Mr. Copland is still working on gym time for us, but has not been able to secure anything yet. I’ll keep you posted.
I’d like to schedule a parent meeting immediately following our first practice. If you parent, or guardian isn’t on this email list, they need to be. Parent involvement and coordination is essential to a successful season. We are blessed to have some of the best. Lets make this year the best yet!
The coach at CPS will be hosting open gyms on Saturday afternoons, likely starting on the 23rd of January. He’s going to let me know when he finalizes the schedule. He’s very graciously opened it to us. We’ll likely carpool over together from Tech. I’ll notify you when I find out more.
Most of you went through the pre-season weight training last year. This year will be highly compressed and intense. In an effort to hit the ground running (pun totally intended ), you should all practice a (3/20yd 20sec.) split, every-other day. That means that you should be comfortable running three consecutive 20yd sprints, separated by 20 second rest periods. We’ll likely work out with six to eight splits per day. Each complete split should be followed by a minimum three minute rest period. Some of you are just coming out of soccer season, so you should be in pretty god shape. If you’re not, start today. Seniors, get your guys together. Your opponents have already started. We were competitive with some of the best teams in NorCal, last year. Let’s improve on that, this year.
