Practice Schedule

The final practice schedule leading up to the OVR Girls' Championships is posted. Always check for changes. Be ready to hit the courts after Easter!

The Week of April 14

This is a reminder that we do not have practices this week. This was announced at the beginning of the season and was reiterated with the last practice schedule 3 weeks ago and is also still on the homepage: Practice Schedule "The practice schedule through April 20 is posted. After going through 12-15 Spring Break schedules and numerous conflicts, we developed the practice schedule for the next two weeks. There may be some athletes missing for their Spring vacations. We do not have any practices scheduled for the week before Easter." Some teams talked about playing some sand volleyball this week but the weather doesn't look good to do that. If anyone wants to do lessons this week, we may be able to arrange that. Happy Easter!
