Offers: 12 Twisters, 13s, and 14s
Offers are posted now for 12 Twisters, 13-and-Under, and 14-and-Under. If your name does not appear, please be patient. As athletes decline our offer, we will update offers. There are many factors that go into team selection. Some, like HSAA regulations (the "rule of 3"), are beyond our control. Please bear with us as this process unfolds.
If you accept our offer, please have a parent send an e-mail response to firstname.lastname@example.org. To complete your USA Volleyball registration, go to your account, pay the total fee due, and declare "Kaepa Borderline" as your club. Everyone is welcome to register for skills sessions as they are available if they are full members. We will start hosting skills sessions after tryouts for 15s-18s have been hosted.
Miami Red Hawks

Did Tori Clifford work on passing and serving with your team? Remember when Meg Riley helped at your team's practice??
