Mike Benson and I will be hosting a virtual parent meeting scheduled for Tuesday February 9th at 7:30pm which will cover procedures for tryouts and introduction of coaches. The primary contact email that you have submitted in the Prospective Athlete Form will be used to share the Google meet link on Tuesday morning. If you have a player who is interested and you have not filled out the Prospective Athlete Form please do so by Monday February 8th. In addition, I will briefly cover what coaches will be looking for regarding specific positions during tryouts.
After the teams have been finalized there will be a separate parent meeting to discuss the season in more detail.

This update is in regards to players that wish to play both club and high school volleyball. As we are working with the Athletic Department to finalize our schedule (tryouts dates TBD), these are a few things that need to be considered before tryouts for Briar Woods Volleyball:
- Briar Woods practices will be 2+ hours beginning February 15, 2021 (tentative)
- Varsity: 4:30-6:45pm (tentative)
- JV/Freshman: 6:45-8:45pm (tentative)
- You will attend all practices
- Friday practices will be mandatory (consider your club travel schedule)
- You will attend all games
- Same rules apply from last year's HS season regarding missing practices and games
- You will attend all practices
Questions to ask yourself:
- Are you able to give 100% during high school practices if you have club practice on the same day?
- If you have club practice, high school practice, a job and schoolwork, how are you going to manage your time?
- If you are planning to try out for Varsity, the State Championship Tournament is on the schedule for this season and we plan on being there. Are you willing to go ALL IN?
