Volleyball is a TEAM sport which demands that individuals work as one, in a fast-paced test of coordination, concentration and cooperation. Building a team requires a commitment from players and parents.
As a Lady Bulldog, players are expected to attend every practice*, match, and other team activities, including riding the team bus together for away matches.
*Practices are typically 5:00-7:00PM in the Westfield gym unless a match or other team activity is scheduled.
Any questions, please feel free to contact Coach Christie at firstname.lastname@example.org
