1) Does my child need a physical to participate in tryouts? Only rising 9th-12th graders need a physical to participate in tryouts. You can find instructions on athletic registration at https://sprayberryathletics.com/2018/04/14/2018-2019-athletic-registration-instructions/. Even though the instructions are dated for 2018, they apply to this school year as well. Everything is filled out and uploaded through Parentvue. You can start the step-by-step process now and print out the needed forms via Parentvue. It is very important that this is completed before tryouts.
2) How can my daughter get ready for tryouts? Please check out these websites for some local training opportunities scheduled for next week - https://www.cobbatlanta.com/calendar and https://www.phoenixrisingvb.com/skills-training. Or just simply practice at home using this video from our own Coach Kat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlZgBocX3gk&feature=youtu.be
3) When are practice times? There will be open gym time during the month of June on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2pm-5pm for high school and 5-7pm for Jr Jackets, and Mondays from 9am-noon for skill work for high school. Regular practices for JV/V will begin the first day of school on Monday-Friday 3:45pm-5:45pm on non-game days. Jr Jackets will practice on Mondays and Thursdays 6-8pm (Thursdays will be Friday practices when there is a gym conflict).
4) Will there be a summer camp? Yes, high school summer camp July 12-14th, 9-4pm; middle school camp TBD tentative July 12-16th 1-5pm.
5) How much should I expect to pay in player fees? This remains to be determined for 2021. For reference only, last year’s fees were $400 for JV/Varsity. Final fees will be communicated at the parent meeting on May 17th. Middle school fees will be around $370 for Jr Jackets. These will be finalized at the Jr Jacket parent meeting August 6th.
6) How can I help? We will gladly accept help in the way of volunteering time, donations, fundraising, etc. Please attend the JV/Varsity parent meeting on May 17th to learn more. Middle school meeting will be August 6th.
Registration is now open for Sprayberry Volleyball 2021 Tryouts -
We work hard to
Teach, Train, and Encourage Young Girls to Excel in the Sport of Volleyball While Creating a Positive, Productive, and Cooperative Awareness Between Players, Coaches, Parents, and Sprayberry High School.
Our Sprayberry Vision
Our vision is to live and teach the fundamental concepts of teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, and accountability through the game of volleyball. We want to also open up future opportunities by building connections with college volleyball coaches for the recruiting of players.
“This volleyball program helped inspire me to become a coach myself. I will always have appreciation for Sprayberry because they have made me a better coach, and a better person, through my experiences here.”
