I hope you have had a restful, safe summer. I am excited to introduce myself as the new Head Varsity Volleyball Coach. I have been at Sprayberry for 5 years now. I have experience coaching Sprayberry Baseball and am currently Head Coach of Sprayberry Swim and Drive and Sprayberry Men's Tennis. I also coached the Volleyball Junior Jacket A Team along with Coach Kat last year.
For a bit of an update: tryouts begin August 10th. The tryout times have shifted slightly: High School tryouts will run 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM and Middle School tryouts will run from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM. For all rising and current high school players, a physical MUST be on file in order to participate in tryouts. There is a new physical form per the county, so please reach out if you have any questions on the procedure:
To upload a physical:
Print the document attached above.
Get the physical DATED and SIGNED by your doctor.
Ensure that the physical, medical eligibility form, Athletic Participation Consent, and all other attached forms are all properly filled out and updated.
Take a picture (JPEG) or scan the document.
Upload the document to your ParentVue (under the "Athletic Registration" tab)
Please spread the word to anyone interested in playing who might not see this message! Any level of skill is welcome at tryouts for any team.
I am going to schedule a Zoom interest session for Q&A with the parents and players. There will be multiple safety protocols we will have to follow this season in order to play per GHSA. Please have patience and understanding as we navigate these procedures. There may be schedule changes to games, but we will keep everybody informed as changes happen.
Our Varsity Assistant Coach is Calyn Autry and our JV Head Coach is Jessica Smith. We are welcoming Coach Smith into the Sprayberry volleyball program and are excited that Coach Autry is returning to the volleyball program as my assistant.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions. I can be reached at John.White@cobbk12.org.
