2018 Lady Eagles and Friends:
I have a practice schedule drafted for the 2018 volleyball season. I know it is sometimes helpful to have this information as you are making school, vacation and family plans. Please make every effort to be at every practice at the beginning of the season. Players are evaluated and team selections are made during tryouts, July 24-27; games begin in early August.
The August 10 through October 26 games will mostly be played on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will be an occasional game on a Monday or Friday. Tournaments are either all day Saturday or Friday/Saturday.
Once the season starts, September and October practices will be on two days. Monday's and Wednesday's practices will be from 4:15-6:15.
High school teams will practice on both days.
Junior high teams will practice on one of those days.
The coach will determine which day for their team. That date will be announced when we are closer to the season.
**Practices will be at the Skyline facility:
Skyline Houston Athletic Complex
10510 Westview Dr.
Houston, TX 77043
Please arrive earlier than the stated practice time, at least 15-20 minutes prior to the time listed. You need to be ready to be on the court at the start of practice.
