Both the 7th and 8th grade teams are looking for girls who have those special qualities: strong volleyball skills, good attitude, coachability, love of the sport, commitment, hard work, spirit, teamwork, and fun.  Our primary goal as coaches is to make the athletic experience for the students memorable, while working on skill development and sportsmanship.
