Volleyball: 2020 Volleyball Season Update

Volleyball: 2020 Volleyball Season Update 


 

8/6/20 – I wanted to get an update out with the latest details for our 2020-21 volleyball season to keep families in the know.

 

Volleyball has been re-designated as a SPRING sport for this school year (specific dates are TBD but would likely be mid-March to mid-May)

 

What does this mean in the short term?

  • -We will be cancelling and rescheduling the Captains’ Practices from next week to the Spring (dates TBD)
  • -We will be cancelling and rescheduling the Tryouts from 8/17-8/19 to the Spring (dates TBD)
  • -Families will NOT need to register for Volleyball until Spring registration opens
  • -I would like to KEEP the planned kickoff meeting night (8/20) and use it as an open forum for any families that would like more information or to have a voice (details will be coming out shortly)

 

What about the timeframe between now and the Spring season?

  • -We will be adding optional Fall programming in the form of POD / Open Gym style format (pending MSHSL approved constraints) after Labor Day
  • -Most local clubs are now opening their Fall programming to 9-12 grade athletes – these could be options if they are a fit for your family
  • -There is nothing that prohibits athletes from doing both if they like and if it fits with family plans
  • -I still highly recommend getting your sports physical taken care of with the free physicals being offered locally this fall as it will make sure you are ready when VB rolls around!

 

What about the clash between Club and HS Volleyball in the Spring?

  • -This one still has a lot of unknowns but is being worked on every day by leaders in our volleyball community
  • -We are trying to get options in place with clubs and the MSHSL to allow the athletes options to do both – still a lot of work to see what that would look like
  • -Give this one a little time for more details to be fleshed out – I will continue to share what I know.

Volleyball: 2020 Volleyball Season Update

Volleyball: 2020 Volleyball Season Update


8/4/20 - We all heard today after the MSHLS Board of Directors vote that the high school volleyball season will be pushed out to the Spring. I know that this information is causing our community frustration, confusion, and grief as we try to digest the impact on the athletes we hold so close to our heart!

 

Here is what I know:

     -  Our fall season has been postponed to be rescheduled as a spring sport (mid-March to mid-May)
     -  The MSHSL has approved for volleyball to move forward with practices in the fall if it fits within our program direction for the spring season.

 

Here is what I don’t know yet:
     -  DETAILS – the “what” and “how” of the forward path is now starting to be worked out and there are many moving parts and minutia – I will share with our families all the details as I have them.

 

What I need from each of our Crimson Volleyball Families:
     -  Take a deep breath and remember that while the decisions made may not be something we like or want, they were done with the best interest of our athletes and community at heart.
     -  Be understanding and empathic to those in our community around you as people react differently to the feelings they are having.
     -  Talk to your athletes and let them voice how they feel and let them know how you feel about the situation.
     -  Stay calm and be prepared to FLEX – These may be strange times but this is a Volleyball region and I know that the leadership of our volleyball community is already working to lay foundations to support our athletes.

 

Last of all (and most importantly from my perspective) – Reach Out. I will share everything I know via our media outlets but if you are still questioning or struggling with where things are I want to hear from you.
