What an amazing first tournament! Thank you to the Valgardson and Nava families who provided the food for the players and coaches on Friday and Saturday! We all had the energy to last through a long couple of days. It was so much fun to watch our girls play against great competition and show how we can work together as a team. We have already come a long way since we first stepped on the court in October, but we still have a long ways to go to reach our potential! Please send me the best photos that you may have taken during the tournament which I’m compiling for an end-of-season video.
I hope we all look forward to getting back in the gym for practice. There are conflicts at the Middle School so we will practice at Freedom Academy Elementary School at 1190 W 900 N, Provo, UT 84604 on both Tuesday and Thursday this week.
The homework assignment due at the beginning of practice on Thursday, January 31, is TalkingPoints_Week_03_Emotional_Tank from the Positive Coaching Alliance.
Our tournament on February 9 will again be at the Karl Malone Training Center at 525 E 200 S, Lehi, UT 84043 (Club 801 volleyball facility). Our team is currently scheduled to play first at 8:00 AM. I would like all of the players to be in the gym and warming up on the court by 7:30 AM at the very latest.
I have made a change to our last tournament of the season location. I found what I think will be a higher caliber tournament in Logan, UT instead of travelling to Boise, ID. Elevate Athletics will pay for the hotel rooms for the players and the club and coaches will provide for all the players’ food that April 26-27 weekend. I will send out more details as we get closer to that event. Please let me know if you have any questions.
