Announcement

All high school student athletes must register and be approved to participate in athletics by the school's athletic director each school year. You must have a current sports physical to upload to the registration portal. Sports physicals are current for one calendar year.

 

Mission

Our mission as an MPSSAA approved athletic program is to develop students as scholar athletes who respect the game, their teammates, their coaches and their opponents. We strive to create an atmosphere of positivity to allow our athletes to be risk-takers, as many athletes' first introduction to the sport competitively is their freshmen year.

Team Messaging

Please join both our Remind group to receive important announcements both before and during the season. The information to join can be found in the contact information section.

About the Program

We typically run a 6-2 rotation. If you are just learning the sport or have never played a 6-2 rotation we do recommend searching for videos on youtube explaining it because it can be overwhelming initially. Here is one such video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b48Y9BhVsSs. Other training resources can be found in our Google Classroom Group under Classwork - > Training Resources.

Our junior varsity and varsity girls volleyball teams compete in the fall sports season. The fall season official start date is the 6th Wednesday following the first Sunday of July. The season concludes the last week in October and then the team competes in the MPSSAA State Tournament.  There will be some pre-season open gym/conditioning opportunities in August. The dates are to be determined. To stay informed about pre-season and events during the season please join our Remind and Google Classroom groups. All athletes must be cleared  by our Athletic Director prior to participating in tryouts.  NO EXCEPTIONS

Our varsity team has consistently placed in the top few teams of the 1A/2A/3A division in Prince George's County. The team generally runs a 6-2 rotation. Athletes are encouraged to participate in out of season open gyms, clinics, and camps to gain experience and improve endurance.
