Hopewell Junior School                Fall, 2017

At Hopewell Junior there is a 7th and 8th grade volleyball team.
Each team is made of 10-12 girls.  Girls trying out for the team
should have fundamental knowledge of the game.  If you would
like to try out, but you haven't had much experience we strongly
suggest signing up for a camp/clinic.  The Lakota East Volleyball
 Camp is scheduled for July 10-13 (5pm-8pm).  There are many more
local camps and train teams if you are interested that can help
sharpen your volleyball skills.  (See below)



  • Conditioning and Open Gym: July 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 ,31.  These Conditioning and Open Gym dates will be held at Hopewell Jr. School.

    Times will be 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.  Attendance is strongly encouraged, although not mandatory.


  • Try-outs: August 1st and 2nd at Hopewell Jr. School Gymnasium
            7th grade: 9:30 am – 11:00 am
            8th grade: 11:15 am – 12:45 pm

  • Completed Physical Forms are DUE at the first try-out date.

  • First day of Official Team Practice: August 3rd at Hopewell Jr. School  (time will be determined later)

    Each girl needs to bring:

  • A water bottle for conditioning (we may do some conditioning outside and it will be HOT)

  • Kneepads

  • Running shoes or cross trainers


    Fees:  Volleyball fees will not need to be paid until your daughter knows if she has made either the 7th or 8th grade team.  Fees will then need to be paid within 5 days of making the team.  The fee is $150.00.


    ***Please go to Hopewell Jr. Athletics website periodically during the summer for updated information.  If we need to alter practices times, due to building maintenance, we will post the new information on the Hopewell Jr. Athletics website.



    Girls making the team will be chosen based on their ability to play the game, their enthusiasm, good sportsmanship, and attitude.  You are expected to attend all practices and games.  If you do not make the team you should play club volleyball to increase skills, and try out the following year.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email me call one of the coaches listed below.
