Physicals/Code of Conduct: A reminder to all 5th-8th grade students who plan on participating in sports this year. You will need a physical on file in the office, so please make plans to get that done as soon as possible. You will also need to complete the league Code of Conduct form. If you have any questions about the physical or need the forms please contact the school office.
Coaches: All coaches working with ILS teams will need a current background check on file with Mr. Angell. If you have not had a background check in the past two years, you will need to get that done. You can get those forms from Mr. Angell and he will submit them for processing.
We will have 3-girls’ volleyball teams this year. Grades 7-8 will play varsity, grade 6 will play JV, and 5th grade will be C-team. Our coaches this year are Jill Pallulat, Jamie Ad-kins, Laniya Howe, and Stephanie Smith. Practices next week will be Monday thru Wednesday with C-team and JV practicing from 3:30-4:30 and varsity from 4:30-5:30. All girls in 5th-8th grade are eligible to play. Game schedules will be available soon.
Attached is the volleyball schedule for 2014. The schedule is also on the APIAL web site (htosports.com/APIAL).
Note that there are only nine games this season. The league is experimenting with a new tournament format: the tournament will take two weeks and each team is guaranteed two games in the tournament – hence fewer season games. It is an experiment and will be revisited after volleyball to see if the new format will be used for basketball. Note also that the first week of the tournament is during our fall break.
