Team news - 10/13/2008

Mon October 13 2008 @ 02:56 PM

To all:

Well, it was definitely a very volleyball week last week... and we have another coming up this week!!!

I realize that the 8th graders will be taking Terra Nova testing all week, so please advise me asap if your player cannot attend something and/or needs to leave early, etc.

All events are posted on the team calendar on wagdogs. If you click on the name of each event, you will see additional info about the event/game and anyy notes/comments.

Monday, 10/13 - 5:30pm / 7:00pm

Shanahan is hosting Villa at Shanahan for a game that will benefit the fight against breast cancer. There is a rumor of free admission if the girls wear their CYO uniforms... however, I have not been able to confirm that. I HAVE been able to confirm that a discount will be granted anyone who wears pink. so have your player wear their uniform AND something pink & you'll get the best deal possible!

This is always a great game to watch, plus we have several former SSJ players on both of these teams. Cone & enjoy! I will try to get to the JV game, but I personally have a game at 7:30pm in Plymouth Meeting, so I can't stay long...

Tuesday, 10/14 - 7pm

Allis Soto, club coach, VB referee, and player from CA, is coming to help us improve our defense and hitting. Come ready to work... we're going to get St. Max the next time!

Wednesday, 10/15 - 7pm

We are trying to set up a home scrimmage game on Wednesday vs. St. Kevin's beginning at 7pm. Please advise asap if your player is not available.

Thursday, 10/16 - 7pm

Practice - preparing to win the Keystone Tournament. Hopefully, we will have a chance to face St. Joe's again!

Saturday, 10/18 - Keystone Juniors Tournament

Tournament in Downingtown. Details will be sent as soon as I get them. There will be an additional permission slip to be signed... watch your email for the tournament draw/game schedule and this permission slip.

Sunday, 10/20, 3pm - League game vs. Ss. Peter & Paul

This is our final league game vs. Ss. Peter & Paul.

Next stop: Saturday, 10/25 - Region 17 tournament

Our goal: win the bid to post-season play by coming in first!! The Little Engine that Could said it best: I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.... WOW! I DID it!!!


Dance, 10/24

There are four girls/families I have not yet gotten a response about the dance. I will be asking the girls to personally advise me of their intentions at practice tomorrow if I do not hear their responses before then.

Money matters

  • Community project: We are making pillows for injured troops. Please send/bring $6. If sending a check, make it payable to Stephanie Marvel. Tentative date: Wednesday, 10/29 in Monahan Hall... will be confirmed shortly.

  • Tournament payments: There are still 4 players who did not send in the $16 for our 4th tournament. The CYO paid for three tournaments this year (one more than last year), but the parents agreed to chip in for the 4th: $160 split by 10 players - $16 per player.

Calendar notes:

  • Add Wednesday, 10/22, to your calendar: I am trying to get a scrimmage game with St. Dot's or MDP or someone outside our region who can block & hit hard against us.
  • Add Wednesday, 10/29, to your calendar: tentative date for the community project.
  • Add Sunday, 11/2, to your calendar: that is the date for our end-or-season party (all teams)
  • Add 11/7 & 11/8 to your calendar for Archdiocesan playoffs: When we are successful in winning the post-season bid, we will continue to practice during the weeks of 10/26 & 11/3 with the playoffs occuring on BOTH Saturday & Sunday, as long as we continue to win! Our practice during week of 10/26 will be normal times, but our practice during the week of 11/3 will be in coordination with the basketball program.

I think I can... I think I can...
