Annual Volleyball Workday This Sunday

posted Jul 28, 2011, 12:30 AM by Brian Kubena   [ updated Jul 28, 2011, 12:40 AM by Bellaire Volleyball ]

The Sunday before tryouts is our last chance to prepare the gym, locker room, and equipment for the new season. Please meet us at the gym to help out on Sunday (2011-07-31) from 10:00 am until 12:30 pm (or whenever we finish). Wear your work clothes and be ready to clean, hammer, sweep, and work your way into a feeling of pride for Bellaire High School and the volleyball team.

Come to the gym as early as possible so that we can finish all of the tasks and rest up for tryouts on Monday (2011-08-01). We hope to see you there. Go Cardinals!

Freshmen Volleyball Camp This Week

posted Jul 20, 2011, 12:23 PM by Brian Kubena   [ updated Jul 20, 2011, 9:15 PM by Bellaire Volleyball ]

A camp is being held for all incoming freshmen who are interested in playing volleyball at Bellaire. The camp will be held at the Bellaire High School Gym from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm on this Friday (2011-07-22) and from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm on this Saturday (2011-07-23).

This is a great way to meet the coaching staff, improve on your skills and understand the game of volleyball taught the Bellaire Cardinal Way. Because tryouts are only one day (2011-08-01), this is an excellent time for our coaching staff to take a look at your skills without the upperclassmen in the gym. Contact Ap Clarke by email at gclarke@houstonisd.org or by phone at 281-221-3624 fo
r more information.

You also won't want to forget about the last two Open Gym dates coming up next week. Monday and Wednesday (from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm each day) are the last times you will have to brush up on your skills with all of the other prospective Bellaire volleyball players. Play focused, play smart, and play tough. Go Cardinals!
