Team Announcements

Looking Back: Let's Let The Parents Have The Final Word!

I wanted each of you to know how much I have enjoyed getting to know you this season. I will cherish our times together. Traveling, cheering, eating, and of course, indulging in chocolate together was a blast. I hope that our paths will cross again soon.


This has been the BEST year of travel volleyball our FAMILY has ever had!! Not only did our daughter learn, grow and enjoy... us parents enjoyed being at each activity, weekend, practice, etc. because each of you were a joy to be around! We are extremely grateful to have been blessed with this opportunity of a lifetime - this is what "team" is supposed to be about! When I speak to other parents about our season, the only response I ever hear is "WOW, you are SO lucky!"


 In addition to our daughter's improved volleyball skills--not that important in the overall scheme of things--she has matured and learned so much from the coaches and for that my wife and I are grateful to you. Sometimes it takes a non-parent (adult) to help reinforce or get a message across.


Just wanted you all to know that we have really enjoyed our time with you all--you really are a great group of people.  Our daughter will have memories that will last a lifetime and life lessons that she may not realize now but she will definitely use later. It has been exhausting but I am really sad that it's over and I am really going to miss our volleyball weekends.


Oh my goodness, so many moments from this season (ones I am aware of and ones I am not yet aware of) to carry forward with in my heart, it truly has been an honor and a pleasure to have met and shared with all of you.


Grays: we will miss sweet Sarah but grateful to have gotten the chance to meet you and won't forget cracker barrel!
Dietzs: loved the stories! Always know I will walk away smiling after a conversation with the Dietzs.
Cindy P, you truly are the nicest person I have ever met in my life!  Great example of someone who gives her best and looks for it in others.
Jeannine, a wise woman, love your philosophy on life. What a giver of yourself. You are one of those people in life that I feel blessed to have known.
Patty, how do u do it? What sacrifices u make for your family!  We see it, God sees it.
Lee, one of God's gifts to some people is hospitality. You have it and use it beautifully.
Cindi H, a caring heart, not just for your girl, but for all of ours. Thanks for encouraging words.
Beth Anne, what a worker bee u are, thanks for all the time you gave to finding us beds!
Joyces, the really funny thing is-no one in Henry or Patrick Co. would ever accuse our families of being rednecks!!
Best of all, Hannah had her buddy back - makes it all worthwhile.

Two Liberos for Next Season!

USA Volleyball has announced that a team may designate two liberos per set next year.  You can read more about it here.


A Valuable Lesson

"If you fail to look after your teammates, you lose much more than a few vball matches.  But if teammates embrace each other, then they will gain much more than winning those matches. " 

We're Online & 18's On UTube!

There are articles about our team here, here  and here.

Also, here's some video of our 18's team at BigSouth on YouTube!

"I'm so glad my parents let me know play on this team.  I tell my mom all the time that I don't know what I would do if I hadn't played for this team.  And when I see other teams I tell her how even if they went to Nationals I wouldn't give up our team for anything.  I told her I'm going to cry all the time once the season is over!  I told Coach Easter that when we were watching [another team from Virginia] how you can tell they aren't as close as we are and how it makes such a huge difference and that I'm so glad we're not like that."
