However, on Monday (8/30/21), all players that would like to formally tryout for the varsity team will have their chance to demonstrate their skills and knowledge relating to competitive team volleyball for the coaches to evaluate. The varsity team will be announced at the end of the practice session.

Fall Season 2 - 2021 Section 1 Boys' Volleyball Finals: Scarsdale HS vs Clarkstown North at Scarsdale High School
https://vimeo.com/538218539The fall 2021 Scarsdale High School athletic department will field two levels of Boys' Volleyball teams:
- Varsity is for the top volleyball players, regardless of grade-level.
- JV is for players to develop their skills and capabilities to give them the best chance to potentially move up to the Varsity level when their play is compatible with that level of competition.
Open gyms for volleyball take place on Thursday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30 pm. They are open to all SUFSD students.
I have requested times to hold open gym during the summer prior to organized team practices. Once I have confirmation from the Athletic Department, I will update the Google Classroom and this website.
Varsity level volleyball is a commitment of about 3-4 hours per day, up to 7 days a week with an occasional Saturday tournament. It is our expectation that athletes will be present for all team tryouts, scrimmages, practices, games, and tournaments.
The team's game and practice schedule will be available via shared Google Calendar. Each team will have their own calendar.
Missing practices and games will have an impact upon the student's playing time in subsequent practices and/or games.
The regular season ends in early November for both teams.
Varsity is then eligible for post-season play.
