Girls' Volleyball

  • Girls Volleyball

     
    WELCOME TO 2021 SCARSDALE RAIDER VOLLEYBALL!
     

    We have four girls volleyball teams at Scarsdale High School as follows:

    • Varsity A is for the top volleyball players, regardless of grade level.
    • Varsity B is primarily for juniors and seniors who have a playing background and are competitive, but do not make Varsity A. As space allows, freshmen and sophomores are also considered.
    • JV A and JV B are for freshmen and sophomores. Juniors and seniors are not eligible for JV. Some years these teams were evenly mixed between freshman and sophomores and other years we have had one team predominately from one grade, and the other team from the other grade.

    Tryouts (may be adjusted later or earlier due to heat index)

    Varsity Tryouts:

    • Monday, August 23 at 9:30am-12pm  and 1:30-3pm
    • Tuesday, August 24 9:30am-12pm  and 1:30-3pm 
    • Wednesday, August 25 9:30-12. 

    This will be a higher-level tryout for players who have played competitive volleyball in the past.

    JV Tryouts:

    • Tuesday, August 24 9:30am-12pm  and 1:30-3pm 
    • Wednesday, August 25 9:30-12

    We will be playing on 4-5 courts based on ability, but there will be times when varsity and JV will be mixed for some athletic assessments and activities.

     

    All four teams will be finalized by Wednesday, August 25 at noon.  Practices commence Thursday and continue through the beginning of school.  Some teams will have scrimmages beginning the following Monday.  Players are expected to be at all tryouts and pre-season practices, scrimmages, and tournaments.

     

    Tryouts consist of assessments of individual volleyball skills such as forearm passing, setting, hitting, serving, and blocking. Court play is also a very important consideration.


    The coaching staff also tests the athletes for general athleticism in speed, agility, endurance, and quickness through jump rope, shuttle runs, timed mile, sprints, etc.

    Players are also evaluated on their cooperation with other players and their ability to take direction from the coaching staff and improve.

    What is not considered at tryouts: participation on club teams, clinics, or performance on teams last year. Players are not guaranteed a spot on a team even if they played last year. 


    Preseason Practice

    The times depend on the team. Varsity A and B will practice twice a day during the summer pre-season, but JV teams practice once a day, either in the morning or late afternoon. The first scrimmages and games occur before school starts this year. For Varsity A only, there will be practice on Saturday, August 28. 


    Labor Day Tournament in Florida

    When there is not a hurricane or pandemic, varsity A and B travel to Orlando, FL for a national tournament over Labor Day weekend. We are able to go this year! Coach Nee will be in contact with returning varsity players for more information.

     

    Regular Season

    Volleyball is a commitment of about 2-2.5 hours per day, 6 days a week and a few Saturday tournaments.  It is our expectation that athletes will be present for all team tryouts, scrimmages, practices, games, and tournaments. 


    Competition

    Typically JV A games follow Varsity A games, which begin at 4:30. This year, JVB will follow Varsity B games in most cases.  The schedule is still under construction and will be available when teams are selected.


    For 2021, Varsity A and B will host a home tournament on Saturday, September 18 and JV A and B will host a Halloween-themed tournament on Saturday, October 23. JV players are expected to help at the varsity tournament and varsity players are expected to help at the JV tournament. Both tournaments will be smaller than years past, with a limited number of teams participating. If there is a concession stand allowed, parent volunteers will be needed.


    The regular season ends on Monday, October 25 for Varsity B, JVA, and JVB. 


    Varsity A is then eligible for postseason play, which we hope concludes with the state tournament in mid-November.

  • Regular Season (SUBJECT TO CHANGE)

    Volleyball is a commitment of about 2.5 hours per day, 6 days a week and a few Saturday tournaments.  Saturday morning practices are mandatory for varsity A.  It is our expectation that athletes will be present for all team tryouts, scrimmages, practices, games, and tournaments. 

     

    For 2020, Varsity A and B will host ONE home tournament on Saturday, October 24.  JV players are expected to help at the varsity tournament. Parent volunteers are also needed. Sign up sheets with be emailed once teams are established.  These are two of the biggest athletic events offered at the school and everyone's help is appreciated in making them successful.

     

    The regular season ends on Monday, October 26 for Varsity B, JVA, and JVB. 

    Varsity A is then eligible for post-season play, which we hope concludes with the state tournament in mid-November.
