I hope everyone is doing well. I sure am bummed that we can’t all physically be together for strength and conditioning and open gym this summer (for now) but we do have other plans in store!
I attached the information that was shared by our Athletic Director, Ryan Johnson. This has information about how students who are signed up for Summer Strength and Conditioning can join the Rack Performance App, as well as the Volleyball VNN Team app.
The Rack Performance App will be utilized for all strength & conditioning purposes from our summer strength coaches. I expect for any student athlete that is signed up for summer strength & conditioning to be accountable and disciplined when it comes to completing these workouts from home. Establishing a routine is so important and we are putting a lot of our trust in our student athletes to keep working hard!
The VNN Volleyball Team App is still under construction as far as getting resources uploaded but should be ready to go by June 1st. The purpose of this app is to provide resources for our players that will include volleyball drills they can do at home, instruction on proper mechanics, as well as some other educational/team building/leadership topics. I am hoping to use the resource: The Art of Coaching Volleyball and am trying to gain access to their premium content this week so I can share it with the girls via the VNN Team App. Fingers crossed I can make it happen!
Zoom Meeting: HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS ONLY: I would like to hold a quick Zoom meeting for players this Thursday, the 28th at 3:00pm to touch base and go over some things with the girls. My Zoom link is: https://usd232.zoom.us/j/4316955394 The password is: Hothan
Summer Camp: As for now, we are not holding a summer camp. If I learn about potential opportunities for us to have a camp later in July or August, I will be sure to communicate that ASAP.
If anyone has any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out. I miss all these girls so much and was really looking forward to working with them in person this summer. I hope to still stay connected with them through our Team App and periodic Zoom meetings.
