It appears we have 44 high school players split up between 5 teams. We have 30 junior high players split up onto 4 teams, which will be ability grouped. We also have 24 elementary players split into 3 teams. That is 104 girls playing volleyball at Carroll. We had 72 our first year at Carroll.
As educators, we are committed to providing a quality learning experience at an affordable price. We will not form a team without two quality coaches. We limit the size of our teams to guanantee a 1:5 coach to player ratio. Generally our teams have no more than ten players in an effort to insure a player's role. Having said that, attendance at practice is very important.
Our high school teams practice on Sundays. While we have reservations with this day, it works best in order to gain access to the gyms and allows the girls to remain active in their home community activities.
Lastly, we will ability group our teams. It is to the benefit of every player that practices and schedules allow them to compete at an appropriate level.
