    Volleyball tryouts (Aug 13th and 14th) will be held at Eagle Middle School at 1 - 2:30 PM. We know this is a change in time but becaue we have had problems with our gyms floors and will not be able to use them the first couple practices. Eagle Middle has been gracious to let us use there gyms. Sorry for the inconvience.
    Now a letter from the head coach.
    I hope everyone is excited as I am about a new school, STAR MIDDLE!!  Fall sports are fastly approaching and we are getting ready for YOU (volleyball). We are excited!
    Volleyball is for any girl in the 7th and 8th grades. We will have 7th and 8th grade teams and depending on numbers we will have B and C teams also.Tryouts are right around the corner and the Idaho activity Association policy says that each participant must have 10 practices before their first game. Throughout the season, athletes are expected to attend every practice. If they miss a practice, a note from the parent/guardian or a doctor is required. We encourage the athletes to give the coaches a note before their scheduled practices is missed. Students must be in attendance at school the entire school day in order to participate in extracurricular activities after school.  Coaches will check attendance everyday before practices and games.
    Eligibility: Students participating in school activities/Athletics must maintain passing grades each of their classes to be eligible to participate in games. Grade checks will be done on a weekly basis by the athletic director. 
    Paperwork and Money: All paperwork must be summitted to the bookkeeper or coach before the student athlete can participate in the practice. All money is encouraged to be turned in at the same time. Student athletes will not be able to participate in games until all money and paperwork is turned in. To find paperwork and the fees please look at the Coach's contact link to the left.
    Tryouts will be held August 13th and 14th from 1 -2:30 pm AT EAGLE MIDDLE SCHOOL to determine team placement.
    Practice before school starts: August 15th through the 21st  from 9:30 to 11 a.m. AT STAR MIDDLE SCHOOL UNLESS OTHERWISE POSTED BY THE COACH.
