Volleyball

Welcome to Polk Volleyball

            Welcome to Polk Middle School’s Volleyball Team. We look forward to an exciting, challenging season. To make a quality team we require dedication, cooperation, and teamwork from all involved in the program. We believe that athletes gain confidence and a love for the game through positive feedback from parents, coaches, and other players. We will focus on developing fundamental skills and teamwork. Skill level develops at different rates, but effort and having fun can always be achieved.

Practices

  •  Practices will be held  Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:15-4:45
  • Being absent from practice is not acceptable unless a written excuse is given to a coach. For each practice that is missed will result in sitting out a match.  

Uniforms

  • Athletes will be provided a uniform Jersey to wear to Volleyball games.
  • Athletes should wear solid black spandex shorts.
  • It is the responsibility of the student to take care of their uniform and return on the last Volleyball match. 

Matches

  • ALL matches begin at 4:30 for the B-team and 5:30 for A-Team.
  • It is expected that each team supports one another. This means we will sit as a team during home and away games. Walking around and or hanging out with friends or family during this time will not be permitted.
  •  Buses will be provided to and from each game.
  •  Students are responsible to BRING THEIR OWN SNACKS AND WATER FOR THE GAMES.
  • ALL PLAYERS must help with set-up!!! ALL PLAYERS WILL HELP TAKE DOWN EQUIPMENT AT THE END OF ALL HOME GAMES!!

Picking up Student Athletes

  • Students may be picked up from a game if a transportation form is filled out. There will be a Parent/Guardian Release to Transport Sign-out sheet at each game. 
  • Please pick up your child promptly after games and practices. There is no supervision during after school hours. Coaches will wait no more than 15 minutes after practice or meets.
  • IF AN ATHLETE IS NOT PICKED UP WITHIN 15 MINUTES AFTER PRACTICE THE SCHOOL POLICE MAY BE NOTIFIED. 
  • Athletes who are continuously picked up late will be asked to skip the following match or practice. 
  • Student athletes will be calling home, when they are on their way back from a game, so you are aware of their arrival.

Professionalism

  • The fact that you are a member of the Polk Middle School Volleyball Team automatically puts you in the spotlight. You are representing our school and community as team member. You are not only expected to follow the rules of Polk Middle School, but set a proper example at school and in the community
  • Be Respectful to coaches and players. Bickering and or negative behavior will not be tolerated.
  • Misbehavior during school that includes accountability cards and referrals will not be tolerated and treated the same as suspension.
  • Students are not allowed to participate while serving a school suspension (in or out of school). A suspended student shall be removed from all team related activities for the length of the suspension and may resume team participation upon the day the student is allowed to return to class.

​​​​​​​Grade Checks

  •  Once a player is on the team, they will be required to keep their grades up and will not be allowed to practice or participate in matches if they have a D or an F in any class.  If a student is not able to raise their grades after a two-week period of time, they will be removed from the team. Grade Checks will be done weekly.
