- Some team practices will begin when each team member is registered USAV at hoavb.org, and when the Coach is available. Be sure to choose Springfield Juniors as your team when you register.
- All players on the team must have their Medical Release form (pdf) turned in to Sandi. Forms can be mailed (address at the bottom of this page) or faxed (753-4285).
Please don't wait until the last minute, as Sandi needs to make copies and needs the forms at home to do that. Thank you.

CONGRATULATIONS to these SJVC players who have committed to play college volleyball!
Karch Kiraly (pronounced kuh-RYE) is one of the best Men's Volleyball Players ever, three time Olympic Gold Medalist, current coach of the U.S. Women's National Team. Here is some very good advice from him: "Just good. Lots of players think they need to play perfectly to help accomplish the team's goals...I'd say focus on just being good, play after play after play. Trying to be perfect often leads to poorer and less consistent performance. We see this most when a team makes the final, then tries to play at a level higher than what got them to the championship match in the first place - and their level suffers instead."
