7th and 8th grade volleyball tryouts are scheduled for Monday, January 11th and Tuesday, January 12th, 2021.
Tryout Time: 2:30-4:00PM
Tryouts are open to 7th and 8th graders only. In order to participate in tryouts, you must be signed up on PlanetHS, pay the sports fee, and have a current physical on file at CMS.
In order to be selected for either the 7th grade or 8th grade team, an athlete must be in attendance for at least one day of tryouts. If you miss both days of tryouts, you will start out practicing with the 7/8 mixed team. After attending a practice, the coaches, in conjunction with the athletic director, may then make the decision to move a player onto the 7th or 8th grade team. 7th graders may not play on the 8th grade team.
Athletes of all ability levels are welcome and encouraged to join the volleyball teams at CMS. Volleyball tryouts can be an anxious time for middle school students. If an individual doesn't want the stress of tryouts, but still would like to play as part of the CMS team, they may begin practicing with the 7/8 mixed team on Wednesday, January 13th, 2021.
At the conclusion of tryouts, the 7th grade and 8th grade coaches will make selections for their individual teams. Anyone not selected for the 7th/8th team is on the 7th/8th mixed team. All athletes will know before leaving tryouts which team they have been selected for. The teams are as follows:
7th/8th mixed team
7th grade team
8th grade team
