Practice Location - 4 SEPTEMBER

Location of courts at Athey Fields Complex

Good evening, volleyball parents!

This note is to bring your attention to a handful of items:

  1. Tomorrow, 4 September, Coach Shayla will be holding the practice as scheduled on the WYSC website at the outdoor Athey Fields Complex from 5:30-6:30 PM.  This practice will be an opportunity for the girls to meet each other, learn some things about their teammates, and play a couple fun team-building games to kick off the season.  Please have your players dress in athletic clothes, including tennis shoes or sneakers, and bring plenty of water.  The address for the outdoor facility is 760 Waterloo Road, Warrenton, VA 20186, and the courts are at the far western end of the soccer fields. If you search for the WARF on Google Maps, the courts show up as blue at the west end of the fields.  Please plan to have you players there 10 minutes early to ensure everyone is at the courts to start practice at 5:30 PM.  
  2. I will be out of town for the rest of the week and will not be able to attend, but will be at all remaining practices and games starting with the first indoor practice next Wednesday 11 September at Warrenton Middle School 5:30-6:30PM.  The address for the facility is 244 Waterloo St, Warrenton, VA 20186.
  3. The answer to the question you may not yet know to ask: yes, kneepads are a good idea for your player.  This link provides you several different options to consider: https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/search/SearchDisplay?categoryId=&storeId=15108&catalogId=12301&langId=-1&sType=SimpleSearch&resultCatEntryType=2&showResultsPage=true&fromPage=Search&searchSource=Q&pageView=&beginIndex=0&DSGsearchType=Keyword&pageSize=48&searchTerm=volleyball%20knee%20pads&advsearch=true&SearchType=Keyword&pageNumber=0&filterFacets=2101%3AYouth  I have no affiliation with any sporting goods manufacturer or equipment store, but the Mizuno youth core T10 pads generally work pretty well at a decent price point. 
  4. If you have any questions at all about the schedule for the season, or know of any practices/games your players may not be able to attend, please let Coach Shayla and me know via email and/or text message.  Our contact info is on the WYSC team page, but for convenience, my email is and my cell phone is 703-618-1289.  Please include your and your player’s name in the text message and email as applicable.

The coaching staff is looking forward to an exciting and educational season for us all.  I look forward to meeting you next week, and Coach Shayla will see you tomorrow (Wednesday).
