Great practice today, although we were missing some key people. Tomorrow's our first home game. Try to be at the gym by 4:15 to get everything set up. Let's do a good job of hosting the Pacific Collegiate Prep team.

Live from Kinshasa

Practice today after school. Try to be there. We're shut out of the gym some this week so you shouldn't miss today's practice. Derek is in charge.
Good job against the girls last week. I understand it was a very impressive win.

Update: GAME ON! We'll play at 6:30, Seaside high School. The varsity plays first at 5, so you may want to watch some of their game. Try to arrive before 6.
Wear a red t-shirt. No collar. If we need #'s, we'll tape some on.

Update: no update yet. I spoke with the Seaside coach tonight. He's planning on us coming over and playing but his AD needs to speak with our AD first. He said he'd let us know no later than 10 am. So plan on getting a text message sometime tomorrow, or check back here.
If there's a game: no practice. No game: practice.
See you either way.

Nice day at the beach Friday, although a little breezy. We'll try to do it again.
We have practice this week, and (it looks like) a game on Tuesday. Tuesday's game is tentatively scheduled for 6 pm at Seaside High against their JV team. Their varsity plays Salinas High that night and Salinas does not currently field a JV squad. So I'm trying to get our team on the schedule for the Salinas dates with the other teams in the league. We'll see.
One other bit of news: I'm going out of town from Thursday until the 28th, so I'll miss all of the week of the 23rd. We can organize some practices, but we're shut out of the gym at least two, maybe three days that week due to some event, I can't remember what. Anyway, we'll figure something out. Just keep looking here for updates on practices and games.

GREAT JOB today!!! Nice hustle from everyone. Check out the pics. Thanks to Jill for the photog work.
We had big play at the net, very good passing, good setting and, of course, very consistent serving. I'm going to have to stick with the zero tolerance serving policy. It seems to work.
So carmel boys' volleyball at carmel high school is off to a great start. And you are a part of it!

good practice today. Here's what we decided: we'll wear red t-shirts tomorrow. We'll enter both tournaments in Watsonville in April and figure out how to pay for it. We'll try to get some b-ball uniforms for future matches. We'll get over to the MHS lower gym as fast as we can tomorrow.
That's about it.

Big welcome to new member Dane. Great practice yesterday, lots of fun. What we learned was that the key to the game is control. So let's work on control. A lot. 
Practice today after school. Coach Dan will be in charge. As you practice, figure out how to get better; and at the same time, figure out how to make your teammate better.
Check out the pics:

Big welcome to new member Jacob, a senior. 
I just scheduled a game with Monterey for next week, so we'll have to learn how to pass serve in short order.  If we work hard, we have the potential to be a very good team. 
Let's plan on practicing Friday and Monday leading up to the game.
See you tomorrow.
