Middle School Volleyball Starts in August


Recommended Posts

With the TSSAA naming the First Day of Practice for High Schools and the date of the first match the 24th of August, Middle schools have now been give tghe leeway to organize their preseason, develop their regular season schedule and work out their preseason JV schedule and their regular season JV schedule. Middle School Volleyball has 20 matches available with no off season practices but no restrictions on summer practice. They can start their 2009-10 practices 4 weeks before their first match but have to have 3 daysof practice before the first playday or scrimmage.

Whether the GLJ, the resident Rules Geru of TSSAA rules, knows what "no restrictions on summer practice"means it would help.

There are many more Middle Schoolers playing this year and their should be some very hot matches in the districts this year all over the state. It is estimated that about twice as many are playing this year, many of which are playing club. Middle School playdays are normally organized during some time of preseason practice.

Now, it appears many Colleges/Universities are having team camps in June and July for Middle School age groups and likely everything works out except Coaches being able to attend those sessions which restrictions should be able to be seen if their are any.

    • Hampton and Alcoa, both won state titles before classifications, 1960/1967 respectively. I think Alcoa would be considered 1 A back then anyway

    • OR just played West and I was surprised they were the 4th seed in the region. Darn good team, They have everything, pure shooting, long, tall, athletic. Nothing not to like. It's the best combo length and athleticism I've seen since the mid 90s, Columbia Central had a team like that in the state.
    • I like to call people out on BS too. In this case if you don’t have evidence that Upperman tanked what you are saying is BS. See I like to stir the pot as much as anyone but I believe you leave kids alone. If you have evidence like who said what, when, where etc. name it. If not you are questioning the character of a group of kids. Please stop. If you got beef with adults talk about them. But saying a particular team tanked is talking about the kids that make up said team. 
    • Even though OR won by 15, that was a fantastic HS BB game. West is darn good. I'm not sure how we won by 15 looking back.     We got way ahead in the first quarter, West just wasn't ready and then they went into the zone press the rest of the game and they got it down to 6. Then OR punched back and spread it back out.    It was like a good heavy weight boxing match, both teams landed haymakers, OR landed 1 more.    West is probably the 2cd best team that played OR, Fulton was the best.
