Practice Schedule

Once school starts, Freshman will practice during 3rd block and after school until 5/5:30p on Monday, Wed, Thursday

Class Schedule

Freshman will be double blocked in volleyball both A and B days

Since athletics is during 3rd block players will change and eat after practice/study hall

Game Schedule

Freshman will play every Tuesday and Friday and in two tournaments (9/4-Argyle and 9/11-Irving)

If we have 2 freshman teams then we will tentatively play the A team at the JV time and the B team at the Varsity time (please see calendar and schedule for exact times)

Most games will be played in the second gym


Can I play soccer, basketball, softball, CC, golf, track and play volleyball?

Yes – playing more than one sport at the freshman level is very common at DHS.

Can I be involved in cheer or band and play volleyball

Possibly – very difficult for most students to juggle multiple extra-curricular activities and fulfill requirements of the 4x4

Can I be in IB classes and be a volleyball player?


Do I have to play club volleyball in order to make the team?

Not necessarily – More playing is a definite advantage at the high school level. All of my returning Varsity played club volleyball this spring

Do freshman get cut during try-outs?

Rarely, but possibly.
