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.
