faq s


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.
