Greetings AHS Volleyball Parents and Players!
We hope all of you are safe and healthy! I wanted to send you an email about the upcoming AHS Volleyball Open Gyms beginning Monday October 5th. We are excited to be able to get back in the gym and see our players and coaches! We have now entered LPS Phase 3 guidelines for getting back into the gym. We will have the use of both the Main Gym and the Aux Gym. We are allowed 25 players in each gym not including coaches. Following LPS guidelines, please note that these Open Gyms are not required. The Open Gyms are voluntary only and no player will be penalized for not attending these Open Gyms. We are simply offering our players an opportunity to get into the gym and get some touches on the volleyball. With that being said, we also know that many of our AHS players are involved in Club Programs. We understand that you have signed a contract and pay to play club volleyball. We know that attendance at these club practices is required by your club and you are committed to their contract and to attend those practices. Attending club and coming to AHS VB practices is a lot of volleyball for sure. So if you are tired from club and do not feel like attending our practices, we understand. For those not playing club or another sport, we hope to see you often. We would love to see you whenever we can so we have created this schedule. To work with you on this we have set up two practices per week. Those practices will occur on every Monday and every Tuesday of each week. So for this week, the schedule would be as follows:
Monday October 5th: 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Tuesday October 6th: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
The following week we would have practice on Monday October 12th and Tuesday October 13th. Etc.
We will follow this schedule for every week on Mondays and Tuesdays. It is important that you know that at times an open gym could be cancelled due to another in season team needing the gym due to weather factors and other extenuating circumstances that could come up. We ask that you please be flexible and understanding with us as we move forward during this time. I am sure you understand where we are coming from on this.
Before you can attend an open gym, you must fill out the attached "Phase 3 LPS Modified Phase 3 Off-Season High School Athletics and Activities" form. There are two places to sign on this form. Page 3 and Page 5 must be filled out by the Parent and the Player in full and brought to the gym prior to you participating in open gym. We cannot allow a player to participate unless we have in our possession both forms. This form can also be found on our webpage at https://www.ahswarriors.org/sport/volleyball . Just enlarge the form and print it from the webpage if you choose that route.
Masks are required. You must change prior to practice. Locker rooms will not be available for changing out. We suggest you bring a water bottle as well as a hand towel and hand sanitizer. We will have hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and volleyball sanitizer as well. We will be setting the nets up early if you want to show up 15 minutes prior to help. All players will get a temperature check when you arrive at the gym. PLEASE READ ALL 8 GUIDELINES ON PAGE 4. This includes symptoms beside temperature check. If you have any of these symptoms please do not attend open gym until they are cleared up.
