A couple of notes:

  • Here is our 2017 Blue Hawk Brochure with information about our program.
  • If you’re new to the high school you can park in the parking lot nearest the football field and enter the gym through the double blue doors.
  • BOTH conditioning sessions are essential to continued program success and injury prevention.
  • Bring Water – Summer Sessions are hot!
  • If you have not done so already, it’s a great idea to “subscribe” to this blog by entering your email to the right where it reads “Subscribe to Blue Hawk Volleyball via Email”.  This site is solely for Blue Hawk Volleyball.  You will not receive spam or be added to any mailing lists (other than this one).  You will only receive emails when we post something to this site (about 10-15 times during the season and maybe 3-4 times in the off season).

cropped-Blue-Hawk.jpgHello Hawk fans everywhere!

The match today is confirmed and will begin at 3:00 pm at Spaulding High School located at 130 Wakefield Street in Rochester.  Come support Blue Hawk Volleyball and let’s pack the stands!

Yesterday’s Post with details about the match (and any corrections) follows:


Hello Hawks!

cropped-Hawk-Ball.jpgWhat an exciting time!! After hosting the Broncos of Alvirne High School and winning in 3 straight sets, we are headed to Spaulding High School for the second round of the playoffs!!  We would like to invite ALL JV and FRESHMEN players who would like to attend to ride the bus with us on Saturday.

 

WE NEED AS MANY PEOPLE AS WE CAN GET TO PACK THE SPAULDING GYM WITH BLUE HAWKS!!!!

Here are a few things you need to know about tomorrow’s match:

  1. The game is currently scheduled for 3:00 PM.
    1. Because there is a Senior Social at EHS, Spaulding has graciously agreed to move the match time, HOWEVER,
      1. If the Spaulding football game is rained out this evening, they will be forced to move the match time back to 6:00 PM
        1. We are hopeful that will not happen!
  2. Parents and Players will have to pay admission to the NHIAA (unless they ride the bus with us!).
    1. My recollection is that it is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students but I could be wrong so plan accordingly.

That’s it for now…  Wish us luck!

Go Hawks!  

Coach Mike
