Hello All,

Exeter Big E LogoOn Wednesday August 31st, there will be a parents informational meeting followed by a boosters club meeting.  This will be a good time to come meet the coaches and other parents.  We will discuss the upcoming season, the program philosophy in general and answer any questions you may have about EHS volleyball.  Also, the Boosters meeting will cover this year’s fundraising activities and some general administrative needs for the season.

We will meet in the Morrisette room located just to the left of the cafeteria and directly across from the Library as you come through the main entrance of the school.  For any questions, please feel free to email Coach Mike.  For anyone that gets lost, the Varsity will be practicing in the Gym during that time.  Coach Kate will be happy to send you in the right direction!

We hope to see you all there!

Go Blue Hawks!

Hello Hawks,

Hawk BallWe couldn’t be more excited about our opening week of competition.  All the teams have worked hard and we are ready to take on Division I.  Good luck to everyone.

Remember that the Varsity match begins directly at the conclusion of the JV match so there are times when it might start early.  When there are triple headers it is our experience that things go a little slower.

  • Monday September 8th
    • Away at Goffstown (Triple Header)
    • Freshmen get dismissed early (2:05)
    • JV/Varsity Bus leaves at 3:00
    • Match times are 3:30, 4:30 & 6:00
  • Wednesday September 10th – Home Opener
    • Triple Header against BG
    • Match times are: 3:30, 5:00 & 6:15
  • Friday September 12th
    • Away at Concord
    • JV & Varsity Bus at 2:40
    • Match times are 4:00 & 5:30
  • Sunday September 14th 
    • Car Wash at the Exeter Sunoco Station
    • 10-12 Freshmen
    • 12-2 JV
    • 2-4 Varsity

A couple of other reminders:

  • Please remember to take all trash with you or deposit into appropriate receptacles
  • The Freshmen and JV will play 3 sets regardless of who wins the first two (mandated by NHIAA)
  • All Varsity matches are best of 5.
  • Warm-ups begin approximately 20 minutes before the match time under normal circumstances
  • Finally, check out our parent-fan tipsheet 2014!
