A Note from Coach McDonnell:

 “While we wish we had the resources to take all players, volleyball is very well attended at Exeter and unfortunately there may be cuts.  We ask all parents to prepare their children for that possibility and let them know that giving their best effort should never be looked upon as failure.  We like to remind players that many a great player was initially cut from their high school team (Michael Jordan comes to mind).  Try hard and regret nothing!

Often times we have players come out for volleyball because they have been encouraged that it is, or they perceive it to be, the “easiest” of the fall sports.  It is my experience that those players are shocked at what is required of them when they arrive.  Tryouts will be rigorous and volleyball is a demanding sport that requires physicality, stamina and a particular set of motor skills, .  We strongly recommend players come to tryouts fit and having practiced over the summer to reduce the risk of injury and improve their chances of a successful tryout.  Good luck to all!”
