On Saturday evening while most of our Starlings players were relaxing and getting ready for their matches on Sunday six of our players and all of our coaches were attending a high performance tryout at the Alliant Center. We were allowed to send only two girls per team to this tryout. Chris the 16s coach decided to send Sammi and Mandy, I sent Ashley and Alyssa from the 14s team and Megan sent Brooke and Rebecca from the 13s team.
All our girls worked really hard. The coaches had to work two as we were recruited to run most of the drills the girls were performing.
An unexpected treat was that they tryouts were evaluated by the USA Volleyball youth A1 team. This is a team of the top 16 and 17 year old players in the country. This gave our players the opportunity to see how some of the top players in the country practice and play.
