Students who are interested in trying out for volleyball should report to the gym outfitted in appropriate clothing: Athletic shirt, athletic shorts, and gym shoes. Kneepads are NOT REQUIRED for tryouts but students who already own a pair of kneepads should wear them. Students are also encouraged to bring their own water bottle so time at the drinking fountains can be minimized.
