Great Juniors Season, Bears!
Eight Byron Volleyball Club teams wrapped up their season in the last few weeks. All of the players and coaches did such a great job! I had the opportunity to practice with a few teams and watch some of the tournament action. Here's what I saw:
Girls having fun! This is perhaps the most important goal for our club. It was awesome to see our players enjoy their experiences in practices and games.
Supportive parents, grandparents, and coaches. The Club season involves many forms of commitment, and that was on display from our volleyball families throughout the season.
Girls working hard to improve. Volleyball, at every level, is a game where so many mistakes happen. I was able to see some resilient play from our girls. They were willing to learn from mistakes and losses, which is a huge part of improvement. Sometimes it's tough to look ahead to the next point when you "mess up", but I saw many of our athletes do just that. Girls are STRONG.
Teams winning games! This is often a result of all the things mentioned above, and it was really cool to see our teams progress through their tournament brackets.
I owe a huge "thank you" to coaches for all they did during the season. Missy Barth, our Co-Director, put in so much work towards this Juniors season. Her behind-the-scenes efforts made so much of the volleyball fun possible for our girls. Thank you!
