https://volleyballeast.com/apr_6_pools

Here is our schedule. We play at 9:00am on Saturday at Conestoga valley high school. Be there by 8:15am please.

Side note, I will not be there Saturday. I have a wedding that I cannot miss. I sure wish they had sent a save the date. So parents please help Frankie out as much as possible. Thank you.

Also it looks like they combined the club level and open level so that there are 19 teams.

See you all Sunday. Let's go stars.

sunday schedule

Here's the schedule. If I'm reading it correctly we play at 10. Try to be there by 9 ish so we can get somewhat of a good spot.

Let's go stars. Ready to play. Feel like it's been forever since we have had a full team.

tomorrow and nationals

Just a reminder that we play at 9:30 tomorrow morning. Please be in the gym by 9:00.

Nationals:

After receiving a few emails from parents saying no to nationals, we have decided that we will not be going to nationals.

I'm very sad about this. It's not only a fun trip, but it's an amazing experience for the athletes to learn and get looked at by college coaches.

Good news is we will be able to get our entry fee back. And we are still working on the coaches rooms that were already reserved.

Because of this, upward stars owes you all one more tournament. So next week we need to look at what available tournaments are left for us to register for and decide which we all want to play in together.

I'm excited for tomorrow. See you all in the morning.

All For Him,
Coach Nikki

March 2 tourney

Good evening everyone,

If I am reading our schedule correctly, we play at 9:30. So everyone should aim to be in the gym a little before 9:00am. Below is the link to our schedule and the address where we are playing. It’s a little over 2 hours away.

kutztown and nationals

https://volleyballeast.com/ku_2_24_19_schedule

Here is the schedule for Sunday. We play a weird schedule again. Our first match is at 9:15 so be in the gym by 8:45 please. Then we play right after that match then there is a break.

Nationals

Hello everyone,

We need to start talking about nationals. I talked to the girls and they were all for it, however it’s up to you parents to give me a yes commitment. I am attaching a link to the event.

The dates are June 17-20. 16th is check in day. So arriving on the 16th would be perfect seeing as how we will be playing on the 17th. The cost of the tournament is covered for the athletes.

You will be in charge of getting down there, room and board.

I will need yes commitments as soon as possible seeing as how we have registered for the event based on what the team voted.

The invitation to be on the 18U national team is first being offered to the team. After which we will offer to other ladies if nationals does not work for you.

Email me back. So I can get the ball rolling.

Saturday’s schedule

https://volleyballeast.com/vc_1_19_19

This is the link to Saturday's schedule. I was hoping to attach a picture but this app won't allow it.

We work first then play. So shoot for 8:00am arrival. That should give us enough time to settle in and get to the court to work.

If there is any weather issues, I will notify you all ASAP. But I'm sure they will wait till the last possible second to decide anything.

I'm excited to see what the team can do. And I'm excited to meet all of the parents I have not met yet. Let's go stars!!!

service project

Good morning. I'm so sorry this is so last minute.

Every year upward likes to do a service project to help those in need. Our projects in the past have been working at food kitchens or filling bottles full of money.

SAVE THE DATE!! Monday, Jan 21st (MLK holiday) in order to assist the homeless in our area. Our goal is to assemble 200 ‘Manna Bags’ filled with necessities that a person experiencing homelessness does not have access to, like food, hygiene items. These bags are distributed by the Newark Empowerment Center who constantly assist the homeless or can be left in your car and passed out when you encounter those in need. We need help from each team to collect the items we will use on the 21st to create these bags! All teams will meet in the gym at Bible Fellowship at 10:00am – 12:00pm to assemble the Manna Bags for the homeless. Each team will be responsible for bringing $20 (about $2 per player) to reimburse the cost of the drawstring bags and their team’s minimum contribution from the list below. Many of these items can be found at dollar stores or sold in multi-packs. Check with your dentist or local grocer, they may be willing to donate items when they know it’s for a good cause. Extra donations in addition to your team’s minimum are welcome and will be used to fill extra bags or donated to resources that can assist the homeless.

18U-Nikki Drinks (juice or water) At least 200 bottles.

At least 200 individual items per our team. Please consider helping with this project and bring these items and money by Thursday the 17th at practice. Or with you on Monday the 21st.

Please come on Monday to help fill the bags and hang out with your teams.

Thanks and see you all Friday night.

Coach Nikki and Coach Frankie
