Encinal Volleyball Goals and Values


Team First.  Play as a team and practice good sportsmanship.  Every member of the team is valued for their contributions to the program.


Respect.  Respect the ROOTS of the game.  Rules, Opponents, Officials, Team, and Self. 


Love the game.  Have fun learning, working hard, and putting forth your best effort.  Love the challenge that the game brings to you.


Practice and Play at a competitive level to prepare for the next level.  Always try your hardest in practice and in games.  Work to be a better player and person at every practice.


Balance academics with athletics.  Successes on the court and in the classroom go hand in hand.  A successful athlete can manage the commitment between sports and school work.



Encinal Varsity and JV Volleyball teams

We have both Varsity and Junior Varsity teams. JV is typically comprised of freshmen and sophomores while Varsity has mostly juniors and seniors, although freshmen and sophomores are also on the team.  Ultimately, the goal of the JV program is to lay the foundation for the game so that players can compete successfully at the Varsity level.  


The season starts at the beginning of the school year, with the JV and Varsity regular season ending the first week of November, with Varsity potential playing till the end of November in the post-season.  The team practices 2 hours every day after school during the season.
