OPEN GYMS at Woodinville HS, Start April 2019

Open gyms start in April 2019 and will occur every Tuesday. These sessions are a great way to get some touches on the ball and are for any and all WHS students or current 8th graders who will be attending WHS for the 2019-2020 school year. Per WIAA rules, there will be NO COACHING at these open gyms and the sessions are COMPLETELY OPTIONAL. Coaches will simply be there to oversee net set-up/take-down and supervise students who choose to attend.

WHS Volleyball TRYOUTS will be August 26-28, 2019!

Please do not schedule any summer plans during or after these August dates if your daughter plans on trying out for the WHS volleyball team. TRYOUTS ARE MANDATORY for participation in the program. Family vacation, summer jobs, dentist appointments, etc. during these times are NOT VALID EXCUSES for missing tryouts*, especially since you and your daughter are being informed far in advance of this event. Each and every athlete deserves the opportunity to tryout at the same time and be fairly and equally evaluated by a coaching staff to determine who has earned the privilege to play WHS Falcon volleyball. WHS tryouts are a competitive process and no one is guaranteed a spot in the program until they have completed tryouts and been assigned to a team.

*Note: Illness, injury, mandatory summer school, or transfers to WHS will be evaluated on a case–by-case basis.

If you and/or your parent would like to receive WHS volleyball announcements, updates, or reminders regarding these future events, please send an email to Head Coach Andrea Roelen, at aroelen@nsd.org with the following information:
