We have a spring season volleyball tournament this coming weekend. Friday, March 28th and Saturday, March 29th at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
We've been practicing nonstop since the beginning of the semester, working really hard in the weight room and we are ready for this tournament. We can't wait to finally see all our hard work pay off. The off-season is really difficult.
While it is call the OFF season it should really be called "harder than in season". During the spring we have very little matches and tournaments to go to so we spend all our time working out in the gym and the weight room preparing ourselves for the upcoming season.
In the gym our seniors (who are not required to come practice anymore) often show up at the gym as extra bodies and pound balls at us. Our team is composed of 12 players, 10 of which are healthy and on the court at every practice so when the seniors do come to practice we are able to scrimmage and play 6-on-6 drills which are really beneficial.
Because we haven't played a real match in so long the whole team (coaches and all) are ready for this up coming tournament, we just want to play!
