HS volleyball Parents and Athletes. We got the schedule for tomorrow's tournament this afternoon as they had some teams drop out. It May change again after the coaches meeting in the morning but they should not put us as the 1st game - which starts at 9am. The games will be consecutive and will not follow a specific time - it is just when the game before is done they will start the next. If games change I will send out as soon as I have it. Hanover is Remote in location like Lone Star so please make sure you pack a lunch (they will have a concessions) and fill your tank. If you need directions please contact me at 970-466-0090. FYI The gym is split into two courts and there is not a lot of room for seating. I am attaching the schedule as of this afternoon. Also here is the address but do not be fooled by the city as it is NOT in Co. Springs. 17050 S Peyton Hwy, Colorado Springs, CO 80928 https://5il.co/yhfu

Lone Star will once again stream all events for the 21-22 school year! If you are interested in running an ad for the fall season please contact Jeremy Weathers.
BAND INSTRUMENTS! For all incoming 5th-8th grade students and parents. This year the entire 5th-8th will be participating in both band and chorus both semesters. This year's groups are rather large and we will have 45 students between all 4 grades. This will put a strain on the number of instruments the school can help to provide. This may cause your student to miss out on playing an instrument that they really want. Thankfully we have a great partner in Mega Music in Sterling that has instruments available for rent and rent to own. These are super affordable and come with insurance plans to make sure that if the instrument needs repaired it will be at little or no cost to you. Please consider going into Mega Music and renting an instrument. This is the surefire way to make sure your student gets a quality instrument that they WANT to play. This will also allow your student to make sure they have the ability to take an instrument home and practice as opposed to having to share an instrument with another student. At home practice is super important and with multiple competitions coming up this year, practice will be even more important. Thank you so much and if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me at the school or via my school email. email@example.com Mrs. Ely
REMINDER: All athletes must have physicals to participate in practices.
UPDATE: High school volleyball practice will begin on Tuesday the 10th at 9am. Please text coach Serrato at 970-580-7800 for any questions.
There will be no more open gym’s for boys the rest of the summer.
