Volleyball - Extra-curricular
Beginning October 19th our school will be running an extra-curricular in-house volleyball program for grades 6-9. This intramural style league will be modeled after what other junior high schools are doing in our division and does not involve playing other schools. It will focus on skill development and informal co-ed games within these groups of students.
All sessions will run after school until 5 pm. Grades 8-9 will occur on Mondays beginning October 19 and ending on November 16. Grade 7 will occur on Thursdays starting October 22 and finishing on November 19. Grade 6 will occur on Tuesdays from October 20 to November 17. These sessions are open to any St. Francis students whether they have previously played competitive volleyball or not. Students do not need to attend all sessions nor is there any cost involved.
There will be mixing of students in cohorts different from the school day. However, COVID-19 precautions will include sanitizing of volleyballs before and after practice and keeping the change rooms closed. As such, we would ask your child to change in one of the student washrooms. Proper footwear and gym strip (no jeans) are all that is required
