We are a team “One For All and All for One”. In years past players have left for home before all matches are done leaving some of the players high and dry. The team will now stay until the conclusion of all matches.
In case of rain we, the coaches, will make every effort to go outside. So come to practice. If it is canceled we will send you home. If we can practice inside we will try but we cannot accommodate great numbers in the gym. There is a safety issue. This issue will very day to day depending on weather conditions.
We are getting paid to put the best – if possible – winning team on the court for each match. If this is not your goal then you are in the wrong place.
We see in this group some possibility, maybe a lot possibility, of being a very fine team to represent Lake City High School in all. But we are definitely behind most of the teams we have to compete against in hitting and playing. So we must have the following in order to catch up.
a. You need to be at practice
b. 100 % effort at all practices
c. Do it our way with a POSITIVE ATTITUDE
d. A group of girls that get along and are “one for all and all for one”
Again if these don’t fit into your personality you are in the wrong place.
