If you happened to miss anything, you will be notified so it can be updated. We currently do not have the ability to receive payment for fees online.

Happy Summer Udall Middle School Eagle Ladies, We just wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to consider going out for middle school volleyball in August. Mrs. Rochelle Dickson will be the new head coach and Mrs. Julie Wilson will be the new assistant coach. We are both SUPER EXCITED to be involved with you and to have a fun, exciting, and successful season! Because of the current Covid-19 restrictions and the uncertainty of summer workouts, middle school volleyball will not be scheduled into the summer weight program should one be developed. BUT we highly encourage you to do some of the following exercises at home over the summer to stay in shape. This is the biggest thing that will help you be ready to go when practices begin in August. Home Volleyball Workouts Warm up for your volleyball workout by jogging for 15-20 minutes Then stretch your: Arms Shoulders Hamstrings Hip flexors Ankles (all the muscles you use most during volleyball). Also the following drill exercises will help: Leg Drills Lunges (Sets/Reps: 3x20) Wall sits (3 sets. First set is 30 seconds, then 45 seconds, then 60 seconds) Jumping Jacks (3x50) Quick Feet Jump Rope Set Normal pace jump, 30 seconds Right foot only, 30 seconds Left foot only, 30 seconds Double right, double left, 30 seconds Fast as you can go, 30 seconds Repeat 3 times with a 1-minute rest between sets. Vary your training with this 5-minute jump rope speed workout. Abdomen Workout Sit-Ups (3x30) Plank (3 sets. First set is 30 seconds, then 45 seconds, then 60 seconds) Arm Strength Lateral Dumbbell Raise (3x25) NOT HEAVY just need enough weight for resistance These are great exercises to do on a regular basis, just to stay in shape. But doing them will also put you in great shape to begin volleyball season. We look forward to seeing you all at enrollment in August. We will have information at enrollment about a middle school volleyball practice start date and allow you to sign-up then. Have a great summer and GO EAGLES!! Coach Dickson and Coach Wilson
