Apalachee coach puts on middle school volleyball

POSTED: February 22, 2014 12:00 p.m.

The Apalachee Volleycats finished their most successful season in program history in 2013, but no team lasts forever. In the interest of replenishing and reloading a talented team, Coach Joey Alfonso is working to organize a Middle School Spring Volleyball League in 2014.

The league begins in March with practices and clinics aimed at teaching young women the game of volleyball before league play would begin in April and last through May.

Ladies would meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from March 3 to May 7, with the registration deadline quickly coming up this Friday, Feb. 28.

The spring volleyball league is open to all Barrow County middle school girls currently in grades six through eight and costs $125, not just Apalachee feeder schools. For the registration fee, participants will receive a game ball and jersey for all matches.

All participants will need a completed physical before they can participate, along with insurance, athletic clothing and a pair of kneepads. According to Alfonso, kneepads can cost anywhere from $15 to $50 depending on the brand.

As an added bonus, participants will be instructed by current Apalachee volleyball coaches and players, giving young women a chance to learn from officials and athletes involved with a program that boasts two straight area titles, four consecutive playoff seasons and some of the best volleyball players from Area 8-AAAAA.

For the last two years running, the Area 8-AAAAA Player of the Year has been an Apalachee Volleycat.

In addition, five Volleycats were named to the All-Area team in 2013.

"We hope you will give your daughter the opportunity to learn this new, to some, and exciting game," Alfonso announced through a press release.
