Steve Walker Sand Volleyball Camp: Sand volleyball is a great way to increase skills and become a stronger athlete. Registration is open now for the May camps: www.stevewalkersandvolleyballcamp.com
Physicals: All athletes are required to turn in physicals before volleyball tryouts, or your daughter won’t be able to try out for the CFHS team. There’s a packet of Athletic Forms that need to be turned in at the end of July into the Athletic Director’s office (House 2 desk) BEFORE tryouts. You can find the packet here: http://www.cfsd16.org/schools/foothillshigh/department_pages/athletics/
After tryouts, a program-wide parent/athlete meeting will be scheduled. Lots of important information will be shared, including the play schedule. Attendance is highly encouraged.
Practices: All practices are mandatory, even during school breaks. Individual game playtime is affected by missed practices. Due to AIA recruiting rules, no student shall wear “club” affiliated attire during practices. The volleyball program will provide two practice shirts. Each athlete needs to provide kneepads, black spandex and athletic or volleyball shoes. The school will provide a jersey top that will be turned in after each game to be laundered by the athletic department. There will also be fan/spirit wear for sale.
Payment: Athletes no longer need to pay the athletic fee before they try out. However, once your daughter is accepted onto the team, please go into
In-Touch and pay the participation fee ($150). The fees go towards coaching staff, transportation, and facilities. Athletes won’t be allowed to play until the program fee is paid: https://az-catalinafoothills.intouchreceipting.com/
Grades: All student athletes must maintain passing grades. This means athletes with a grade below a C- will be benched until their grades can be raised.
Carpool Release: If you want your daughter to drive with anyone to/from games outside of the school bus, you need to fill out a release that is located with the Athletic Director’s assistant in House 2 (front desk).

Snack Bar Helpers: Rotations are required as this is a fundraiser for the program. Tip: sign up for a shift when your daughter isn’t playing.
