Today starts what looks to be a pretty intense four day sequence.
This evening I’m working my second High Performance try-out in Dallas. Before that, though, I ‘m meeting up with a Volleyball Coaching Wizard for lunch (she’s also working the try-out). That’s supposed to be about a 2 hour and 15 minute drive. Last week, though, it was more like 3 hours – each way.
After the try-out, which will end around 8pm, I have to drive back to campus as I have to be there for Friday practice (6:30am). I will be running it because the head coach will be in Dallas with her club team playing in the Lone Star qualifier.
After practice I’ll be headed back to Big D once more, and staying until Sunday. I’ll be making my first appearance on the recruiting circuit in Midwestern State University colors at Lone Star. I’ve been to other qualifiers in the past, but this will be my first time at this particular one.
I’ll try to get some decent pictures and/or video to give those of you who haven’t seen anything like this an idea of how truly big these events are. There’s over 100 courts, mostly running 4-team pools in two waves.
