Volleyball Tryouts for Rudd for Fall of 2017  will be on February 15 and 16th, 2017.  These tryouts are for any 6th or 7th grade girl interested in SUMMER practice and playdates in July, and August-October 1st practices and regular season.  You will need a valid sports physical to try out.  I will let you know when varsity tryouts are for upcoming Freshmen as soon as I am informed.

Congratulations to our girls for winning 3rd place in our Jefferson County Tournament.  We have certainly come a long way since August!!!  I'm so proud of how well everyone dug down and overcame injury and personal goals to become such a focused team.  

Tryouts for the 2017 team are usually in April, but to help with fundraising and summer scheduling, I will try to have them at the end of January 2017.  Valid sports physical signed by a doctor, AHSAA release form, and concussion awareness form are required....not to mention good school behavior and passing grades!!!

You will need to take the STAR Sportsmanship course, which is an online interactive video that teaches about sportsmanship.  Go to, in the middle right of the page, be sure the tab for "Quick Links" is clicked........THEN click "Star Sportsmanship" on the lower right hand side.  You will log in with our code, which is "star00428" and click OK.  You will need to register your name...please use Capital letters at the beginning of your proper name as "shell dawkins" on a certificate looks like I am in Kindergarten.  Click on "Advanced Middle School" and begin the video...if you need to leave before it is complete, then it will pick up where you left off the next time you log in using your registered name.  The process takes anywhere from 45-75 minutes.  There is now a new format (2015) so if you see "High School" then you will need to click the link at the top of the tab that says "All Other Grades."

The $300 spirit pack is due by the last day of school in May.  The first deposit of $75 is due the end of April.  We will have a car wash or bag groceries to help with tournament entry fees and equipment.  We will sell cases of Coke products and Candles to help raise money for your spirit packs as well.  I will let you know when I have dates for car washes and /or bagging groceries.  Make sure there is a driver's license and phone number on each check.

Away games are parent responsibility for transportation. We can car pool, caravan, etc. to our destination where some of you will need to meet us due to work times. We will be collecting player information so we can communicate better on transportation and such. We will leave right after school and either eat a sack lunch on the way, or stop somewhere for a light meal. We never know who will have a decently stocked concession stand for volleyball. Due to the need for so many parents to drive, please provide a copy of your license and proof of insurance. Let me know if you have any further questions. Also, for home games, we will need to provide line judges, scorekeepers, and Libero trackers, so girls will need to do duties during our games and while other teams are playing. I will have duties on a rotating schedule. Matches consist of the best 2/3 games, and game days are usually trimatches with us and two other teams. For most county games, we will play a 7/8 combined team, but I try to schedule as many days as possible with our separate “A” and “B” teams playing so that we can get more experience on the court. Let me know if you have any further questions.


Mrs. Dawkins(

Ms. Hoffman (

Our volleyball spirit packs will be around $300, and we will sell cases of Coke products for $24/case and Red Letter Candles for $15 and have car washes to help with personal and tournament costs, respectively. You can take $5 off of your spirit pack for each candle or Case of Coke sold.
