Girls in fourth through 12th grade are invited to join the El Dorado Hills Community Services District’s fall volleyball program. “Our league gives girls who are new to the sport an alternative to ‘club’ or school teams,” said CSD Recreation Supervisor Frank Sianez. “It’s also less time demanding and a lower cost to parents while still teaching girls the fundamentals of volleyball so they can improve and move onto higher levels if they so choose.” Sianez said parents may be involved as spectators and serve as volunteer coaches. “Each season we hold a training clinic to help build new coaches’ confidence and knowledge of the sport,” he said. “This produces a two-fold benefit as it increases the caliber of the coaching (which benefits the girls) and give our league a good reputation for quality and fun. Both benefits have helped our league grow to where it is today in just three short years with over 200 participants.” El Dorado Hills mother Mary Tatusko enjoyed coaching her daughter and others last season. “It was so rewarding to see the collaborative play amongst the girls and the excitement in their eyes as they improved throughout the season,” she said. “As a longtime volleyball player, it was so rewarding to be able to coach and be a part of building their self confidence and skill level.” Volleyball practice is once a week with games played on Tuesdays or Thursdays in the CSD gym. The season runs Sept. 2 to Nov. 20 and the registration fee is $140 if paid before Aug. 8. Each child will receive a jersey and personalized award.
