COLLEGIATE SIGNINGS

SARA HALL & ANDREA GARCIA MOVING ONTO THE NEXT LEVEL.

Sara Hall has attended Braden River HS since her Sophomore year. She was a 3-year varsity starter and 2-year team captain. She also led the Braden River Beach Volleyball team into the State Semi-Finals her first two years playing in the number one seed. She is one of the top beach players in the state of Florida and will be attending Tulane University in 2021 on an athletic scholarship.

Andrea Garcia moved to Bradenton, FL from Puerto Rico the summer before her Freshman year. Andrea was a 4-year varsity starter for the Pirates as well as anchoring the number 2-seed for four years on the beach team. Along with Sara she was a leader on the court with her passion and effort during matches. Andrea recently signed to play at Fayetteville State University in North Carolina as a Defensive Specialist.

We cannot thank both girls enough for the effort, dedication, and love they brought to Braden River Volleyball. We are so proud of these two and know that they will have bright futures playing at the next level!

2020 Tryouts

Pirates, We have been approved to start practices on August 24th, 2020. We will be following all district mandates in terms of safety for Covid-19. Our goal is to operate safely to limit or eliminate exposure for our athletes while participating.

Tryouts will take place in the gym on August 24th, 2020 from 5pm-8pm. My goal is to select our Varsity team on Day 1. If I need to bring players back for a final look on day 2 I will. We will do a 2nd day for non-Varsity players after day 1 to finalize those teams. Everyone will begin in the same tryout. We will work in groups to limit our numbers on the court at one time. Any Freshman-Juniors that do not make Varsity are encouraged to come back on day 2 to tryout for the other team.

PAPERWORK MUST BE SCANNED AND EMAILED TO PIRATEVBALL@GMAIL.COM (Bring $50 payment to Coach at Tryouts)

Paperwork Packet

3. Make sure to sign all of the pages.  If there is a missing signature, you will have to redo the PDF that you send.

4. Scan and email (no text accepted) of the paperwork PDF.   – THIS WILL NEED TO BE DONE IN ONE PDF, NOT MULTIPLE.  – You can use a normal scanner to complete this.
  – If you do not have access to a scanner you can use an iphone or ipad. The “notes app” is super easy to “scan” multiple pages in.. I did this a lot for school and you essentially take a photo of it within the notes app.
