We will be having our 1st Annual Fusion Night on Friday, July 27th at the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders' game. One lucky Fusion athlete will get the honor of throwing out the first pitch, 1 or more of our talented athletes are invited to sing our National Anthem and a couple others will have the opportunity to participate in a between-inning contest.
Coaches from each team are asked to select an athlete or 2 from their team (based on some criteria) and then those names will get thrown into a hat. One name will be drawn at random to throw out the first pitch!
If there are any athletes that are interested in singing our National Anthem, get yourselves together and practice and let us know!
And finally, 2 lucky Fusion athletes will be selected for the Bubble Ball Battle between innings!
So plan on coming out and making our 1st Annual Fusion Night a success!
1. Don't give your setter a hard time. Got blocked? Hit out? Shake it off and move on without placing blame.
2. Don't bring your cell phone into the gym. Coaches don’t want to see you texting when you should be concentrating on volleyball.
3. Don't form cliques. Be sure to rotate who your partner is for drills and invite new people into your group.
4. Don't ever quit on a ball, even if you know it’s unlikely that you’ll get to it. Even in pepper! Coaches want players who give their all on every ball.
5. Don't talk when the coach is talking. it’s disrespectful and sends a bad message to the coach.
6. Don't do anything halfway. Lazy footwork on free balls, not covering the hitter, walking to shag balls, etc. Give your all whenever you’re in the gym.
7. Don't pay attention to your parents on the sidelines. No conversations or gestures. Coaches want to focus on the player, not the parent.
8. Don't carry a mistake with you into the next play. A coach can tell by your body language if you’re not over being blocked on the previous point.
9. Don't be resistant to stepping into another position, even if it’s not the one you’re trying out for. Coaches want players who can adjust and are willing to be versatile if that’s what’s needed to make a drill work or help the team.
10. Don't give off a negative vibe. Look like you’re having fun playing the game. Smile, be upbeat, support your teammates, and enjoy yourself. Coaches like players who bring positive energy to the court.
Bonus: Don’t show up for a tryout wearing a t-shirt from a rival school or club!
