Hey there volleyball fans! Coach Waddington here with the latest and greatest from the world of ASU Volleyball.
We have been back in the gym training for about two weeks now with our individual sessions and we are seeing steady improvement from all of our players. They are all getting stronger and really working hard to refine their skills for the upcoming season. I have been impressed with their attitude in the weight room and with their open mindedness in the gym.
We held our open tryouts this past weekend and hosted about 35 potential players. Our main focus was to look at the setters and middle blockers. Out of the 35, we asked about eight to stay and play a little bit with our team. The whole day ran pretty smooth and I hope the participants walked away impressed with what we are doing here at Angelo State.
Speaking of recruiting, I will be hitting the road the next three weekends looking for some future 'Belles. This weekend I am headed to Dallas for the VB Rags Invitational hosted by TAV. Next weekend I will be in Las Vegas, NV, for the 2010 Vegas Invitational and the PrepVolleyball player showcase beforehand. Finally, the weekend of the 19th, I am headed back to Dallas for the Texas Image Showcase and then the Tour of Texas-Dallas Stop. Lots of travel, lots of players to see. The spring is always an exciting time of year. Recruiting is key to the success of any athletic program. Great players mean great seasons. I hope to see you out there!
Until next time, keep taking it to Spike Town!!
