Lightning News · Middle School Winter 1 Sports Update 10.16.20


Volleyball

Volleyball is on as scheduled and will follow the same MHSAA protocols regarding facial coverings, social distancing, etc. as the high school season did. 7th Grade tryouts will be held in the Rolland Warner gym on Monday, October 26th, Wednesday, October 28th and Thursday, October 29th from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. 8th Grade tryouts will be held in the Zemmer gym on Friday, October 23rd, Monday, October 26th and Wednesday, October 28th 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

All student athletes must be cleared through the athletic office in order to tryout. Pay to participate fees do not have to be paid until a student athlete makes the teams.  The 7th Grade Volleyball schedule can be found online at https://lapeerlightning.com/teams/2942941/girls/volleyball/7th%20grade/schedule

Also, due to MHSAA capacity restrictions, the same “two spectator vouchers per participant” system that was used for indoor middle school sports during the Fall season will be utilized for all volleyball games, home and away. This is subject to change if the MHSAA changes their current capacity restrictions.

A sign-up sheet is available in the main office for all student athletes interested in trying out for volleyball this year.

 

Wrestling

Per the Greater Flint Middle School League, the middle school wrestling season has been postponed indefinitely until more direction and guidance is provided from the MHSAA. Athlete and coach safety is the foremost concern in this decision. We will update you as soon as more information/a starting date for practices is available.

GO BOLTS!!!
