Girls Volleyball Positions Clinic is June 10
salt city volleyball logo We are bringing some of the area’s top college coaches to Susquehanna Valley for a one day clinic to conduct small-group, position specific instruction. The coaches will work with position groups for a 3-and-a-half-hour session, and players will work with every coach during each session. Players are be able to attend multiple sessions during the one day clinic in order to work on multiple positions and skills. This is a perfect opportunity for focused instruction with experienced college coaches to help players develop. See THIS FLYER for all the information.
Capital Project work advisory
Phase I work on the voter-approved Capital Project is underway on the secondary campus, as crews begin the process of replacing the grass athletic field with the artificial surface multi-use Sabers stadium. Please be aware that truck traffic will be accessing the campus and stadium area via the southeast tennis court entrance (Cherry Drive) AND Maple Avenue. The district is taking necessary steps to minimize disruption, but the field demolition work is likely to kick up some dust for awhile. We appreciate your patience and look forward to a grand opening at our new modern athletic facility in the not-too-distant future! You can follow along with the work by viewing construction images on our PHOTO GALLERIES page.
