Cara and some of her 6th grade classmates are playing summer league volleyball every Wednesday in June. The league is for 6th-8th grade students. The volleyball coaches for Battle Creek and Lutheran High Northeast formed the league and there are 12 teams playing.
The first and third Wednesdays were played at Lutheran High Northeast and the second and fourth Wednesdays are played in Battle Creek. The first week Cara and her team of 6th graders were intimidated their first game when they had to play a team of 7th graders, but they hung with them for a while before totally falling apart.
The league is supposed to be fun and is a way to develop skills and game experience. Unfortunately, last week Cara did not play her best because she had broken her little toe in two spots the day before. But, the toe is healing nicely and she should be able to play much better this week. It has been a great volleyball experience for the girls and a great summer activity.
