Summer Kids Play Week-Volleyball

About 400 Area Kids In Summer League

Our 31st annual Summer Kids Play Week Series continues with a large number of area athletes taking part in one sport, in one place, this summer.

The Southern Swing summer volleyball league, in full swing throughout the summer at the Victoria College Gym. The first session of action ended in late June. There were five divisions, ranging in age from third grade up to high school varsity. Close to 400 volleyball players took part from Victoria, Calhoun, Tidehaven, Industrial, Edna and Yoakum.

Said Lady Flyer sophomore Kate Aguayo, “It’s really good preparation before the actual season. It’s like practice. Practice how you play”

Said Southern Swing Club Director Jamye Byrne, “It’s incredible. We really want to give these girls something so they can get the practice, get the reps. They can take it back to their school and really represent their school.”

Unlike some other summer leagues, the teams are made up of players from the same school. They play together in the summer and in the fall.

Said Industrial junior Abby Pfuhl, “That really helps a lot for the upcoming season. We get to play around with the new people we have coming in. That way we mesh for the season and it’s not as hard when two-a-days start.”

Said Warriors senior Michaela Wilborn, “It works very well. We do new plays together. We just communicate and have a good time before we actually start our season and have a good time. “

Session number two is underway and it winds up July 29.
