Volleyball has three competitive teams that compete in a 10 game season with 2 tournaments. Each team will compete on the same days against the same opponents except for tournaments. The volleyball season typically begins after the students report for the first day of school, usually the first Monday after the start of school. The season lasts through the third week of October. Since volleyball has so many restrictions on player game participation and substitutions, there is a limited number of available roster spots for the teams. This may lead to the coaches conducting try-outs based on the number of girls who choose to participate.
The team practices at the Smithville Middle School Gym. Most practices begin immediately after school ends around 2:45 pm and usually end by 5:00 pm. All home games are played at the SMS Gym.
All players are required to have a MSHSAA sanctioned physical before they are allowed to participate. In addition, all players are required to have 14 full practices before they are allowed to compete in a MSHSAA sanctioned event. Players are expected to provide their own tennis shoes. All participants need to fulfill the academic eligibility requirements set forth by MSHSAA and the Smithville School District.
