It’s time for 2016 Mustang Sand Volleyball!
From: Gary Sagunsky (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Mustang Girls Sand Volleyball 2016 season is just one month away. The first allowed practice is February 20th. We should be having tryouts the following week.
High School Sand Volleyball is run by the Sand Volleyball Association of San Diego. We are hoping to have the sport sanctioned by the CIF within the next year or two. Until then the program is run basically the same as the college NCAA Sand program and CIF eligibility requirements. Please visit the Sand Volleyball Association link is here: www.sandvba.net
This year we will have 29 High Schools participating, up from 24 last year. There will be six league divisions with two leagues in the open “Power” division. San Dieguito is assigned to the North “Power” league this year with La Costa Canyon, Torrey Pines, and Cathedral. LCC has won the open championship the last three years with Torrey runner up last year.
Practice will again take place at the La Costa Canyon sand volleyball courts. The courts have recently been refurbished and redirected facing north south. No more sun in the eyes while playing. There is now more room for warm ups and spectators during matches. Practice will be Monday and Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:30. Matches will be at Ponto Beach each Thursday after school.
We will have more information on signup registration and tryouts coming soon.

SDA Takes 2nd in Division II
Congratulations to the team on a very successful inaugural year for Sand Volleyball at SDA. We are anticipating that we will officially be part of CIF going into the 2017 season. Everyone’s support this year is greatly appreciated. See you at the beach!
The San Diego High School Sand Volleyball championships were held on Saturday May 16 at South Mission. SDA was seeded first in division II but lost to Bishops in the finals to finish 2nd. (LCC beat Torrey in the division I finals). Congratulations to the entire team for a fantastic inaugural season, and in particular to Karina and Megan who lost just one match all year. Here is a recap of the championships in the Union-Tribune: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2015/may/16/la-costa-canyon-sand-volleyball-south-mission/.

Season Kickoff Meeting
Mr. Conn will hold an informational meeting during lunch on Tuesday, January 20th in the conference room in the “B” building. The purpose of the meeting is to gauge the interest level, and to give interested players information about when the season will kick off as well as the season schedule. Please get the word out!

From Athletic Director Justin Conn:
The 2015 Mustang Girls Beach Volleyball season is about to get started. The season will begin in February and the first contest is scheduled for March 5th. Practices will take place at LCC on Mondays and Wednesdays. There will be six varsity players. We may be able to field a JV team of six players as well. Sometime after January 15 we’ll know the list of schools participating.
Important: We are looking for a volunteer adult to help out with the beach program. This volunteer does NOT need to be an expert in sand volleyball, just someone who wants to help move the program forward and satisfy the requirements for an adult presence at practices and matches. This volunteer will need to be cleared through the SDA Foundation to work with students. Any questions about clearance can be answered by Mr. Conn.
