Kent Classic to be September 20th

The annual Kent Classic Invitational Volleyball Tournament will be September 20th at Kentlake and Kentwood High Schools. With the completion of the new gym at Kentlake the field will expand to 30 teams. There are still a few spots available for this popular tournament featuring teams from across the Northwest (and last year Norway). There has been interest from teams as far away as Arizona this year. Tournament details will be announced soon.

Summer Camps

There will be two Falcon Volleyball Camps this summer, both July 14th to 17th.

The Falcon Middle School Camp for Girls and Boys going into Grades 6 to 9, will be Monday to Wednesday 9 to 3 and Thursday 9 to Noon in the Main Gym at Kentlake.

The Falcon Elementary Camp for Girls and Boys going into Grades 3 to 5, will also be Monday to Wednesday 9 to 3 and Thursday 9 to Noon but in the Auxiliary and New Gyms at Kentlake.

Both camps will be $80 for all four days and $20 for any single day. Players that register in advance will receive a camp t-shirt and water bottle. There will be a $10 Late Fee for registering on or after the first day of camp. Online registration will be available shortly via

There will be no camp for high school players this summer. Information on other summer activities will be posted soon.

New Schedule Out - First Practice Will Be August 25th!

The new partial schedule is out and first practice for Volleyball will be August 25th, not August 18th as I guessed earlier. Sorry about that. The first three or four days will be tryouts following immediately by regular practice. The first possible day of playing is listed as Friday, September 5th, but that would require practicing on the two Saturdays or one Saturday and Labor Day.

Since there are now nine teams in SPSL North, the double-round robin schedule of the last two years is no more. Instead the Kent schools play each other twice (once in pre-season and once that counts for the league standings) and the other schools once. There is also a non-league match against Puyallup.

Senior Night will be on October 21st against Auburn Riverside.
