Summer League

Kentlake will have two teams in the Summer Volleyball League at Kentwood this year. Games will be on Monday and Wednesday starting June 23rd. Each night each team will be in a pool of three teams. They will play twice and referee once during the night. Play will start at 6pm and continue to about 9pm. However, all players should arrive by 5:30pm so they can warm up prior to play.

We realize that not everyone can attend every time, but we encourage players to participate as much as possible. If they do commit to playing on any given night then it is very important that they show up and play.

All players that can attend on the 23rd should tell Coach Behrens or Coach Foster by the 22nd.

Seattle U Tournament

Kentlake will be sending one team to the Seattle University Tournament on July 8th to 10th. We will have a minimum of 8 matches over the 3 days. The format will be 2 days of pool play followed by a double elimination bracket. Play will start at 9:00am each day and end when the pool or bracket is finished each day.

More details will follow as we get closer to the Tournament.

Updates from CWU Tournament

You can follow the Kentlake teams via twitter next week. Updates will be sent out via twitter on how the teams do. It may not be real-time, but we should have all scores and some highlights from both teams as soon as possible. You can have twitter messages delivered to your phone via text messages, or log on and check.

CWU Tournament

Remember the team is doing the Central Washington University Team Tournament next Monday and Tuesday. The players need to let Coach Behrens know by practice tomorrow (Thursday) whether they can attend. They also need to turn in $27 for the room by then.

We are staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Ellensburg. They are holding rooms for parents at the same rate as the team ($99 +tax). They are holding rooms at this rate until Friday (6/18). Call 509-962-9400 to make a reservation. Rooms are under Kentlake High School Volleyball Parents.

Fundraiser This Weekend

Please come out and support the team at the Nolte State Park Triathlon on Saturday. We need everyone that can come to arrive at or before 6AM (yes, it's early) to help run the triathlon. It is fairly easy work, but we need a lot of bodies. We also need 10 people (that's the maximum we get paid for) to help take everything down after the triathlon is over. That should last until about 3pm.

The park is located near Cumberland, east of Black Diamond and Northeast of Enumclaw. Click for map.

CWU Tournament

Kentlake will be sending two teams to the tournament/team camp at Central Washington University the week after school is out, June 21 & 22. Coach Behrens needs to know which players are able to attend. Please let her know at or before Thursday’s practice if you will be available for those two days.

  1. We will be staying at Holiday Inn Express the night of the 21st. We are in the process of finalizing rooms for Monday night. The cost per player for the hotel is $27—hotel provides continental breakfast.
  2. Parents, please let Coach Behrens know if you plan on attending the tournament AND if you are available to drive girls over—if that is the case, we have rooms reserved for chaperones. Please let Coach Behrens know if you would like to chaperone.
VERY IMPORTANT: All players will need to complete the CWU Health/Emergency Information Form for CWU SPORT CAMPS. It is page 4 of the Camp Brochure which can be downloaded from the CWU web site. The completed form should be given to the coaches by the end of practice on Thursday, June 17th.

Tuesday, June 8, 2010


Summer Practice continues this week with practices from 4:30 to 6:30, Tuesday to Thursday, in the Main Gym. Tuesday is the first day that incoming Freshmen can practice with the team.

Nolte Park Triathlon

We still need volunteers to help with the Nolte Park Triathlon on Saturday, June 19th. Please contact Coach Behrens to volunteer.

Free Sports Physicals

Don't forget the free Sports Physicals tomorrow at KM from 8AM to Noon. Even though it is at KM, all high school players from any school in need of a physical (all incoming freshmen and anyone else that has not had one in the last two years) can attend this session.

The physicians at Valley Medical Center do this as a community service. So you are getting a "real doc".

There will another session in August at Kentlake, but don't put it off until then. Please go ahead and get the physical done now so you don't have to worry about it later.
