Royals Volleyball Club to conduct evaluations

The Lady Royals Volleyball Club is conducting evaluations on Dec. 3 inside the Eastern Hancock High School gymnasium.

The club is open to all area volleyball players who love volleyball, want to extend their play and are interested in working hard and improving their skills.

There will be two evaluation sessions to measure player skills and assist in team placements.

The first evaluation session will be conducted from 1 to 3 p.m. for those players competing on the 10-, 12- and 14-under teams. The evaluation for those interested in joining the 15-, 16- and 17-under teams will be held from 3 to 5 p.m.

Players will be placed based on age, skill level, experience, position as well as IHSAA limitations (no more than three players from the same high school on the same team).
