    “There are only two groups of people whose job is to win games,” says Thompson. “Coaches and players. Parents have a much more important job: to guide their child’s character development.”

    Do you have any advice to offer parents? Getting your kids involved in team sports is a gift you give them for life. Volleyball is a game that instills confidence, commitment, teamwork, strategic thinking and so much more. Once they’re in sports, parents can never be too positive when supporting them. After a great game or a rough match, players are looking for positivity and understanding and support. Nothing beats a hug from mom and dad.

    Kids don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

    News and Information

    15 Red Wins Gold at Husky Sweet 16

    01/25/2015, 3:00pm EST
    By Staff

    Downstates 15 red team made it two in a row by winning the first ever Husky Sweet 16 tournament in Hartford last weekend. Winning all 11 matches they played. Facing a tough Aviator team in the finals, Downstate dropped the first set (the only set they dropped all weekend) only to bounce back easily winning set two and holding on to take the gold by winning set three 15-13.

    16 Red did a fantastic job overcoming adversity at Winterfest. The team not only had a slow start with inconsisten play on Saturday, but also had to contend with illness throughout the weekend. The cold/chills bug hit them hard, with at least 5 players getting sick or feeling ill. They all showed a strength and willingness to put their teammates first, by taking care of their symptoms in order to be ready to support the team in our time of need.
     
    16 Red won Bronze Finals, 25-13, 25-21, adding to our collection of medals for the year.  Next, we'll work on our consistency, so that we will have a better chance of a good Day 1... Capitol Hill is just over the horizon.

    16 Red Wins New Year's Classic

    01/21/2015, 2:00pm EST
    By Staff

    Wow, first place!  What a great way to kick off the season for 16 Red!  

    We demonstrated teamwork and perseverance throughout the entire day, which definitely helped us battle through the 3rd Set of a few of our closer matches that we ultimately won. The New Year's Classic also showed us where our weak spots are and what we can do to keep improving.  Before our first away tournament in Hartford, Connecticut our team needs to work on covering, being ready on defense, communicating, and running everywhere.

    Overall, a great start for 16 Red. If we keep building off of what we've been learning in practice, I know that we will continue to keep doing well!
