BOARDMAN OH- Action on the volleyball court is fast approaching in the year of 2021. Just like football, volleyball practices are allowed to start on August 1st, and for most teams the season starts on the week after the 20th (Week 1 of football). Boardman’s volleyball program will look a lot different than it did in 2020. The Spartans are only returning 2 players on the varsity players from the year before. Head Coach Alyssa Birch has approached this summer with a different strategy and really is focusing on individual progress. The Spartans will immediately test their merit as they open the season Saturday August 21st at North Canton Hoover.
Coach Birch was gracious enough to take the time to call in to YSN’s Running Point this week to provide us with a preview of the 2021 volleyball season. She talked with Ron and Anthony about the game plan this summer, the growth of volleyball in the area, and much more. Spartan fans get set for volleyball season with this exclusive interview with coach Birch in Episode 1 of Coach/s Corner.
