SAJO has contracted with Matt Yegge with Altuis Sports Performance to provide a comprehensive conditioning program similar to the program he provides for the Pony Volleyball Team. We hired Matt because his program incorporates routines that emulate and enhance volleyball moves. This is a great opportunity for all players and is important they take it seriously. Although this is optional, we encourage all players to attend as many as possible.
Matt has taken the time to prepare some information explaining what his program entails. See below.
Players and Parents:
Other practices are still on unless you have been notified by your coach. If you are not able to attend, please notify your coach. Thank you!
SAJO typically cancels practices/events when the Stillwater Area School District closes due to weather. However, we ask that parents use their discretion as to the severity of the weather and safety of travel. Please communicate to your coaches if you will miss or be late for practice.
We will continue to monitor and post updates on the website if practices or games are cancelled.
