2020 Summer Volleyball Information

2020 EVHS Summer Activities

Volleyball Camps


We are currently reviewing the new COVID-19 recommendations for resuming indoor sports and will be making final decisions about youth camps this week.

We will most likely still hold the Advanced Camp in July, for girls entering grades 9-12, but the exact format will likely change as we get closer and move into later phases of the re-initiation of indoor sports.  We will take guidance from the MSHSL, State of Minnesota, and District 196 decisions regarding our sport.

Summer Strength and Conditioning Offerings now available!

We recommend that ALL of our returning or incoming volleyball players participate in summer Super Group – the Eastview Athletics speed/strength/conditioning program.  It is a great way to prepare mentally and physically for the demands of the fall season and to come in ready to do your best!  There will be 3 different options listed below – virtual, socially distanced, in-person training at Eastview, and training at the Training Haus facility in Eagan.  We would prefer to see everyone sign up for option #2, but making sure to do at least one of them is very important.

Option #1 Continue a FREE Virtual Option with Weekly posting of workouts, once a week Zoom meeting with description of the workouts etc.  This will be a continuation of what started in early May with workout plans and video demonstrations put together by Coach Rainey, Coach Swanson and Coach Habeck.  This option will also include a once a week Zoom Meeting to check-in and go over workouts for the next week.  Workouts can be completed at home on your own with little to no equipment required.  If interested in this option, email coach Dehnel or kurt.habeck@district196.org with any questions.

Option #2-THIS IS THE PREFERRED OPTION! We will be starting an outdoor only (at least until we get clearance to use the weightroom which we do not anticipate happening before the end of July) option that will be completed in pods of 10 or less with max of 4 pods per football field 3 days a week option at the cost of $180 and is open to students entering grades 9-12 in the Fall of 2020.  Registration is now open at https://district196.feepay.com/  In order to ensure maximum safety in this setting all workouts will be done in consistent pods of 10 or less (same pods for the entire summer) and will follow all Safety Guidelines from the District 196 Pandemic Team including practicing safe physical distancing, all coaches will wear masks etc.  Workouts will involve mostly weight bearing exercises, but when equipment is used it will be wiped down between every use.  During registration athletes will select the time slots that work for them and groups will be formed accordingly.  Days will be Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays and time slots will be between 7:15-11.  Each session will be 75 minutes maximum in length.  Parents/Guardians will be expected to do a short “pre-screening” prior to sending their athlete each day.  No locker room or restroom facilities will be available and because we will be outdoors all sessions are weather dependent.  These workouts will be run by our Training Haus Performance Coach Shannon Rainey along with several members of the Eastview coaching staff.  If interested in this option participants MUST register on Fee Pay prior to Thursday, June 11th so pods can be set-up and times can be communicated. Contact troy.swanson@district196.org or shannonrainey21@gmail.com with any questions.

Option #3 For those seeking an opportunity that will allow for full access to weightroom equipment to be utilized our partners at the Training Haus do have small group seasonal opportunities at their Eagan location.  The cost for their summer session (3 x week for 8 weeks) is $425.  If interested in this option please contact the Training Haus at info@traininghaus.com or call 952-456-7650

Middle School Option-For incoming 7th and 8th Graders in Fall of 2020 there will be a two day a week option run by Eastview Coaches through Community Ed. Registration is now open at https://district196.ce.eleyo.com/ They will meet two days a week in similar fashion to the 9-12 Super Group.  They will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00-12:15 and the cost is $99. See the attached flyer for more details.  Contact troy.swanson@district196.org with any questions.
