Girls Volleyball is a CHSAA 5A competitive/tryout Fall sport. Lakewood’s volleyball team has won the Jeffco League several times in the past few years and has competed in the regional and state play-offs.
At LHS, volleyball is a try-out / competitive sport, meaning athletes try-out for a spot on one of the teams (Varsity, Junior Varsity, Level 3 and Level 4). Team members are selected based on skill, attitude, experience and scholastic eligibility. Team levels are not determined by the athlete’s grade level, and members are required to try-out again, each year. Freshman can be selected for the Varsity Team.
Athletes are eligible to receive a “letter” in this sport at the varsity level after accomplishing certain criteria and at the head coach’s discretion.
During the season, players are expected to participate in required practices every day after school and games, which are typically twice a week and some Saturdays.
Players are expected to keep their grades up for eligibility. CHSAA rules require schools to run weekly eligibility reports. Anyone with twp “F-failing” class grades is ineligible to play in games the following week, though they are expected to practice. Anyone with an “F-Fail” final class grade may be subject to eligibility restrictions.
