     News as of 8/5, stay safe and stay hopeful - Coach Thomas

    2020 Season
    The deadine for submitting physicals and updating PRIVIT has been moved from 8/3 to 8/14.  That is all I know at this time but more details may be coming after the next board meeting.  As of 8/5 there is still no 'first step' for middle school sports. 
    On 7/7 the State College School Board passed a preliminary step for restarting sports in the school district.  This first step only applies to High School sports, PFMS and MNMS are NOT part of this step.  For HS athletes, there are still many restrictions.  For instance:
    • Optional workouts, not practices, are only allowed (that means individual training, not team training)
    • All workouts must be approved by the Athletic Office
    • All workouts must be held outdoors, still not allowed in gyms
    • Workouts are limited to 25
    • Athletes must submit a 'self screening' to participate on a given day
    • Athletes must bring their own water, none will be available on the fields
    • A restroom will be available but locker rooms are closed
    • Coaches must wear masks, and athetes are required to wear masks at certain times
    • No visitors/spectators are allowed at the workouts
    • etc

    These are challenging times and as things permit I am willing to do what it takes to get our PFMS voleyball players back on the court in a safe manner.  I will keep you posted as I learn more.  And last, there still is NO DECISION on whether there even will be fall school sports.

    NOTE: these are SCASD rules and don't apply to club sports



    2019 Season
    PFMS Volleyball will be represented by 27 amazing young women and aspiring athletes.  We have 11 returning players, 2 new 8th graders and 14 7th graders ready to compete this fall.  We wish the best for the young ladies that we were not able to take this season.  In other years many of these players would have made the team.  The sport is popular and we just don't have the ability to take everyone.  The pre-season has gone great.  It is a very inteligent group that works hard.  We're all looking forward to another fun and exciting season!
    During the summer of 2019 the PFMS community lost Ashley Stout in a tragic accident.  Ashley was friends with many of the players on the volleyball team.  On Monday 9/23 the teams from MNMS and PFMS showed their love for Ashley and support for her family.  We will never forget her.
