What does it mean to be a Lady Eagle at Etowah??

When an upcoming 9th – 12th grade athlete decides to try out for the Etowah Volleyball team, at first they are somewhat shy, but they go in with their excitement, enthusiasm and skills to do their best, attributing much of their success up to this point largely to the support of their family.

Once on a team, they quickly come to appreciate their new team team mates.  But the team is much more than the players on the court.  The Coaches, parents, and even siblings make up a huge part of the team family.

This is why we say that when you become a Lady Eagle, your family comes too.  Each family dedicates time and effort to the team to help the season run smoothly and assure that each player has their best possible chance of success.

Our Board Members are parents too… Yes, in addition to supporting their own daughter on the team, they spend countless hours for 8 months before the season begins making sure that the season will go off without a hitch.  Once teams have formed, several coordinators take the lead on each team assuring that each player has what they need to succeed, but each family member is important, both to the player and to the team.

In short, the volleyball season would not happen without you.  You are the family of the team and your volunteer efforts play a part of each and every season and each and every player.
