Volleyball - JV Girls
Sub-varsity teams are more developmental in nature and playing on a team offers not only a chance to enjoy the sport, but also a valuable participatory experience for each athlete. This applies to all team members from standouts to substitutes who play a supporting role. In keeping with the Thayer philosophy that athletics are an integral part of a student’s curriculum, students should plan their participation with the help of their advisors – this discussion will help everyone gain a better understanding of each child’s overall school program. All sub-varsity participants are expected to receive fairly equal playing time over the course of the entire season. All team information is available via www.thayer.org/TeamSchedules.
Students at Thayer are privileged to be a part of the Independent School League (ISL). This collection of 16 schools shares the highest ideals for school sports and competes in almost every sport Thayer offers. In addition to the ISL opponents, we schedule contests against other members of the New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC).
