2012 Volleyball First Practice

The University of Minnesota volleyball program kicked off the 2012 season today, at the Sports Pavilion as the Golden Gophers held its first practice. The team reported on Tuesday for team meetings and on Wednesday were busy in the gym.

The first practice day consisted of an early morning with a 7 a.m. physical testing with strength coach Sarah Wiley. Following breakfast, the team gathered together for the first practice at 10 a.m. As coaches Laura Bush, Chris Tamas and volunteer coach Dave Ganser looked on, the team worked on technique and ball control.

Following a lunch, the team will add another practice at 3:30, followed by dinner and a team meeting. The Gophers will continue two-a-days also on Thursday and Friday, while Saturday will be photo day and relaxation.

The Gophers open the season at the James Madison Tournament, August 25th in Harrisonburg, Va. Minnesota will play twice that day as it takes on host James Madison (11:30 a.m. CT) and Appalachian State (4:30 p.m. CT). Minnesota's first home matches will be August 31-Sept. 1 as hosts Albany, Long Island and Miami (OH).
