Spring sports began tryouts on Feb. 26, but not ever student going out to practice for boys’ volleyball, girls’ soccer, girls’ lacrosse, and baseball are trying to earn a spot on the team. Some are actually just looking for a spot on the bench.

Managing sports is a way to earn community service hours, and being a sports manager is a huge commitment that many students want to take on. Two volleyball managers talked about why they decided to become a manager this season.

“I played on the freshman girls’ team this school year and I grew to have amazing friendships with my managers during the season,” freshman Lauren Banks said. “I can meet new people and have fun doing it.”

The managing process is a huge commitment. They must go to all the practices, games, and tournaments, whether they’re at home or away.

“I’m ready to bring out our cheers from the fall season and cheer the guys on,” freshman Natali Piña said. “Some of my teammates from the girls’ season are also managing, which makes this job even more exciting.”

The girls enjoy managing in a sport they participate in themselves. They get to help out with their knowledge on the sport and give feedbacks. Teams are like family and the managers are just as much a part of the team as the players and the coaches.

If interested in becoming a manager for a team next year, talk to the athletic department for an application.
