My name is Anne Branstad and this will be my 3rd year coaching at Central High School. For the last two years I coached the Junior Varsity team and served as assistant Varsity coach. I am honored and excited to be the new head coach at Central and am looking forward to growing the program even more. I believe in creating a team culture that values hard work, integrity, community, dedication, and academic achievement.
I am excited to hear that your incoming 9th grader is interested in joining the Central High School Volleyball team. Central has a strong volleyball tradition and I am looking forward to another fun and successful season.
Our volleyball program runs from Monday, August 17th to the end of October. There will also be open gyms throughout the summer and Captain’s Practices held before the tryouts.
Currently during this time of social distancing, I am leading group workouts 2-3 times per week via Google Meet. If you are interested in joining these 20-30 minute workouts, please email me and I will be sure to include you on the calendar invite.
In order for your daughter to participate on the first day of practice (August 17), she needs to have all MSHSL forms completed and turned in, as well as an Athletic Physical and Sports Fee paid to Central’s Athletic Office by 3pm on Friday August 14..
Please note that this should be done prior to the first day of tryouts as there is a 24-hour processing period for ALL athletes before they are allowed to participate.
