Sand Springs Athletics

Volleyball Team Prepares for Fall Season

 

The Sandite athletic teams work hard all year long, practicing for their awaited season. Here you can find the upcoming calendar season full of games for all teams. 

The Sand Springs Volleyball team will start their regular season games before Sandites have their first day of school. With many games on the schedule, the Sandite volleyball team looks forward to the season with a new coach. Skylar Jackson recently joined the Sand Springs volleyball team as their head coach. Skylar’s husband, Derek Jackson, was the coach of the Sand Springs volleyball team until December 2021. Skylar soon took over as head coach and has held tryouts and a summer camp for the Sandites, prior to the season beginning at the end of July. Previously, Skylar was an assistant coach at Broken Arrow High School and coaches for Club Virago. 

Skylar started playing volleyball in 6th grade and continued to play and love the sport into her high school and college years, ultimately leading her to become a coach.

“I played four years of varsity volleyball and went on to play at SNU,” said Skylar. “I had many coaches who poured into my life and I wanted to be able to do the same for others. I know quite a few of the girls already, so I look forward to getting to know the rest of the girls and building lifelong relationships with them. We are excited to get better and do some big things this year.”

Junior high and high school sports are an integral part of students’ lives in their teen years. It provides them with a team, a community, and skills that will stick with them throughout their lives. Sand Springs is encouraged to support the local school’s sports teams, cheering them on as they learn life lessons and as their athletic skills improve. Showing up for the teams shows that what they are investing their time in is important and they are supported by the town. It is key for the community to join together and they cheer on the athletes’ hard work, persistence, and diligence. Skylar is excited to see how the community will come together to support the athletic teams this year.

Show up, come to games, and be a part of supporting our kids in person,” said Skylar. “Not much feels better than looking into the stands and seeing those faces of the people who support you. Of course, another way to support is to participate in our fundraisers. They help us do things for our girls so that money doesn’t stand in the way of opportunity.”
