Volleyball season begins for College of the Rockies men’s and women’s teams today.
Both teams are on the road with back to back matches today and tomorrow at Capalino College in North Vancouver and then Saturday and Sunday at Douglas College in New Westminister.
Coach of the men’s squad Cisco Farrero says his players are young but are prepared to grow up and improve.
“We have 8 athletes that are fresh out of high school, and so post-secondary is a mans game and we need to grow up fast, but we have the right pieces to do that.”
The women’s team will be traveling alongside the men and will play at the same places.
Women’s coach John Swanson says they’re ready.
“We practiced quite a bit and had some exhibition matches but its never the same until you actually get into league competition, especially for our first year players.”
Action gets underway at 6:00 pm.
