Though neither team is in season during the winter, Davis High boys and girls volleyball coach Julie Crawford has events planned for all of her Blue Devil netters.
For prospective DHS boys team members, conditioning and open gym time starts in January leading up to tryouts, which begin Feb. 4.
Players must have physical exams and concussion screening completed prior to tryouts.
For girls in grades eight through 12 interested in playing Devil volleyball, an offseason training program begins on Jan. 8 at the Fitness Garage, 1403 Fifth St., Suite G.
The program meets Tuesday and Thursdays and players can either come from 3 to 4 p.m. or 4 to 5 p.m.

The Davis Community Track and Field Club is launching a new program that targets junior high school students interested in the sport.
Beginning Jan. 7, students in seventh and eighth grades are invited to participate in a six-week conditioning program that will prepare them for a healthy and successful spring season.
“We decided to offer this program because so many parents came to us and said they needed something to help prepare their kids for participating safely in spring sports,” said former Davis High and UC Davis runner Drew Peterson, who coaches the program. “Too many kids get injured or discouraged because they leap into a competitive season without conditioning.”
Athletes will do conditioning to develop strength and agility, learn to safely warm up and warm down and be supported to participate in two optional all-comer meets. For more information and to register, contact coach Petersen at 530-210-7049.
