LSJH Volleyball, KEEP SPANDEX!
Principal John Green, of Lakeside Jr High School in Clay County, Florida wants to change the rules for dress code next season. He 'feels' that we de-moralize our girls by letting them wear spandex to play volleyball. In a high-energy sport like volleyball, where the actions have names like "attack," "spike" and "joust," ensuring that players are ready to execute aggressive moves is essential. Players are required to jump, stretch and dive during a game, and making sure clothing does not hinder any of these processes is key. Wearing spandex allows volleyball players to concentrate solely on the game instead of worrying about adjusting clothing, hindrances in movement and a more complete range of motion. (as noted on livestrong.com) No other school in the county is making this change, Principal Green is bringing his personal beliefs into a matter where there is no room. Please help us get our point across that Spandex IS the volleyball uniform and he should not change that!
