MSCR hosts a coed-open rec-level group at Cherokee Middle School (at 4301 Cherokee Dr) 7-9pm Thursday eves. The group supervisor David Nelson welcomes new players and they can stop in and join us as a "guest" for the evening at no charge to see if this level fits their interests.
Although recreational, I find it is a higher level of play than beginner and we try to set up most plays; however, we understand when mistakes happen. To clarify, when I say higher level of play, most of us know how to play and it isn't always one hits back and forth but I would not consider this high intermediate/power. David, the session leader, encourages "intentional" play without worry about messing up. We believe it is better to try for the pass or set than to just pop it over the net, and try to have the second hit be the setter position. If you're looking to develop your skills or learn the game, this could be the group for you.
If you do come, come through the doors by the parking lot, go down the steps to the lower level, turn right down the hallway, and you should find the gym on the right a little ways down the hallway. We tend to start a little after 7. If you like it and want to play regularly, the fee is $29.75 for MSCR residents (+50% for non-residents) for Thursdays 10/31 to 12/19.
