Firebird Athletics Summer Updates

Hello, Upper School Students!

I hope you are all having a great summer filled with activities and time to relax, too. At Palm Valley, we are already gearing up for the new school year, so please take some time to go over these important items.

The gym is now open to current Upper School students: Monday through Thursday from 8 AM - 11 AM now until August 2. If you'd like to come and get a workout in, please contact Coach Makkai to participate.

Firebirds! Your team practices for girls' volleyball, boys' volleyball, and cross country will begin Monday, August 7. Please e-mail Coach Makkai to confirm your participation on these teams so that our coaches may plan accordingly.

  • Girls' Volleyball Practice: Monday through Friday beginning August 7 from 3 PM - 5 PM.
  • Boys' Volleyball Practice: Monday through Friday beginning August 7 from 8 AM -10 AM.
  • Cross Country: If you are planning to participate this year, please e-mail Coach Makkai ASAP for details.

A reminder that your annual sports participation forms must be submitted to Ms. Tasha Romo in the Business Office for clearance before joining a team. You can access these forms at under the Athletics tab.

Lastly, we have exciting opportunities for current students interested in helping the Athletics program this year! From scorer table duties for basketball games to calling lines for volleyball, there are numerous ways you can help. You could even become a team manager and assist our Head Coaches! Please contact Coach Makkai for details.

Coach Makkai can be reached at for any of the items above.

Stay cool and GO FIREBIRDS!
