Katie is the current Upper School Girls Volleyball Coach and one of the Upper School Mathematics teachers. She played competitive club throughout high school, but passed on the opportunity to play college volleyball to focus on academics. When offered the chance to coach at Roycemore, she couldn’t wait to jump in and get back into the game. Katie has been head coach at Roycemore for three years. She believes everyone deserves a chance to play, no matter how much experience. Katie coaches based on three main philosophies: working collaboratively, committing to improve, and supporting team members. 

Announcements and Season Highlights

A Letter From Coach Carson

Dear Upper School Volleyball Players, 

We hope that everyone is having an amazing summer and is ready to start our volleyball season in August!  In order to be prepared for our first contest, we need to hit the ground running with practice to begin conditioning, figure out teams and positions, and start to bond!  Please read this entire letter carefully as there’s a lot of important information.

Opening practices before games begin will be held:

Friday, August 27 4:45 – 5:45

Monday, August 30 4:45 – 5:45

We will meet at school in the gym. Please wear athletic clothes, knee pads, gym shoes, no jewelry, and bring a water bottle. 

You should attend as many of these practices as possible, as our first game is August 31.  Any student new to Roycemore this year who wishes to play is invited to join us! No prior experience needed! We’re looking forward to a big turnout and a great season! 

Please note that the Illinois High School Association requires that all athletes have a physical examination each year. If you have not already submitted a physical examination form signed by your doctor for this year, you must have the attached form completed by your doctor and returned to the main office here at school.

Our season begins with a match on August 31 and concludes at the end of October on the 31st. After school practices will be held on non-game days. We expect every player to attend all practices and games, so please consider that when making a commitment to join our team.

I’m delighted to serve as Upper School Volleyball Head Coach again this year, and I look forward to seeing you soon.


Coach Katie Carson
