Avalanche Athletics - Competitive Next Drift Volleyball League

This league will maximize player development to prepare athletes for the upcoming 2019-2020 club season.  If you’re not interested in club volleyball, but want a more competitive volleyball experience, then this is still the league for you. This is not a recreational league, but a league structured and geared toward the current and/or future club or high school player.

Two divisions will be offered: 9-12U and 13-16U. All players must be of age by September 1, 2020. Athletes will participate in a skill development practice, team concepts practice, and have match play once a week for seven weeks. 

A solid skill set and an understanding of the fundamentals of volleyball are needed for your athlete to be successful.

Space is extremely limited in this very sought-after program so make sure to register early and email Chris Stanfield at  with any questions.
