Developmental Leagues

Our developmental volleyball leagues focuses on all skills needed to develop the fundamentals of the game such as blocking, hitting, passing, serving, and offensive and defensive systems while also helping prepare athletes for the next level of competition...whether that's school or club volleyball. We do this by providing athletes with practices and matches in a league setting with a trained volunteer coach. All coaches go through classroom and on the court training to provide our athletes with the best possible instruction. Trainings are lead by the Avalanche Club Director and the Positive Coaching Alliance.

 

Understand that we are a developmental, not recreational league. I want to see athletes improve, progress, and develop proper fundamentals that will allow them the opportunity to have a lengthy playing career. I want our program and coaches to inspire and promote healthy competition among our athletes, so they’ll want to push each other and compete with each other. We believe in training, accountability, and working hard to make your teammates better. While I would love to be a program for everyone, that’s just not the case. For an athlete to be successful within our Yeti and White Out programs, they have to want to be here. If an athlete has little to no desire to learn, improve, or advance their volleyball skill set, they will not enjoy the program or help with the development of their teammates.

 

We run four seasons (Fall, Fall/Winter, Winter & Spring) run for 8-weeks and include: 8-weeks of practices, pre-season scrimmages, 7-weeks of match play, and an end-of-season single elimination tournament. However, our “bridge seasons” fall/winter and summer league, run 6-weeks, with the same format. All athletes will receive a jersey during the first week of practice. The athlete practice day/time is determined by their friend and/or coach request. Practices start as early as 6:00pm and are held weekly on MON, TUES, or WED, with all matches being played on Saturday mornings.
