Winter 2019-2020

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 Coaches and the Positive Coaching Alliance.

Each of our three seasons run for 9-weeks and include: 9-weeks of practices, pre-season scrimmages, 7-weeks of match play, and an end-of-season single elimination tournament. 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 5:45pm for Lil’ Flurries, followed by our Yeti and White Out division practices. Practices are held weekly on M, TUES, WED, or THURS with all matches being played on Saturday mornings.

  • Lil’ Flurries 7-9u | 60 minute practices
