Anticipated 2022-2023 Club Teams

Regional Blue Teams - 11u, 12u, 13u and 14u

 

Blue Teams have limited Tournament Travel within the State of Arizona only. This division is a good fit for first time Club Players who have reached their peak within the Avalanche Developmental program or other recreational programs and would like to compete at a higher level. These teams will compete at the club or championship level within the AZ Region. Teams will compete in both USAV and AAU tournaments, but will not compete in any National Qualifiers or tournaments outside the state of Arizona.

Blue level teams have practice twice a week.  Blue Level Coaches are highly trained; Impact certified, experienced and focused on developing their athletes by providing consistent coaching throughout the season.
