FALL/WINTER 2021 | Lil' Flurries

In a better effort to help our newest generation of young volleyball players, Avalanche has tweaked the format of our Lil’ Flurries, 7-9u program. We’re moving to a more training formatted program and we’ll be switching to a different volleyball that will be friendlier for our youngest athletes.

The fall/winter pilot program will be a 6-week program that includes 5 hours of group training, two 1-hour team practices, and tournament style match play at the end. Even though we have had great success with our practice/league format in the past, we feel moving to a training format will be more conducive to meeting the demands and needs of our newest generation of volleyball players.
