Who’s eligible?

Athletes born from September 1, 2005 to Dec 31, 2006 (16 months) will qualify for this age category. All athletes are eligible to tryout as long as they meet the age requirements.  Lead by Julie Young, we are continuing the development of a high-performance volleyball program and the assembly of our next group of athletes will be for this coming volleyball club season.

The second tryout will be Thursday December 5 from 5pm-7pm. Please come ready to work hard and have fun! Please confirm your attendance by emailing julie4young@gmail.com

Commitment expectations

We want to be very transparent in the commitment level for selected athletes. We will be training as a team 1-2 times per week likely Tuesday and Thursdays after school / evening at Tsolum school. In addition to the team practices, skill development (1 hour on court) and strength training (1 hour in the gym) will be delivered before school by the Strathcona Prep Volleyball School program in Campbell River and Comox Valley. The training programs and the commitment required is the differentiation from local recreational volleyball programs. Cost for the program will be discussed at the parent meeting on December 3.

Wave Volleyball Club was formed to provide local and regional athletes with an opportunity to train and play in a more high-performance environment similar to what is available in Vancouver. If selected to Wave, athletes will be working with some of the best high performance, technical, and strength coaches in Canada. Some of our current athletes are gaining a reputation for their high calibre of play and are being recruited to post-secondary institutions, including the NCAA. In addition to technical skills and match strategies, we teach our athletes to embrace challenges, give maximum effort, be a positive and supportive teammate and compete with confidence and passion. We believe we are coaching athletes to compete in volleyball while also empowering these young women and preparing them for any obstacles that come their way in life. Sport teaches athletes how to overcome adversity, how to work well with others and how to deal with failure; all skills important in life.
