Galaxy Volleyball Female Tryouts 2014/2015

Hello Everyone,

I am sending out a mass email regarding the Galaxy Volleyball Club for the 2014/2015 season. A tremendous amount of work has been done over the past summer and some very tough decisions have been made. The club decided that it was time to do a re-evaluation after its first two seasons. After doing that we have decided to offer a 16u program this year that will be very intense and...
continue to push volleyball to its limits. Coordinating schedules and training sessions around school teams for multiple age groups...etc is almost impossible. Combine that with a lack of resources and limited support, we felt major changes had to be made. This training/competition season will start and end earlier and offer a truly unique experience that will involve several competitions and conclude in April with a competition in the USA. Interest has been very high for the 16u age group, not only in the local area, but throughout the West Coast Region and beyond!!

Along with the re-evaluation, talks have been on-going regarding the merger of the Galaxy Volleyball Club with the Grenfell Campus Volleyball Program. The two groups have partnered in the past to deliver the Grenfell Volleyball Activity Camp which takes place in the summer. It has been decided that the Galaxy Volleyball Club will become the Junior Warriors Volleyball Club for the 2014/2015 season!! This partnership has huge benefits for both groups and a press release with more details will be out next week. With Grenfell pursuing competitive high performance athletics and Galaxy pursuing high performance volleyball, the partnership works well for both.

The club team will be looking for athletes that want to pursue volleyball at the highest level and be committed to training, willing to make sacrifices and put their teammates first. The season will be explained in detail during an information session scheduled below. The session will include a presentation on the seasonal plan as well as costs and expectations of parents and athletes. We have been in contact with several coaches of potential athletes (including high school coaches and club coaches from various areas) and will avoid any clashes with those programs. Out of Region Athletes are welcome, but NLVA rules apply for Provincial Competition.

That being said, Tryouts for the 2014/2015 season will take place Saturday, September 20, 2014 @ Grenfell Campus, Corner Brook, NL. This will be a day long camp and is detailed below:
