SynergyVBC and Aldergrove Community Secondary School is offering its inaugural Developmental Train & Play program.
This program is being created to offer opportunities to those who may not be selected, or who may not be able to commit to the scheduling requirements of Team BC Youth VB or BC Selects Youth VB teams.
We will be offering a maximum of 18 positions for the following age groups: U11/12 - Gr5 & 6 U13/14 - Gr 7 & 8 U15/16 - Gr 9 & 10
Program runs from January 28 to May, 2020
ALDERGROVE - Synergy U11-12(Tuesdays 5-600pm-starts Jan 28,2020)
ALDERGROVE - Synergy U13 & 14 (Tuesdays 6-730pm-starts Jan 28,2020)
ALDERGROVE - Synergy U15 & U16 (Tuesdays 730-9pm-starts Jan 28,2020)
Cost is: FREE (however - athletes will be expected to participate for at least 70% of the program - otherwise a fee of $280 will be applied.) We want to introduce competitive development volleyball to the Aldergrove community and will need athletes to be able to commit - much like a true club volleyball program. This is NOT a "TRY IT OUT - and Participate when I want" program.
This program will provide training focussed on fundamental skill development in a fast, fun, learning environment. Kidz will work with experienced coaches and/or players to learn proper technique for serving, receiving, setting, attacking, blocking and defense along with athletic SAQ development.
VOLLEYKIDZ will use alternative equipment to ensure that kids are able to learn and have fun without the frustration of full sized nets, or heavier balls.
Registration will be available by March 18, 2020

BC Youth Volleyball is formally registered as Beyond Competition Youth Volleyball; has just been selected as a Sponsor club for the Junior Volleyball Association (JVA); and hopes to offer kids the understanding and knowledge to be competitive in Volleyball... and Beyond.
Club member positions under BC Youth Volleyball will be open to ALL at tryouts.
We intend to form the highest level of competitive teams based on skill level, compete level, and coach-ability.
We hope to be able to be able to offer an appropriate level of competitive teams for all.
Teams with BC Youth Volleyball may take part in the NorthWest Power League (NWPL - which is run by the JVA), which could include clubs from British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.
Tryouts for all teams will be held at the end of November for all teams. First competitions likely be held on January 5-6, 2019, so teams must be fully selected and training as quickly as possible.
All Tryout and program info will be posted on the BC Youth Volleyball Website found here: www.bcyouthvolleyball.ca
We have been selected as a SPONSORED JVA member club and will join the NWPL as the benefits to our clubs, coaches, and athletes, will include:
The Northwest Power League (NWPL) offers a unique competition format that will maximize quality competition while limiting the amount of time in the gym to 6 hours each day. This is the type of format used for National and International Competitions.
BC Youth Volleyball will offer three different options for Club teams with the hope of allowing every athlete who tries out an opportunity to experience club volleyball at their skill and competition level.
We hope to be able to offer a position to every athlete who tries out.
If you have a child that wants to learn and play the sport of Volleyball.... We will have a program available for them.
BC Youth Volleyball is going to continue to build on its success from the 2019 club Season.
We have seen incredible technical development and understanding of the sport of volleyball and will strive to continue our development of well balanced athletes.
Our focus will continue to be focussed on the most up to date development of “Correct” technical skills, and team based tactical play.
Most of our teams played in no less than 6 club tournaments, with our selects teams playing in some of the most competitive Power Leagues on the West Coast. The events we choose to participate in allow our coaches the liberty to develop players in their strengths, while expanding a players growth through challenging them in their areas that may need improvements.
Most of our teams will play in a combination of local club hosted events and Washington State events. This ensures that our athletes are able to continue to compete with their peers, and to support local clubs, while still providing opportunities for elite level competition.
Team Selection Process
For our 2019-2020 season, we are planning to offer the following teams(pending athlete needs/coaches commitments).
Our teams will be created using a unique format this year.
We want to show loyalty to those who have been developing with our club, while still maintaining two streams of competition.

Early Commitments for 2018-2019 BC Youth Volleyball players will hopefully be sent out towards the end of this week - October 26-27, 2019. These will need to be completed and returned by October 31, 2019. Based on the commitments, we will likely reassess our coaching assignments and may remove teams to allow development of there age groups.
Athletes who would love to play for BC Youth Volleyball are encouraged to complete our online application. We hope to try to fill team spots by minimizing the stress of a tryout. For us, its simple. We want to continue the development of athletes who want to want to play for us. We are not interested in the formation of a group of individuals who may possess some advanced volleyball skill, but are not team players, or who may have their own agendas. We continually prove that we are able to develop players and teams. Character, Personality, Respect, Always reliable, ability to Communicate with Confidence, Selfless, Adaptable, and displays Genuine Commitment, are all qualities that we look for in athletes we train.Tryouts
