CLUB Development TEAMS

Ducks Development Club Teams are for female and male athletes who want to continue playing and learning about volleyball, but for any reason were unable to participate on an indoor club team. Our goal is to provide a lighter club season, that will allow as many athletes as possible to play volleyball, train and compete. Training will provide athletes an opportunity to build a well rounded skill set, enhance their volleyball understanding through various competitive game play situations, and learn Ducks systems.  Depending on the program, teams will train 1X – 2X per week and attend 2-3 weekend tournaments and/or playdays. Training takes place from January to end of April.

This program is ideal for

1) Athletes that love volleyball, however, may not be able to commit to a full club season for a variety of reason and require flexibility in their schedule (e.g multi-sport athletes, indoor club expenses, time commitement etc.)
2) Athletes that were not identified or chose not to tryout for a club team, that want to continue training, be a part of a team, and gain experience with a goal of making a club team in the future.
