ABOUT OUR
CLUB

WHY CHOOSE SLVC WAVE?

1

COACHING

We have the most dedicated and skilled coaches. Hands down.  They respect the game, their team, the officials, the competition. They will take over each other's team practice in a heartbeat, if needed.  They drive to practice from up to 80 kms away, three times a week. FOR FIVE MONTHS. They are our volleyball family.  

2

FACILITY

We are so lucky to be able to practice at the Sylvan Lake Multi-Campus.  Three full-size gyms can handle all the teams together. And so great for hosting tournaments.

COST

We have the lowest fees, and we will always strive to keep it that way.  We love our sponsors, who make it even more affordable.     

WHY WE PLAY VOLLEYBALL

Check out this video created by coach Megan Koch.  Did I mention that a lot of our graduated players come back to coach every year? It's the best.   


SLVC Wave creates six girls teams each year (ages 13U to 18U), with athletes attending our try-outs from all over central Alberta. We are a non-profit organization, all volunteers that really, really like volleyball & coaching. We do our best to ensure our players a memorable volleyball experience, with skilled coaching (seriously, check out their bios), tons of practice time and competitive game play.

*NEW FOR 2021 - LIMITED GYM AVAILABILITY MAY REDUCE OUR PRACTICE HOURS. 
WE WILL BE ATTENDING A PREMIER LEAGUE INSTEAD OF TOURNAMENTS.

Our Club practices Tuesday & Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. We are based out of the Sylvan Lake Multi-Campus, which is big enough to fit all our teams under one roof. Club season starts with try-outs in December and ends in April (May for the older teams). We enter all the Volleyball Alberta Premier Tournaments which are held on Saturdays & Sundays in Edmonton or Calgary. We also arrange exhibitions and enter private tournaments throughout the Club season. You will find all these events listed in our Club Calendar.

*NEW FOR 2021 - PLEASE READ OUR SAFE RETURN TO SPORT PDF FOR FEE INFORMATION

Each player's fees are comprised of tournament entry costs, Volleyball Alberta registration fees, coach expenses, gym rentals and athlete clothing packages. Totals depend on how many tournaments are entered and number of players on the team. Fees range from $750 to $850 for our 13U/14U teams to approximately $1300 for our 15U to 18U teams. Hotels and travelling expenses for players and parents are extra. We totally welcome team sponsors, as their donations help tremendously in reducing the costs for parents. Our sponsor form can be found here.


SLVC WAVE
HISTORY

MARCH 1998

Wayne and his family move to Sylvan in September, just in time for his youngest daughter to join her grade seven volleyball team. She was then asked if she wanted to play Club. Kristen loved playing with her first-year bantam team (now known as 13U), then Wayne stepped in to coach and hasn't stopped since.

MARCH 2000 

Wayne and Cindy take over Club duties when the previous coordinator moves to Airdrie. After a few 'learning years' we find our stride. Kristen graduates in 2004 but we keep on going. We now have multiple teams, new jerseys, new name and a new website!

JANUARY 2018

This year saw a record number of players at our try-outs (121), multiple medals won, a National championship, and our 18U coach winning the Volleyball Alberta Mikasa Coach of the Year award! And if you happened to notice a savvy, hard-hitting power on our 15U team? Well, that would be our granddaughter :)

JANUARY 2020

We are celebrating our 20th season of Club! Time does fly when you're having fun :) Props to all our awesome coaches over the years, to our past and present players and their parents.  We love our Club!
