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 :)

FAQ

SLVC Wave forms 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.

Our Club practices Tuesday & Thursday evenings, plus 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.

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 around $600 for our 13U & 14U teams and approximately $1200 for the older teams. Hotels and travelling expenses for players and parents are extra. We welcome team sponsors, as their donations help tremendously in reducing the costs for parents.
