The Durham Attack Volleyball Club is making plans for the start of their 23rd season with a variety of programs. Last year was another successful season for both the girls and the boys, with three Provincial titles, one Provincial Silver medal, one Provincial bronze medal, two National Championships and one National bronze medal. Our hope is to continue this success into next season.
Our competitive program is for boys and girls ages 12-17 or born in the years 1997- 2003. For the first time in Durham Attack history we will be selecting a 13u Boys team that will play in the full complement of tournaments in the Ontario Volleyball Association. We are also adding a Senior Women’s team that will play tournaments in and around the province.
The competitive season opens with tryouts beginning on Saturday, September 6 at Pickering High School in Ajax. We invite athletes to attend all three tryout sessions as this allows each athlete the best opportunity to demonstrate their skill. The tryout fee is $30.00 and includes a t-shirt. Please visit the tryout schedule for times and locations of the tryout that interests you. For more information contact Janet Cairns at 905-725-3092 or via email at email@example.com.
The Club also offers a variety of recreational programs under its umbrella. The boy’s house league runs on Friday evenings in Ajax at J Clarke Richardson. Registration begins on Friday, September 26, which is also the first night. If you require more information, please contact Scott Burrows at 905-721-9042 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The girl’s house league program operates Sunday mornings with locations in Ajax and Oshawa. For further information, contact Chris Williamson at 905-725-3092 or via email at email@example.com.
The Club is also proud of its sitting volleyball program, which gives athletes with disabilities the opportunity to participate in the game of volleyball. Two of the athletes introduced to the sport through our program are now playing on Canada’s national team. Registration for this program will begin in December, with sessions starting in January.
