The EDGE Volleyball Club is growing and changing

Still the same club, the same name, the same great core group of coaches. Just going to have a new address! This summer/fall/winter, The EDGE is going to build a Brand new, four-court, practice facility in Littleton – where we started it all in 2010/2011. So after our June 14 Open Gym, we will close the doors on our Federal Blvd location forever. We are proud to say we outgrew the building because of our clubs growing success, popularity, and loyal players and families. We thank all of our club family for our success.

Open Gym at The EDGE

Summer Open Gyms

Our open gyms have been really popular this summer! So we’ve broken it into two sessions by age. Just get on the court and PLAY VOLLEYBALL! come to our facility at 3400 S Federal Blvd, Unit B, Sheridan, CO 80110. Bring a water bottle, your kneepads, and court shoes!

While we welcome unsigned players, and players from all clubs, we do not attempt to recruit players under contract. The EDGE uses all open gyms and our camps to identify players in whom we may have an interest in signing.

What is Gold Crown? | What if my athlete goes to another school? | Tryout Details

Gold Crown is a great way to prepare middle school athletes (grades 6-8, and we’ll take REALLY awesome 5th graders) for the competitive game they’ll see in high school. If your athlete is looking to become a competitive volleyball player, this is one way to strengthen her knowledge of the game. And for Golden High school athletes, a way to play for Golden High School coaches!

 

What is Gold Crown Volleyball?

This video from Gold Crown will describe it better than we ever could. Also, there’s a lot of our Coach Walter and our 8th Grade Gold Division CHAMPS from 2017. We coached Arapahoe’s program to the title last season. But this year, and as long as we’re coaching at Golden, we coaching Golden High School Demons!

 

What if my athlete will not attend Golden High School?

No problem! If your athlete attends a school that does not have a Gold Crown feeder program, or you do not like the feeder program for her school of articulation, we can find her a place to play on one of our teams. Gold Crown requires that a roster is made up of 60% athletes from the feeder school. Which means 40% of the roster can be made up of free agents. We firmly believe in the founding principles of the Gold Crown program – which is to give every young player a jump start to learning this sport. We work hard to find every athlete a place to play. Just sign up for any of the tryouts below, and we will find a roster on one of our teams for your athlete.
