Summer Youth League at the EDGE

Register here (a new page will pop up)

Growing the sport of volleyball is at the heart of what we do here at the EDGE. Our developmental program is one of the strongest in the state of Colorado. Our home-grown success can be illustrated through our strong presence in recreation leagues, our success in Gold Crown, and our strong teams in USAV competition.

To continue our effort to grow the sport, the EDGE is looking to compliment our already thriving Little Spikers and club developmental program with a beginner/intermediate competitive league for players looking for a bit more than the local recreation leagues can offer.

The EDGE will offer a Youth Volleyball League this summer for grades 4th thru 7th. The teams will be divided between players entering 4th/5th grades and players entering 6th/7th grades.

  • The season will begin June 1st and run thru August 1st.
  • Each team will practice once a week for two hours, practice times will be weekdays from 7 pm to 9 pm.
  • Each practice will be supervised by a Club Coach.
  • Games will be held on Saturdays (times to be determined).
  • The season will start with a skills camp for all players prior to their first team practice.
  • Teams will consist of up to 10 players.
  • Each player will receive a numbered team jersey.
  • Player fee will be $95.00
  • Coaches will be provided.
  • If you have a full team that you would like to enter please contact Jim – (720) 937 0582.

Since this is a new program we are accepting registrations now to ensure we can provide a sufficient amount of teams. If you know of players who might be interested please spread the word!

15 Red Catches Fire at Show Me JNQ

Under the watchful eye and sarcastic wit of head coach Corey Martin, the EDGE 15 Red overcame a rough day one to finish the last two days of the Show Me national qualifier 6-0! As anyone who’s had a rough day at tournament can tell you, it takes some heart to come back and compete hard as the days wear on. 15 Red did just that, going undefeated their last two days and finishing with style! Great job girls!

Edge Teams on the Rise and Having Fun!

The EDGE 13 Blue, 14 Blue, and 14 White are all on the move! All three teams have won their last Power.

We don’t have a picture of 13 Blue picture from Power 5, but here is a pic of the team at the RMR Showdown acting silly along with the 13 Red. Well, let’s be honest. Both teams are just being themselves …0214151338d

Below is the 14 Blue just after winning their division and a Power 5 pin!

Awesome job players and coaches!!!

The EDGE Family

As the last day of the second week Crossroads is about to get underway, a few of us coaches were talking about what this tournament means to our club and players. Crossroads is a hard, but amazing tournament. And every year, good or bad, it becomes a point in the season where we see what our teams, and our individual players are made of.

This season, Crossroads showed that the EDGE is growing, not only as a competitive club, but also in our culture. More players showed up this weekend to support other teams during their off weekend than ever before. Practice players became a regular sight on their team benches. We made some new friends in other states.  And teams found through hard-fought competition, and adversity, a new level of play they didn’t realize they were capable of.

But the biggest symptom of our growth in the right direction were all the players who showed up during their off weekend to support their club family when they were on their off weekend.  And the number of practice players who came to support their teams. It really shows that our culture as a club is beginning to mature. Thanks for supporting your EDGE teammates and club mates. You make our club a unique and fantastic place to play.
