Weekly camps, tons of training sessions, fun 6v6 leagues, a summer Little Spikers program. There’s a LOT going on at the EDGE! Check out what we’ve got going on below. As always, you can keep up with us by checking the calendar. And you can Like Us on Facebook as well!

All of the activities below take place at our practice facility: The EDGE Volleyball Club, 3400 South Federal Boulevard, Unit B, Sheridan, CO 80110

2016/2017 DEVELOPMENTAL TRYOUTS

As Always, The EDGE does NOT charge for Tryouts. Our developmental program is always a cornerstone for how we develop one of the absolute top U12 programs in the state. Tryouts are Sunday, September 18, 2:00pm – 4:00pm

This season we will introduce inter-club play as a component. The Developmental Team is considered one of our club teams and will practice from November through April. During that span, they will have four to six games against other USAV clubs.

Skills development and transitional game play competence are the root of the developmental team goals. As an EDGE developmental team player your athlete is a MEMBER of The EDGE Volleyball Club. Includes:

  • Two mandatory practices per week
  • Sunday speed and agility clinics during November and December
  • Saturday Skills clinics (on days without games)
  • Games against other USA Volleyball club developmental teams
  • Club jersey

For years, The EDGE has been among the top 5 in Colorado in the 12s age division. We have always attributed this to our dedication to the developmental program. Unlike many clubs in the region, we do not build our top teams by trying to recruit players from other clubs. We grow our talent in-house. The result is from 16s down, our top teams are always in the top three – eight for their age in Colorado. And it starts with Developmental Team.

2016/2017 CLUB TRYOUTS

As Always, The EDGE does NOT charge for Tryouts. Any positions not filled in tryouts, we will fill through our subsequent open gyms. Tryouts are also open gyms. So anyone who wants to play is still welcome to attend and get court time. We ask that our club players all attend tryouts to give prospective talent a chance to play with them so we can better see how they’ll mesh.

LAST OFFICIAL TRYOUT DAY! – Sunday August 7th, 2016
All Ages from 4 to 6pm

What to Bring to Tryouts:

USAV Membership card – Get it here
COPY of you Birth Certificate – ONLY for players NEW TO THE EDGE.

Upon Acceptance of position a deposit of $500 will be required. Accepting a position on a travel team is a commitment to FULL participation of ALL days in ALL out-of-state tournaments!

  • Uniform Package (2 Jerseys, 2 pair of socks, 1 spandex, 1 practice shirt, warmup pants and jacket)
  • Team Poster
  • Skills Sessions (in addition to team practices)
  • Preseason Conditioning Sessions
  • Starting this year, our 14-18 Red (travel teams) fees will NOT INCLUDE travel fees for your out-of-state events (Hotel/Airfare/Meals). The EDGE will reserve blocks of hotel rooms at discounts. But families will be individually responsible for travel, lodging, and meals for themselves and their athletes.

EXCEPTION: If your team bids to Junior Nationals there will be additional fees to cover entry fees. But travel, lodging and meal costs will, again, be handled by the individual families.

Teams participate in a preseason tournament, 6 powers, Crossroads, and JNQ’s if they qualify. Additionally, our 17s and 18s team will be showcase in Las Vegas at the National Volleyball Showcase where they will be playing in front of recruiters from colleges all over the country! Many of our teams will play at the 3-day RMR Showdown in Greeley. Our 14s-18s travel teams will also play at an additional out-of-state National Qualifier.

The EDGE has enjoyed a high level of success since our inception, we had several teams that finished the 2016 season in Division 1 thru 3 – including 3 in Regional Junior National Qualify play. The EDGE earned their second National Bid this past season and will be looking for more in 2017. Our mission has always been to offer a quality and affordable option for competitive volleyball – and we do.

As always, refer to the calendar for updates.
