Both teams will train together at least once per week provided appropriate gym facilities are available.
NEW for 2018: Thunder Volleyball Club has partnered with Vancouver Volleyball League to offer selected 14U athletes not playing on a Thunder team the opportunity to train and play in a house league. More details to follow.
For U15-18 teams the final selection into teams will be made in December or early January once coaches/selection committee are confident in the composition. While the philosophy of training together as a group of twenty-four athletes continues, there is more time spent training as a team unit. Teams are not even strength and actual breakdowns will be assessed at tryouts and communicated to athletes at each age group.
15U – 2 teams –Blue & White
16U – 2 teams – Blue & White
17/18 – 3 teams – athlete abilities and ages will determine team breakdowns
