We Build Champions – We Pursue Excellence – We Value Community
Thank you for your interest in being part of the Duck family this upcoming season. Ducks Volleyball Club was established in 1996, and is one of the most successful, established, longest running volleyball clubs in Western Canada. The Ducks have over 270 athletes and 60 coaches in our club each year and 1700+ loyal alumni – We Value Community. The Ducks have graduated 80+ athletes who have moved on to play post secondary, national team and professionally. We have also have won 70+ medals at Provincial Championships and 15+ medals at National Championships since our inception – We Build Champions. Our club Technical Director Ben Josephson oversees all of the systems and development infrastructure we have in place, which allows us to provide year round training opportunities run by professional and experienced coaches – We Pursue Excellence.
Ducks Volleyball is based out of the Tri-Cities (Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam), British Columbia. We offer professional and elite training for both male and female athletes from all over the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. While our indoor club program is our core focus, we also offer year round training through camps, clinics, and a highly successful beach volleyball program to ensure our athletes are receiving excellent training opportunities all year. We provide male and female athletes with the opportunity to develop and reach their individual physical, mental, and technical potential. We provide athletes opportunities to develop strong leadership skills, not only on the court, but also in the community. We want our athletes to become the best athletes and leaders they can become so they can make a positive impact in the lives of others, and in the communities they live in.
Ducks Volleyball holds open tryouts in November and December for female athlete (10U-18U) and male athletes (varies). We offer a range of teams from beginner to elite. We strive to provide 2-3 teams per age group for females, and 1 age group for males. The number of teams the Ducks provide vary year to year, as we will only put teams in place when we have appropriate facilities and experienced coaches for each team. All high performance teams will train 3 times per week, while 2nd and 3rd teams train 2 times per week.
Since there is no league for volleyball clubs in British Columbia, our teams compete in 4-6 tournaments per season (Jan-May), attend Provincial Championships, and some teams will travel to the National Championships in May. High performance teams will attend US tournaments and travel to higher caliber showcase tournaments.
Practice locations vary, but most practices will be held at Elementary/Middle/High Schools in the Tri-Cities and at the Harry Jerome Sports Centre in Burnaby.
