Fall is quickly approaching which means it’s time to put away the sunscreen and dust off your court shoes! EVP is excited to announce the Fall lineup of programs for both youth and adults. All of our programs begin the week of October 8th and will continue to run through until the start of summer next year.
The first program that EVP offers is our youth rep volleyball club, the EVP Eagles! This is an extremely competitive program where athletes train twice a week with highly skilled coaches to sharpen their skills. The rep teams play one tournament a month against other clubs from around Ontario and at the end of the season compete at provincials. Other tournaments, both domestic and international, are offered for those teams that want to see where their skills stand, however, those are optional. Try-outs start September 23rd, for more details please visit the EVP website at www.evpcanada.com
There are those who enjoy playing in a competitive environment but may not be as confident in their skills as they would like to be. Not to worry! EVP offers a fun and exciting house league from ages 9-17 where players practice once a week and then play games in a structured format. Players receive their very own jersey and get awards throughout the session with a chance to win medals and even more prizes at the end of the season. The house league program is also a great way for players to build and develop their skills if they would like to try-out for our rep programs. Over 50% of our house league athletes go on to play for the EVP Eagles or other various clubs in the Ontario Volleyball Association.
Finally, EVP offers three different development league programs for players who are new to the sport of volleyball. These leagues consists of players from ages 5-17 and has them practising one night per week, where half of the time is allotted for drills and the second half is playing games against each other. This league is a great way for players to learn the sport in a fun and exciting environment.
Do not worry adults, EVP did not forget about you! We do offer an adult league that runs three nights per week at various skill levels. This is a great way to stay active, make new friends and have something to talk about with your children if they are part of the EVP family too! In the past, there have been teams created with only parents of the children in our rep or house league programs; coaches teams and various other organizations also put together teams. For all those competitive people out there, awards are presented at the end of the season for the teams that win it all.
EVP is always expanding and coming up with new ideas to help give youth and adults a place to play and work on their skills. If you or anyone you know would like to play, please visit the EVP website at www.evpcanada.com or call administration at (647) 300 6620.
Hope to see you all very soon!
