Ducks Volleyball Club is a youth male and female volleyball club based out of the Tri-Cities, and provide elite training for athletes from all over the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. All volunteer coaches are certified NCCP Level 1 or higher.
We hold open tryouts in November and December. We have 2-4 teams per age category (U13, U14, U15, U16, U17, U18 as well as U11&U12 training teams). We train from January until May, most teams train 2 times a week, Ducks High Performance teams train 3 times per week.
There is currently no league for volleyball clubs in British Columbia. However, our teams compete in 4-6 tournaments per season (Jan-May). Ducks teams attend Provincial Championships and some teams will travel to National Championships in May.
Our club fee includes the following: tournament entrance fees, team jersey, provincial championships entrance fee, insurance, Volleyball BC membership, gym rental, and a warm up shirt. Travel costs are not included. Please refer to our Fees & FAQ section for more information.
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.
The Ducks Volleyball Club was started in 1996, and was at first a drop in volleyball opportunity for girls in Coquitlam. Since that time, the Ducks has grown to host 12 – 14 teams in any given year, and now consists of more that 170 male and female athletes, 35 coaches, and numerous volunteers, alumni and families that work together to create a unique atmosphere and life changing experiences.
The initial philosophy the Ducks Volleyball Club developed during our drop-in sessions, was to provide female athletes with equal opportunities in sport, and to provide a positive social experience. Within a few years, the Ducks rapidly developed and grew due the large increase in interest. In response to the increased interest, the Ducks began to alter its philosophy and create a structured system to facilitate the growth of volleyball and the club in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. The structure that is in place today provides males and females with the opportunity to develop and reach their individual potential physically, mentally, and technically, and to provide opportunities to develop strong leadership skills, not only on the court, but 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.
