2023 Girls Competitive Development Teams

If your daughter does not make a Thunder, Apex, Action, or Air Attack team or does not want the stress of club tryouts, our development teams are a great option to play on a team in the winter! Smash development players have a chance for more games and more playing time than if they are on club teams. In 2022 our 15  teams competed hard and won many matches against local club teams at club playdays (at SFU and Douglas College). 2023 Smash development team tryouts will be held Sunday Nov 27th and Sunday Dec 4th between 9:00am and 3:00pm for 13U, 14U, and 15U girls teams. Exact tryout times to be announced. Attendance at only 1 tryout is required. 

Why choose Smash competitive development teams? 

1. Our coaches are engaged and positive

2. Equal playing time

3. Our fees are significantly lower than ‘clubs’

4. Tournaments are local

5. At least 75% of kids that attend tryouts will make a team

6. One practice per week allows multi-sport participation in the winter months. 

7. Alignment with Thunder Volleyball Club (philosophy, tryout process, coordination). Dozens of Smash development team players have gone on to make Thunder teams the following year.
