End of Season Note from Steve

Hi everyone! In case you haven’t gotten official word from ACE, our governing body (USAV) is continuing to suspend and cancel all sanctioned events into late April, and probably later. Due to those decisions, we have decided to officially “pack it in” for this season. I think all of us were taken a bit by surprise at the way the 2020 club season just evaporated right before our eyes, and right when we were all gearing up for our trip to the Pacific Northwest Qualifier, or for our final local tournaments. It was certainly disappointing and unprecedented as well.

On a more positive note, I know all of our coaches were enjoying working with their teams. We have a bunch of wonderful girls playing volleyball with us and we appreciate that! I had the opportunity to see all of our teams practice at least a little bit, and saw every team play at a tournament sometime during the season. Thank you players for playing hard and being good to each other. Thanks coaches for all that you do for us! Thank you parents for being supportive and hauling your player into Anchorage at 7 AM on a cold Saturday morning in the middle of winter!

We are already working on setting things up for the 20-21 season which begins with our Fall Developmental Program for 7th and 8th Graders (tentatively 2 September – 7 October) Followed by 14U Tryouts (last week of October) and 15U, 16U, 17U… Tryouts (tentatively 16, 17 November)

Thanks again for a good season! We’ll look forward to helping our players
ASPIRE-COMPETE-EXCEL again very soon.
