VOLLEYBALL FESTIVAL: U14-16 National teams in Phoenix

June 24-29, Phoenix, AZ -- Volleyball Festival Nat'l Championships

NW Juniors Elite sent 6 teams to Phoenix for the Volleyball Festival Championships.  It was a great first experience for a lot of our National teams Members and proved rewarding for those that have attended as well. Logistically, sending 6 teams to Phoenix is a challenge, but with the cooperative spirit of the players, coaches and parents as well as the great hotel accommodations -- all teams had a fantastic experience.  Most teams finished the 4-day tournament with a winning record; two teams won their divisions and took home some hardware; and the 16 UA Black team capped a fantastic season with a 7th place finish in the 16's division.

Annually, our U14 and older National teams participate in a post-season tournament. Ideally, we would like out teams to qualify for USAV Nationals, and we had teams come close this season, but Phoenix has proven to be a great "consolation" prize for our National Teams.  Not only do we get great weather and great camaraderie to end our season, but we get great competition from a field filled primarily with teams from Arizona, Southern California, and other parts of the country. We are proud of our teams and excited for another great season next year.

Annual Club BBQ and Awards Party

The club held our annual BBQ and Awards party on Saturday, May 16th at Alki Beach. Many of our athletes got a good introduction to beach volleyball. 14 nets were set up at Alki Beach, and our teams played in 4 Different Divisions. The following teams won their divisions:

  • Claire Kennedy & Evan Dragich -- 15 Baden Blue

Congratulations to this year's Club Award Winners!
