January 27 was a great day for both the 15U and 14U Girls as the two teams competed in the 15U McGregor Cup in Clarington. The 15U team went undefeated all day while the only losses incurred by the 14U Girls were to their older sister team in pool play and in the gold medal match. Congratulations to both teams…your support of one another throughout the day was a true testament to sportsmanship and camaraderie!
Once again, our Learn to Play Volleyball (LPV) program in both Port Perry and Whitby filled up quickly! Our youngest players are now busy in the gym learning the FUNdamentals of volleyball! Our LPV coaches focus on teaching players the basic skills needed to become better volleyball players. We hope we will see some of these LPV athletes at our tryouts in the fall for the 2018/2019 season. Online registration for our summer camps is now open online. Visit the Register page of our website to sign up.

Our 12U girls are looking fierce as they gear up for the height of their competition season. Coaches Scott and Cassandra have a spectacular group of girls in this 11U/12U hybrid team. A special thanks to the team’s gold level sponsor, Parfield Printing, for supporting this great group of newcomers! Learn more about our 12U girls by visiting their team page.
12U Team Sponsors:
The DDSB has informed us that only permits north of Highway 7 are cancelled this evening, meaning Pringle Creek PS in Whitby would not be affected by this cancellation. However, given current conditions and concern that the situation 3-6 hours from now could be very different, we will NOT hold our Learn to Play program this evening. Next week is a DDSB PA Day which means our first session will be delayed until January 26; the program will still run for 10 sessions.
We trust you understand this is not an easy decision to make but we must put the safety of our staff and participants ahead of everything else. Thank you for your understanding.

When the DDSB cancels its Community Use of School Permits, this means our programs are cancelled. We do not have the option of overriding the DDSB’s decision to close its schools due to weather; this decision is made for the safety of our participants, staff and the school’s custodial staff. Any cancellations will be tweeted on our Twitter account as soon as we are informed. You can see our Twitter feed on the right hand side of our website and also visit our Twitter directly at @DRVCvolleyball.
