2013 - 2014 Tryout Process is Now Complete

Dec 12, 2013

Although our Pandas Volleyball Club teams for the 2013 - 2014 season have been chosen, we are disappointed that we had to turn away athletes. We saw great potential in many of you who attended our tryouts. For those who did not make one of our teams, other clubs in the Edmonton area have not yet finished their tryout process. For a listing of all clubs in Alberta with links to tryout information, visit Club Listings. In addition, the Go League at the Saville Centre, offers opportunities for 13U-18U athletes to work on their skills and team play - click League Play for details. Best of luck to all athletes in your volleyball development journey.
 
Also, thank you to all who donated to HOPE Mission's Christmas Meal Campaign in lieu of tryout fees. $2,430.50 was raised and HOPE Mission says, "Thanks for your partnership to help people in need."
 
Club Meeting Reminder:
For those athletes selected to join a Pandas team, we will be holding a Club Meeting on Tuesday, December 17th from 7:00-9:00pm at Jasper Place High School - 8950-163 Street, Edmonton AB. The meeting will be held in Room 188. Pandas Club athletes and parent(s) are encouraged to attend. The meeting agenda will include the introduction of our coaching staff, an overview of our club philosophy and athlete development goals, clothing fitting, and fee payments, among other topics. We look forward to seeing you all.
