Frequently Asked Questions
What teams and age groups do you train?
For the 2019 club volleyball season, the Jr. Dinos Men's Volleyball Club will be running three teams:
16U Boys, 15U Boys, and 14U Boys.
The club plans to add one age group per year until all youth club age groups (from 14U to 18U) are covered (by the 2021 season).
Where do you practice?
The Jr. Dinos Men's Volleyball club practices out of three facilities:
The Junior Varsity Volleyball Training Centre
130, 10 Smed Lane SE, Calgary, AB T2C 4T5
Calgary Christian School
5029 - 26 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T3E 0R5
University of Calgary, Jack Simpson Gym
2500 University Dr NW, Calgary, AB T2N 1N4
Will there be spots available on the 2019 teams?
AVA rules prevent clubs from signing 14U and 15U players prior to the Tryout Period (beginning November 26, 2018), but the reality is that a number of last year's players have expressed an interest in returning to the Dinos, and we would be pleased to coach them again. So being transparent, the majority of spots will get taken by returning players, particularly for the older age groups.
That being said, there is always some movement between clubs, so a number of spots will be available. All interested athletes are encouraged to come to the tryouts. We will point you in the direction of other clubs where there might be availability, should an athlete not land a spot with the Junior Dinos.
The best availability for new player spots will be on our 14U team.
