Phoenix Volleyball is excited to announce their summer beach volleyball program, for both boys and girls, age 14U-18U, in Moose Jaw and area. Participants of the program will take part in Sask Volleyball’s beach volleyball initiative, and players will have the opportunity to play in Sask Volleyball’s beach volleyball tournaments and provincials.
Phoenix Volleyball is coming off of a successful first club season, fielding three teams in the boys 14U, 15U, and 16U divisions, involving nearly 40 players from the Moose Jaw area. They also hosted two Phoenix Volleyball Classic tournaments that brought teams from all over Saskatchewan and Manitoba to our city. The 15U boys team, coached by Joel Mowchenko, is off to represent Moose Jaw at volleyball nationals in Regina May 18-20.
Improving Volleyball Skills over the Summer Months
There is currently no Sask Volleyball beach volleyball program in Moose Jaw for either girls or boys. “We are excited about the opportunity to provide coaching and game experience to athletes in Moose Jaw and area,” said Phoenix co-founder Jadon Ward, “There is a growing interest in beach volleyball, as it is a fun way to compliment and improve indoor volleyball skills during the summer months.”
Partnering with Briercrest College to install new nets and lines on their beach courts, Phoenix Volleyball will be running the beach volleyball program out of the college’s campus in Caronport, SK (around 15 minutes outside town). The program will be coached by Ethan Larsen and Joel Mowchenko.
The Phoenix Volleyball summer beach program will run twice weekly, from 4:00-5:30pm on Mondays and Thursdays, from June 17th to August 10th. Players can enter the program as a team with a predetermined partner (two players per team) or individually, to be matched up with a partner by the coaches. A total of 10 teams (20 participants) will be accepted to the program.
