Aces and Slammers claim 18U and 16U Men’s Volleyball Titles

The Charlottetown Aces are the 18U Men’s Provincials champions after winning the provincial championship Saturday afternoon at Holland College.  The Aces won all league tournaments but one this season and ended the season on a high note.  The Summerside Slammers picked the right weekend to peak and as a result, took home the 16U title.

The provincial tournament set up differentiated from the league play in that after round robin, teams were broke out into age groups.  The top team for each age group got a bye to the final and 2nd and 3rd played off to see who would play in the final.

18U

The Aces lost only one set all day at the championship tournament, this in the finals where the West Prince Islanders jumped in front with a 25-20 win and put the pressure on. The Aces would follow it up with a 25-17 win and closed it off in the 3rd set finishing off the Islanders 15-7.  The Islanders were unable to mount an attack against the strong blocking Aces and Lee Li, a grade 11 student with the Aces kicked his offense into another gear dominating the middle of the court with kill after kill.

The Islanders, in second place after round robin, advanced to the finals with an easy win over the third place Hampshire Heat.  The Heat’s passing game was off and as a result were unable to generate much offense.  West Prince used the miscues to their advantage and went on to win 25-13.

16U

The Summerside Slammers struggled for much of the spring league season but came together at the right time to win the 16U Provincial Title over the Hampshire Heat in two straight sets, both with scores of 25-17.  The key to the Slammers win was a total team effort, with every player stepping up to do their part. 

In the semi final the Heat let slip a 2 point lead late in the game but held on to defeat the West Prince Islanders 26-24.  This was one of the most exciting games of the day with the teams trading points in long rallies.

All Stars:

16U Summerside Slammers – Chris Richard
16U Hampshire Heat – Brandon Watts
16U West Prince Islanders – Connor Herget

18U Charlottetown Aces – Brett Butler
18U West Prince Islanders – Kent Doucette

14U Boys Champions Crowned!

The Summerside Slammers swept the Charlottetown Aces 2-0 to win their second consecutive Volleyball P.E.I. 14U Boys Provincial Championship.  Summerside beat the Aces 25-17 and 15-14 to claim their fourth-ever title.

“Our boys played great all night” said head coach Dale MacDougall of the Slammers.  Jacob Smith, coach of the Aces praised his boys despite the loss.  “Except for the first part of the second game of the finals, I thought our team played well.  A big congratulations to Dale MacDougall and his team on their championship”.

The Charlottetown Bench Warmers needed three games to edged Cornwall Red Mudd 2-1 to claim the bronze medal.  Red Mudd started the match with a 25-19 victory. But the Bench Warmers came back to tie the match, winning 25-20.  The third and deciding set was back-and-back but Charlottetown would prevail 15-12.

The five-team event took place last Friday at Holland College in Charlottetown. It culminated in a spring season that saw each of the five clubs host a tournament and the provincials making it six tournaments. Summerside took three of the six events while the Aces won twice and the Bench Warmers finishing first once.

The Slammers advanced to the finals by edging the Bench Warmers 25-19.  The Aces got by Red Mudd 25-22.  The first two rounds of the playoffs were one set to 25.  In the first vs second quarter-finals, the Slammers crushed Red Mudd 25-9 while the Bench Warmers advanced to the semi-finals by defeating the West Prince Islanders in the fourth vs fifth quarter-finals 25-16.

The five teams played a full round robin of 12-minute games.  The Slammers finished first with a perfect 4-0 record.  They were followed by Red Mudd (3-1), Aces (2-2), Bench Warmers (1-3) and Islanders (0-4).

The All-PEI All-Star team was made up of Ethan Boyd (Slammers), Ryan Thompson (Aces), Gabe Penalver (Bench Warmers), Connor Chapman (Red Mudd) and Carter Cahill (Islanders).

ATOMIC VOLLEYBALL in Cornwall

The Atomic Volleyball program is a great tool for teaching children the basics of the sport and getting them ready for the more complex 6 on 6 game when they are older. As a companion program to Volleyball Canada’s successful Mini-Volley program, Atomic Volleyball continues to build on the Mini-Volley concepts. This program focuses on fair play, skill development, teamwork and most of all a rewarding game-play experience. Its larger goal is to develop a passion for the sport in the younger players of the game! Atomic Volleyball can be incorporated into a recreation program. It incorporates principles established in the Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) athlete development model for Learning to Train Stage athletes. In the Atomic program, the traditional 6 on 6 game has been modified. The game is played 4 on 4 to increase player involvement, increase the number of times each player regularly contacts the ball, and raise a young player’s confidence. The game is also very adaptable. Nets are lowered to heights appropriate for the size and age of the players. Fun and participation are the primary objectives of the program not competition. UPEI Women’s Head Volleyball Coach, Josh Corkum, certified volleyball NCCP Level 2 coach and qualified atomic instructor will lead this program.

Dates:  APRIL 17 - JUNE 5  (Thursdays)
Ages: 6 – 12 years
Time:  6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Location:  WESTWOOD SCHOOL
Cost:  $40.00 PER PERSON.

To register, contact the Cornwall Parks & Recreation Department at 628-6260.

What is the Volleyball PEI - Centre of Excellence?

The Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence is specifically designed to prepare high performance volleyball athletes to take their game to the next level. The Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence is meant to compliment, NOT REPLACE, our existing school and club programs. The Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence will add additional training to increase skill development for our elite athletes.

Why was the Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence Created?

In Canada we have developed guiding principles to lay a road map that allows our athletes to reach their full potential in both a High Performance and an Active for Life environment. These principles come from our Long Term Athlete Development model, or LTAD for short. Volleyball PEI's role is to provide leadership and support for implementation of LTAD.

Our young developing athletes spend more time in competition (playing games) than in training and development (practice). To add to this, practice time is typically spent on developing team systems in preparation for games. While this produces short term success on the court, the technical skills of our athletes are being left behind.

Here is what our Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence will look like:

Location: Bluefield High School
Ages (Male & Female): 13-18 year olds – 36 total spaces available
Schedule: Sunday, November 24th – Sunday, February 23rd. The program will run from 1-3pm each Sunday. There will be no program sessions on December 22nd & December 29th due to the holiday season.

The Volleyball PEI Centre of Excellence is developed based on an integrated sport performance team environment, including a number of services to complement high performance athlete development. Physical assessments, testing, integrated strength and conditioning are part of the program offered by Volleyball PEI. Working with leading experts in Nutrition, Sport Psychology, and Athlete Development, the Centre program ensures cutting edge athlete training.

Focusing on Team Canada/Provincial Team Pathway athletes (Grade 8-12) ready to take their game to the next level, committed high school and club athletes as well as Regional, Provincial, National recognized athletes will benefit from the training received in the Centre. Training is based specifically on individual skill development. A very low coach to athlete ratio allows for lots of personal feedback, ball contacts and progress for athlete success.

Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence’s professional team of coaches, many of which coach at and have associations with local College and University teams, receive training and development from the National Coaches Certification Program. Each one understands what it takes to excel at the next level and what each athlete needs to do to be successful both on and off the court.

What’s included:
- high level of individual athlete skill development

- Great athlete to coach ratios

- Partnership with key sport science service providers to provide support in the areas of:

o Nutrition
o Mental skills training
o Strength & conditioning

- 2 Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence Dri-fit Training shirts

The cost of each 8 week session is $50. To register contact Josh at 314-3598, or email jcorkum@cornwallpe.ca.

This is another way to keep in volleyball shape before Spring League Volleyball which starts right after March Break!

 

Atomic Volleyball

The Atomic Volleyball program is a great tool for teaching children the basics of the sport and getting them ready for the more complex 6 on 6 game when they are older. As a companion program to Volleyball Canada’s successful Mini-Volley program, Atomic Volleyball continues to build on the Mini-Volley concepts. This program focuses on fair play, skill development, teamwork and most of all a rewarding game-play experience. Its larger goal is to develop a passion for the sport in the younger players of the game! Atomic Volleyball can be incorporated into a recreation program. It incorporates principles established in the Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) athlete development model for Learning to Train Stage athletes. In the Atomic program, the traditional 6 on 6 game has been modified. The game is played 4 on 4 to increase player involvement, increase the number of times each player regularly contacts the ball, and raise a young player’s confidence. The game is also very adaptable. Nets are lowered to heights appropriate for the size and age of the players. Fun and participation are the primary objectives of the program – not competition.   “UPEI Women’s Head Volleyball Coach, Josh Corkum, certified volleyball NCCP Level 2 coach and qualified atomic instructor will lead this program in cooperation with Volleyball PEI.”

Thursdays, Oct. 10 – Nov. 28. Ages 6-12. 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Westwood School. $40.00 for 8 Week Session.  Register with Josh at jcorkum@cornwallpe.ca or 628-6260.
