Who We Are

Elite West one of the premium volleyball clubs in Western Canada with a history of performance and development. We have won multiple provincial and national championships, and have provided post secondary opportunities for our athletes across Canada. We offer a unique experience for our athletes, focusing our attention on one team for a cycle (3 or 4 years). We started a new cycle, starting with U15 for the 2018/2019 season. Next season (2019/2020) we will move up with this group to U16, and will continue until they graduate and move on to the post secondary level. We focus all of our coaching and resources on our one team, providing them with the best experience available for the time in our program. We compete in all Alberta tournaments, as well as provincials and nationals in each season. As well, in each cycle, our teams travel internationally twice. In previous seasons, we have gone to Cuba and Puerto Rico, as well as the US national championships, where we are the only Canadian team to win that tournament on multiple occasions. We are planning two international experiences for this new group. We model our training and coaching programs on the best post secondary programs in the country to prepare our athletes to have the best opportunities available as they progress.

We focus on developing our athletes, putting them in the position to execute and succeed. Our focus on execution leads to success.
