About SLVC WAVE

Our Club started way back in 2000 with two 'we-hope-enough-show-up!' girl's teams. We now host multiple try-outs for all six age groups (13U to 18U), with players attending from all over Central Alberta. We are a non-profit organization, just volunteers that really, really like volleyball and coaching. We do our best to ensure our players a memorable volleyball experience, with skilled coaching (seriously, check out their bios), tons of practice time and competitive game play.

Our Club practices Tuesday & Thursday evenings, plus Sunday afternoons. We are based out of the Sylvan Lake Multi-Campus, which is big enough to fit all our teams under one roof. Club season starts with try-outs in December and ends in April (May for the older teams). We enter all the Volleyball Alberta Premier Tournaments which are held on Saturdays & Sundays in Edmonton or Calgary. We also arrange exhibitions and enter private tournaments throughout the Club season. You will find all these events listed in our Club Calendar.

Each player's fees are comprised of tournament entry costs, Volleyball Alberta registration fees, coach expenses, gym rentals and athlete clothing packages. Totals depend on how many tournaments are entered and how many players are on the team. Typically they range from $600 at the 13U level to $1200 for the older girls. Hotels and travelling expenses for players and parents are extra. We welcome team sponsors, their donations help tremendously in reducing the costs for parents.



Wayne Halliday

Club Coordinator/Head Coach

Wayne started coaching in Sylvan Lake in 2000, and hasn't slowed down since. Typically he starts in September coaching at HJ Cody, then runs his Club and coaches (sometimes two teams) from December to May. June finds him on the pier setting up the beach nets. Every other year in July,  he's at the Alberta Summer Games. Yes, he does have a real job and family.  
AND HE HAS A BOBBLEHEAD!

Rick Boyes

Head Coach

Rick (guy on the right) hanging with Glenn Hoag at a recent coach clinic. Rick constantly strives to up his coaching game and it shows. Three athletes from his 2017 18U team have signed with post secondary schools this fall! Like Wayne, he also has a real job and a family, who either coach or play(ed) for our Club. Rick also has a super successful gig coaching school volleyball every fall.
AND HE HAS A BRICK!    

Rhonda Carpenter

Head Coach

This picture demonstrates why these two coaches are never allowed to leave our Club! Each year they choose twelve girls then blast them with three months of everything volleyball. And by the end of the season? The whole team will show growth, positivity and mad skills. Guaranteed.
AND RHONDA HAS TRAVIS!  Aw.
