Flatirons VBC is proud to celebrate our 21st season of Jr. Olympic Volleyball. We were founded by teachers who were also passionate volleyball players and coaches. One of our goals is to elevate volleyball in Boulder County. Our reputation is built upon hiring the very best coaches; they are the backbone of our club. They are dedicated and excited to share their passion for volleyball. We firmly believe in the importance of life lessons that are inherent with team sports.
Teams practice three times a week during the training phase of the season until the competitive season begins on January 2. Practice sites are Alexander Dawson School in Lafayette, Eldorado K8 School in Superior and Meadowlark PK8 School in Erie. When the competitive season begins, most teams will practice twice a week when they don’t have a tournament and three times when they do. Practices are typically Monday/Wednesday/Saturday or Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday. Because we rent school gyms, there will be unavoidable cancellations resulting in rescheduling of practice sites and occasionally times.
There are three distinct seasons at Flatirons Volleyball Club. The training season starts in early November through December. The competitive season begins January 2 and runs till May 13. The post season is for select teams who want to extend their season. In addition, a separate Beach Program starts mid May, finishing in early August. This is an extremely fun, optional program for girls wanting to play outdoor doubles volleyball.
