SEAVC is likely going to require additional head coaches and assistant coaches for 13U and 15U girls teams in order to create additional opportunities for athletes to play.  Interested coaches would be able to train with our current 13U & 15U coaching staff for Sunday practices, so extensive coaching experience is not required. Funding may available to support Level 1 coaching certification if a successful candidate is not already a fully certified Development Coach (formerly Level1) .  All coaches are required to provide a Police Check and Child Intervention


Volleyball Alberta Coaching Requirements


Interested candidates should contact Wes King-Hunter wes.king-hunter@sd76.ab.ca


Tryouts will be held for 13U, 14U and 15U women as per the schedules posted on this website.  If we have enough athletes committed to playing competitive club volleyball for any particular age group, we will do our best to form a 2nd team so that more girls can play at local and/or Volleyball Alberta tournaments.

 The SEAVC Website is currently still being renovated and will continue to be updated in early December with information about tryouts and the 2016 season in general.




Thanks for your support and patience.

SEAVC Developmental & FUNdamental Programs

SEAVC Developmental & FUNdamental Programs are provided by SEAVC to allow athletes the opportunity to develop their individual skills in volleyball without having to worry about: the commitment of multiple practices per week; conflicting schedules with other sports or interests; or the financial commitment involved with travelling to tournaments.  


    - Athletes not selected to a team are invited to continue training with the Developmental Program

    - Athletes main register in any SEAVC Developmental or FUNdamental Program during the season

    - these programs are focused primarily on individual skill development and are not 'team-based'.

    - There is NO Pre-registration for SEAVC programs.  Just register on site.

    - Athlete Waivers will be available on-site and must be completed by both athletes and their parent(s).


*Registration for all Developmental Programs (including FUNdamentals) is $120, which includes registration fees with Volleyball Alberta & Volleyball Canada as a recreational level player, weekly training into the month of April, a Warm-up shirt and possibly another item such as a mini-volleyball.


  ** SEAVC has reduced the Developmental Fee to $120 (from $150 in previous years) to reflect less expensive 'Recreational' VA/VC membership fee option now available for those not competing in tournaments.  SEAVC has passed this saving on to the SEAVC members (and parents). 


12U* Competitive Program

In response to requests from parents and athletes to provide a Competitive Program for young girls (under the age of 13) who already have a sound skill base and/or have participated in SEAVC Developmental Program for a number of years, SEAVC will hopefully be able to run a 12U team that will compete with 13U teams this again year, providing there is enough interested athletes.


Athletes will still have the opportunity to participate in the Developmental Program if they so wish and are not require to play at the Competitive level; this would simply be an opportunity to challenge athletes according to their level.   If we have enough athletes interested, tryouts could take place in January.  Schedules will be posted on this website and Tryout information will also be sent to schools. 



Rattlers Academy Volleyball Club (RAVC)

In an effort to make an even smoother transition from high school and club level volleyball to the collegiate level, and the Medicine Hat College Rattlers in particular, SEAVC will direct 17/18U boys & girls and 15/16U boys to the Rattlers Academy Volleyball Club (RAVC) in order to train with varsity athletes, under the guidance and mentorship of the MHC College Rattlers head coaches, Kim Stonehouse (Women) & Mark Porter (Men).



DEVELOPMENTAL & FUNdamental Volleyball Programs

to be updated still

  14U Developmental Program (athletes born 2001-2002 or later) 

12U Developmental Program (athletes born 2003-2004 or later) 

10U FUNdamental Program (athletes born 2005-2007 or later) 


Athletes & Teams in the Competitive Program will travel to tournaments and compete in the Alberta Volleyball Association Provincial Championships.  Athletes in the Developmental and FUNdamental Programs will train, but do not travel to any tournaments.

The Developmental and FUNdamental Programs are designed for athletes who want to improve their volleyball skills and knowledge, but choose to not compete in tournaments throughout the province.  It is intended that there will be a small SEAVC home tournament at the end of the season (Date TBA) for the 13/14U Developmental Athletes to compete in.  There will also be a small SEAVC wind-up tournament for the12U Developmental & 10U FUNdamental Athletes on Date TBA) -> Warning: parents may be asked by their children to play for part of the tournament, so bring your runners  :-)

Depending on the number of Developmental athletes registered at the 13/14U age group level, the Developmental athletes may train exclusively as an entire group of Developmental athletes, or they may be integrated with the Competitive 13/14 Teams when they practice.  The 12U Developmental & 10U FUNdamental age groups will tentatively practice at the same time, but on different courts or possibly even in different gyms, depending on # of athletes and gym availability.  The two age groups may do some activities and skills together, while doing others separately in order to accommodate the different ages, skill and maturity levels.

The SEAVC program also tries to finish off each season with an annual wind-up BBQ and beach volleyball fiesta at the Beach Volleyball Courts in Kin Coulee for ALL athletes (Competitive, Developmental & FUNdamental programs), coaches and parents, one day at the end of the season ...... usually in late May.  The actual date is reliant on weather, so we won't have a specific date until it becomes much closer to the time.

The South East Alberta Volleyball Club (SEAVC - pronounced “see’- vick”) has been in operation since 1989, and developed a cooperative relationship with the Medicine Hat College Rattlers program.  The SEAVC Rattlers have drawn 1000’s of athletes from many, if not all of the city’s elementary, Junior and Senior high schools and from many of the surrounding communities throughout South East Alberta and South West Saskatchewan.  Last year, the club included women’s teams in each of the different age categories (16U, 15U, 14U, 13U & 12U) as well as 14U & 12U Developmental Programs & a 10U FUNdamentals Program.

The SEAVC program is designed to incorporate “FUN” into the development of individual and team oriented volleyball skills.  The South East Alberta Volleyball Club is competitive with other programs in Alberta as SEAVC teams have won: 4 Provincial Tier II Championships (18W - ‘93 & ‘98, 16W – ’94, 18M – ‘06); 2 Provincial Tier I – Div II Championships (18M & 18W - 2011); 2 Div II Silver Medals (16W – ’00, 14W – ’06, 14W – ‘07) and 1 Bronze (18M – ‘98).  The club has also garnered 2 Tier I Provincial Consolation Championships (18W- ‘92 & ‘94).  SEAVC has finished second at the Canadian Western Championships Div II (16W – ‘02) and the 18U Canadian Open (18W – ‘03, 18M - '07), and 4th at the Canadian Western Championships (14W – ’06).   The SEAVC program has been highly regarded in the province and by Volleyball Alberta as one of the few lead programs that promotes a grassroots development younger than 12 years of age and promotes maximum participation and competitive opportunities for athletes by providing developmental programs, consistent with the philosophies of Volleyball Canada, the Volleyball Alberta and Sport Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development Plan (LTAD).

A number of former SEAVC athletes have gone on to play on Alberta Provincial Volleyball teams and for the Medicine Hat College Rattlers or other post-secondary teams.   Former SEAVC athletes who have recently played for MHC Rattlers teams  (currently on roster*) include: Michelle Alberts, Kim Andjelic, Lauren Bardahl, Alex Chesley, Diana Davison, Paige Dean, Tiffany Donovan, Sage Fahlman, Mikayla Fritzke, Desirae Hemsing, Katie Hendeson, Anna LeClair, Amanda McGarry, Cari Munro, Kayla Stephenson, Karmen Tateson, Julien VanTol, Justin Freitag, Chris Sawicki and Brett Zinger.  Other relatively recent notable SEAVC graduates having played post-secondary include:  Jasmine Hemsing (NAIT)*, Marni MacKay (Mount Royal University)*, Cecilia Enestrom (Rochester Institute of Tech), Marie Muschiol (LCC, Cindy Black (LCC), Kristie Swetnam (LCC), Joel Schellenberg (Briercrest), Jessica Zinger (Briercrest), Natalie Weir (College of the Rockies), Janine Merkl (Grande Prairie College), Jill Walker (Louisiana Tech), Brandie Clark (University of Buffalo); Jill Herman (University of Ottawa), Kim Stonehouse (Montana State), Sara Brunner (Rocky Mountain College - Billings), Janice-Rose Reinbolt (Minot State University).   Numerous SEAVC alumni have gone on to coach with volleyball teams at the school, club and college level while a few have managed to gain coaching experience with Alberta Provincial Volleyball teams and/or Canadian National Volleyball team levels
