Under 14 club volleyball teams from Peace River, Dawson Creek, Grimshaw, Grande Prairie, and the Northern B.C. Ice were at North Peace Secondary School on Saturday to see how they stacked up against each other in a tournament. In the end it was Grimshaw emerging as the winners over Dawson Creek.
As for the Ice they had a younger squad at the event. Even though it was an under 14 tournament the majority of the players were 11 and 12 years old.
“We’re a pretty new team. It’s a big development year for us. We want them to get some experience and touches on the ball,” said coach Darren Schmidt. “This is the third tournament we’ve been in this year. They’ve been doing well. The first tournament was rough but we’ve made a lot of progress throughout the season.”
The team finished last in the standings but look forward to continuing to develop their skills.
