Feb 12, 2011. The DA 14U Girls Black team travelled to Trenton on February 12, 2011 to play in the15U Challenge Cup tournament.  It was an exciting day which resulted in the girls bringing home a silver medal!!!

The day started with pool play.  Their first set was against Phenix and DA won 25-19. The second set had Phenix putting on the pressure with a leading score until almost the end of the game when DA pulled ahead at 25-24 and DA won a very exciting set 28-26.  The second match of pool play put DA up against Peterborough Thunder.  DA lost both sets, 25-15 and 25-13. This resulted in a 3rd place finish after pool play.

The girls moved on to crossovers with determination. They faced the DRVC Orange team and won the first set and then played another exciting set with DA winning 28-26.

DA moved on to the semi-finals meeting up with Phenix again.  The DA team played consistently, showed great hits and amazing serves.  They won both sets 25-18 and 25-19 which had them heading to the finals to face the Stingers. The first set kept everyone on the edge of their seats.  DA had a strong lead but the stingers fought hard to tie it up at 21-21.  It was point by point with DA falling short and lost the set, 27-25.  The second set Stingers won 25-16 to win the match.

DA 14U finished in second place and won a silver medal.

Well done!  Congratulations girls and once again a big thank you to their coaches, Rob, Jeff and Camille.


14U Girls Black Team Wins Gold

Posted in 2010-2011, 2011 Girls 14U Black on February 8, 2011 by kprinzen


The girls were pumped for their 1st 14U tournament, the Provincial Cup in Orillia on November 27, 2010 and won gold.  They won all of their sets, winning their pool.  They confidently won the crossover match.  Then they faced the Etobicoke Titans Black 14U.  Having watched the Titan’s previous game, our team knew this would be the challenge of the day, and it really was!  The excessive height of the challenging team did not cause intimidation as the girls fought to win the first set, 25-19.  They had an early lead in the second set but at 8-8, the Titan’s took the lead to win 17-25.  The 3rd, tie breaking game, was an exhilarating set, tied at 5-5, 8-8 and 12-12.  DA took the lead and won 15-12.  They then went on to win the gold medal match against Burlington Blaze.

Thanks to the coach’s for their dedication and for enduring the long day.

Nov 20, 2010. What A Great Start To The Year For Our DA U14 Girls Black Team


Girls (15U) Provincial Cup, Trenton, On


The girls started the day out slow losing the match to DRVC Orange but then came back and won both sets against Peterborough Thunder.  This put them in second place for pool play.

Once the nerves settled down and the girls applied what Rob has taught them.  They won the crossover match and then played our very own DA 15U Red team.  It was a tough match and very exciting, and ended up losing both of the sets, 21-25 and 23-25.

We met up with DRVC Orange again and won an exciting tie breaker set to win the Bronze.  Well done!

A special thank you to the coaches, Rob, Jeff and Camille!

What a great start to the 2010-2011 volleyball season.
