15U Vipers win Bronze in 16U tournament!


Our 15U team had one of the best tournaments of their season this past Saturday, as they played up in the 16U OVA Bugarski Cup and won the BRONZE! The girls started by finishing second in their pool, only falling to Ancaster Lions 16U. Vipers won the first set with a very close 29-27 score, but because there were 4 teams in their pool it came down to point differentials in 2 sets and Ancaster won by more points the second set. A highlight of pool play was when our girls won a set 25-1!! We lost the first point of the game but then served 24 serves in a row and played excellent defence to protect our side of the court!

In the quarter-finals our girls had a tough cross over against Hamilton Smash 15U Teal who are ranked 54th going into the 15U OVA Championships (we are ranked 89th out of 140) and we came out on top in a very close 3 sets, with a final score of 15-10! After a two game break, the girls were matched up against the strong Predators Ignite 15U in the semis, ranked 34th in Ontario! Our girls gave it their all in very close sets, but unfortunately lost in the 3rd set with a score of 13-15. Both teams played amazing offence and defence, and players from the Predators team were impressed with how competitive we were!

Not only did these girls fight hard all day but they endured one of the longest OVA tournaments we have ever seen! Due to all of the close games throughout the day their final Bronze medal match didn't finish until 8:00pm! Despite how tired and hungry the girls were they brought their A game right until the very end. They were matched up against Ancaster Lions again, but this time were able to pull out the win in a very close 3 set match, with the final score being 17-15! We are so proud of these girls for fighting so hard throughout such a long and hard tournament. This tournament was excellent preparation for the provincials in two weeks, and we look forward to seeing them bring everything they learned on Saturday to the court in Waterloo!

Our 16U girls also played well this tournament! Unfortunately they were matched up against the very tough 1st ranked Predators team in the quarters, but then went on to win 5th beating the 2nd ranked Hamilton Smash team in 3 sets! Well done Vipers!

15U take Bronze!


15U Vipers are back at it again with a great OVA tournament finish! Our girls won 4/5 games in two sets on Saturday, only falling to Brant Tornados Orange in the semi-finals. Earlier in the season when we faced this team in the semis we beat them in a close 3 sets, but unfortunately this time Brant came out on top and later went on to take gold. Coming off of the semis our girls played great in the BRONZE medal final, taking the win! 

We are very proud of this team for finishing in the top 4 in all four of their OVA tournaments this season, and landing in the top 3 in all but the first! They are really breaking through this season and we know they definitely have more to come! Seeing the potential in these girls is so exciting and we look forward to seeing them play in the provincials and in Pittsburgh at the end of the season! Go Vipers!  

13U Vipers score OVA Silver!


Today our 13U team had their best tournament of the season, and their volleyball careers! They started out strong beating both MVC 12U and Hamilton Smash 12U in the morning to get 1st in their pool. They were undefeated all the way to the semi-finals where they faced Niagara Rapids Summit, winning an exciting match with scores of 23-25, 25-20 and 16-14! The girls then went up against top ranked Halton Hurricanes Blue for the gold! Our girls didn't go down without a fight, taking the Hurricanes to 3 sets and hustling the entire game! A SILVER medal is such an exciting way for this team to end their OVA regular season! We are so proud of these girls and we know that they will continue to work hard at practice in preparation for the OVA Provincial Championships in April! 

16U Vipers take OVA Bronze!


This past Saturday our 16U Vipers demonstrated teamwork and dedication, bringing home the BRONZE medal at the OVA McGregor Cup! We've always known that these girls had great potential so it very exciting to see them rewarded two weekends in a row!

The girls entered this tournament ranked 7th but that didn't stop them from defeating 6th ranked Waterloo Tigers Red in two straight sets in the morning, landing them 2nd place in their pool. The team then went on to defeat the Guelph Jr. Gryphons 15U Black team in the quarter finals with scores of 25-21 and 25-12. Unfortunately in the semis our girls fell short to a tough 2nd ranked Waves team, the team that later took gold. However, our girls were not done yet! They went up against 4th ranked MVC 15U and defeated them in 2 sets with scores of 25-20 and 25-22, securing the bronze medal!

This is also an exciting milestone for the Grimsby Volleyball Association as all 4 of our teams now have OVA medals for this season! Making the 2017/2018 season our most competitive season yet! We'd like to wish our 13U Vipers good luck in their final OVA tournament tomorrow as well! 

Go Vipers!

16U Silver!


Last weekend our 16U team brought home a SILVER medal from the Markham Youth Volleyball Exhibition Tournament!

We are so proud of these girls and we look forward to seeing how they take on the second half of their season! We will be cheering them on as they compete in the OVA McGregor Cup tomorrow!

Good luck to our 14, 15 and 16U teams competing in tournaments this weekend!

Today was such an exciting day for our Viper family!

Our 14U girls fought hard at their exhibition tournament today bringing home the GOLD medal! We are so proud of this team's consistency and drive so far this season! 

Our 15U girls also had a great day at their OVA tournament! They went undefeated all morning, winning their first three games in two sets. Our girls played great, only dropping sets to a tough 14U Hurricanes Blue team in the semis with scores of 21-25, 25-17 and 12-15. Moving into the Bronze medal game the girls had a bit of a slow start against the 14U Niagara Rapids Summit but managed to come back from a score of 18-24 winning 27-25, keeping the parents and coaches on the edge of their seats! The girls then went on to finish the second set with a convincing score of 25-18 securing our BRONZE medal!

We are so proud of all of our girls! Congratulations to the parents, coaches and players! Way to go Vipers!

They still had the energy and motivation to bring their A game to the 3rd place final. Our girls came out strong and beat the Hurricanes team they saw in the morning in two straight sets! Way to go Vipers!

The girls just came off of a tough and exciting semi-final game against Brant Tornados beating them in 3 sets with scores of 23-25, 25-19 and 15-5! The girls reached a new record serving percentage of 92.5%, only missing 20 serves all day! Our hard work is definitely paying off and we are so proud of the improvements they have made already this season! Way to go Vipers!
