Mile High tournament Series.
With 4 players of the Z team missing for this last Mile High tourney of the season (TG) I brought in 4 like for like U13 players and good grief did they step up or what? These 13s will be Z team players next season and will travel with me to Nationals in Orlando. Based on their play today, I cannot wait! We finished 1st in our pool which had to be decided on points since 3 teams were in a three way. Thanks to coach Stace and his team who fought hard to win their game in a nail biting 3 sets pushing us on top. I promised coach Stace 2 free scrimmages evening with our Z team if they were to win. I will keep my promise and his team will come to our facility like Brittney's Aces and Sparks Volleyball Academy U15 Black to scrimmage our U14 Z team and help us prepare for our trip to AAU 46th Girls' Nationals in Orlando mid-June. We lost the Final 19/25 to a very decent team who drove 4 hours from the Alamosa area this morning "Valley Fusion" congratulations girls, well played!
Once again no silver medals for second place, it says a lot. A final in one set only to 25 says even more. They might have a new name for next season but it will be the same. Leopards don't change their spots. Therefor Spikes is launching its own league tournament series next season the "Spikes Colorado Series".

Coaches, players and especially parents who pay the fees deserve full respect, always! Nuff said
Spikes Z team finished first in their pool after an unbeaten run: 25/15, 25/16 - 25/10, 25/18 - 25/21, 25/15, straight into a final and were rightly humbled 16/25 after a succession of mistakes. No big deal, lesson learned we move on with a smile.
Firstly I would like to send on behalf of my entire academy my best wishes to the great player from Brittney's Aces team who got a nasty concussion at today's Platinum Division tournament and sending good positive vibes for a swift recovery. BIG HUG to you girl!
Today belongs to Spikes HS Laura's team who took Gold in the Gold Div. with a nail biting finale ending at 29 -27. Well done girls! Well done coach Laura!
Spikes HS teams fought hard to earn respectable 4th and 5th place respectively both going up a Division, Pasky in the top Platinum and Laura's in the Gold.
R. needed a well deserved "out cold" nap after the first 2 sets of Game one LOL! It's 10 AM Girl !!!!
Spikes™ HS team Pasky takes Gold in the Gold division after a truly hard, though, competitive but very exciting and enjoyable play: (L25-23 / W20-25/ W14/16); (W15-25/ L25-22 / W8-15); (W25-18/ W25/15) and Final W 25-17 and 25-20).
our sister team: Spikes™ HS team Laura takes another well desreved first place and Gold in the Silver division moving up after winning Gold in the Bronze division at the previous tournament!
Spikes™ HS team Laura takes well deserved 1st place and Gold medal. With 2 great new players joining coach Laura just in time to compensate for some player's absence due to illness. Great effort and fantastic result. Pasky's HS team on the other hand had a tough but very useful experience in their tournament on the other side of town in the top Platinum Division. Our U16 team with 2 U14 and 2 U15 played against two U17 club teams and one U18 Varsity team and kept within a very tight and respectable score spread.
WOW !!!! Spikes Z team wins Gold in the top Platinum division after gold in the Gold division in December. They played in true Zoe spirit..had an unbeaten run and won a nail biting final against the strong Brittney Aces 25.21 and 25.19. Zoe was smiling I can guarantee you she was, I could see her cheeky grin so clearly.
And in the afternoon wave, Jumpstart® U13 Elite takes once again 2nd place and Silver. They fought hard only to lose the final at 9.30pm in 3 games. Fantastic performance from our youngest team.
Great start of the season for Spikes™ and the JumpStart® Volleyball academy.
Spikes Z™ team (U14) and JumpStart® U13 Elite team take first and second place, Gold and Silver respectively in the 12/15/2018 Mile High tournament Gold Division!
Spikes™ HS Pasky takes 4th place in Division 1 whilst Spikes™ HS Laura takes second place and a well deserved Silver Medal in Division 2 of the 12/8/2018 Mile High Tournament.
️Love these girls....all of them.
