ALPINE SUMMIT, 3rd CTS tournament for the 16s Attitude Blase
This weekend's tournament found our 16's team starting slow struggling to perform the simplest of skills. We woke up in the 2nd and 3rd matches to win both against 18's teams and securing 2nd place in the pool. Championship day found us playing well against strong opponents with solid offense and defense systems. Proud of how we competed and how we were able to play in our new system with players in new positions. As our Libero said to me " We are playing better but we are playing stronger teams". I'm confident that the future holds a championship plaque for us. We look forward to the Oklahoma tournament at the end of the month.
3 Day Mile High Madness and 2nd CTS TOURNAMENT 2022/23 SEASON
This MLK holiday weekend the Spikes Attitude 16's competed in another CTS tournament. Day one saw the team compete strongly against older age group teams. Our serving and aggressive defense and transition play found us finishing 2nd in pool and putting us up against much stronger 18's teams for the following day's pool bracket.
This proved to be too much for our team as the skill level of our opponents was superior to our own and our error rate was just not acceptable. We learned a lot however about what changes need to occur with both our individual skill and team tactics when faced with a strong opponent.
Championship day found us in a hard fought 3 set loss with a very skilled 17's team. As a team, we now know what is needed and will move into a prolonged training phase that will prepare us for the next major competition in Oklahoma. Both the coaching staff and the playing group are confident that we can make the changes necessary to become a smarter, stronger, and more confident team moving forward.
We would like to thank all the family and friends who continue to support us at practice and tournaments on this journey to the AAU Nationals in June.

AVALANCHE HAVOC 1ST CTS TOURNAMENT 2022/23 SEASON
The team went into this tournament short handed with multiple players gone with injury and illness. We lost our only remaining middle player to a knee injury in the middle of the first game. We put together a plan to compete but lost every set that day. I asked them go home with positive attitudes and come back the next day ready to fight for every point. We fought hard and won every game. I couldn't have been more proud of their effort and attitude. This team will have many victories in their future due to their work ethic and support of each other.
