Eastside Ice was formed in 2014 with one goal in mind - to create a club where girls could play volleyball all year long, but at a fraction of the cost of the larger clubs while still being competitive! We compete in 6-8 tournaments per season, primarily in the Rochester and Buffalo areas, with the older teams participating in a few travel tournaments within 3 hours of Rochester. These girls train hard, they have fun, and have proven that you don't have to spend a lot, to have a great experience. We have consistently performed in the top brackets in the region and our 16U team was invited to the Bid Qualifier for a chance to go to Nationals this past season.
Our season runs from December 1st - April 30th which allows our players to STILL compete in spring sports for their schools. We practice 2 nights per week in Walworth & Ontario and tournaments are on the weekends.
COACHES - they are awesome! Our coaches have several years of club and collegiate play and are truly supportive of the girls, their individual skills and what each girl brings to the team. Several coaches have multiple years of club and school coaching experience and several training and coaching certifications as well. They are respectful, fun and the girls relate so well to them. We are proud to have such great coaches for our young players! All of our coaches are background checked, IMPACT and SafeSport certified.
Because of all these factors, our first season was extremely successful! So successful, that season 2 fielded 4 teams, and our third season has 5 teams! Season 3s 16u team competed in the Bid with a chance to attend and compete at Nationals. Our upcoming season 4 is promising to be our strongest and most dynamic yet. We have married the best parts of these last 3 seasons with the promise that season 4 will bring lots of talent, tremendous skill growth and chemistry on the court that is very hard to find.
Season 4 will field the following age groups - 12U (Developmental and Travel), 14U, 15U, 16U & 17U programs.
What's our motto??? Play HARD. Have FUN. LIVE VOLLEYBALL. These girls love the game, and it shows on their faces each and every day.
