The 2017-2018 season is in full swing and our Tigers are competing each weekend against a variety of clubs throughout Ontario. Not only are the Tigers competing in the Ontario Volleyball Association, some of our Tigers teams are participating in Tigers Invitational matches and the South West Volleyball League.
Our coaches, parents, and club executive are volunteering their time to help provide a fun and active opportunity for the youth of our community. Not only are these people helping with the tournaments, they are dedicating their time to get these young athletes ready to compete by driving them to practice, teaching them nutrition, and ensuring they understand what is needed to be a healthy active player.
Be sure to visit an upcoming tournament in your area to see what it means to be a Tiger.
The Waterloo Tigers 17U Girls Black team participated in the OVA Provincial Cup this past weekend. They seemed to cruise through the round robin matches defeating Niagara Rapids Summit (25-15, 25-18) and Niagara Fury 16U (25-17, 26-24), leaving them with a longer rest period after lunch. This extra time off helped propel them to victory over Simcoe Extreme (25-22, 25-13) in the quarter final match. The semi-final matchup pitted our Tigers against the winner of Pool B, SVC Stingers, and our Tigers swept them handily 25-8, 25-13.
The hardest matchup of the afternoon was with the top ranked team coming into this tournament – a 16u group from a rival club – Scorpions Fusion.
The final match went to three sets where the Scorpions prevailed. The scores were: 25-18, 21-25, 15-11 in favour of the Scorpions leaving the Tigers with a Silver medal.
Congratulations Tigers! This is a wonderful start to the season!
This past weekend found the Waterloo Tigers 13U Black team playing their first tournament of the season at the Waterloo Tigers Invitational 13U Exhibition Matches hosted out of Forest Heights Collegiate Institute in Kitchener. With four new players, they took the first two games to find their footing and the line ups that worked well to compliment each other. Taking the last three teams by storm, they finished the day tied for 4th place. Looking forward to seeing this team rock the OVA Provincial Cup tournament at Rockway Mennonite Collegiate in Kitchener this coming weekend!
