TEAM

 

1981 Wetaskiwin Avalanche Juvenile Men's Volleyball Club

The Wetaskiwin Avalanche Juvenile Men’s Volleyball Team, a group of Wetaskiwin 16, 17 and 18 year olds, was successful in winning the 1981 Juvenile Provincial Volleyball Championships and the Bronze Medal at the National Juvenile Volleyball Championships.  They became the first team from Wetaskiwin in any sport to win a medal at a National Championship and remain the most decorated Volleyball Team in Wetaskiwin’s history.   In the beginning the Avalanche had not competed much, but played exhibition matches against University, College and Senior Men’s A teams.   Their competitive play so impressed a touring Senior Men’s 1st Division club from Germany and thereby brought international volleyball to Wetaskiwin.
