Where and when will games take place?
Gold Crown Field House | 150 S. Harlan St. Lakewood, CO 80226
Games will be scheduled on Saturday nights and Sundays.
Where will practices be held?
Rocky Mountain Athletic Center (Home of Juggernaut Volleyball) – This is a volleyball specific facility that provides all the necessary equipment we need as well as enough space to allow up to 5 teams to practice at once.
This is about a 25 minute drive from Chatfield H.S.
We will also hold one practice a week, Friday nights, at Chatfield High School.
Can carpools be arranged for practice?
Carpools are encouraged and we can discuss during the parent meeting.
What can we expect during player assessments/team formations and the parent meeting?
Assessments will be led by Chatfield Senior High Head Coach, Stephanie Schick, as well as by our GC Head coach and assistant coach. During the 2 hour session, players will be evaluated based on skill level, positions played and age/grade groups.
The following criteria will be used to assign players to teams:
- Results of player assessment, where applicable and/or player’s past performance
- Coach’s observation of a player during the first few practices.
- Coach’s observation during preseason scrimmage (if applicable)
Why don’t we only practice at Chatfield Senior High School?
Chatfield Senior High gives priority to its athletic program. The Chatfield Volleyball and Gymnastics teams will be using their gyms daily for practices and games. This year we are able to secure the gym for one night of practice.
How many days a week will we practice?
Two days a week, from 5:30- 7:30pm
Can I volunteer to coach a team?
Absolutely, parent volunteer coaches are needed to assist our Program Head Coach. It is a great way to get involved and you would receive a registration discount for your child. Volunteers will undergo a background check.
Who is the program geared toward?
This program is geared toward students who will be attending Chatfield Senior High School in the future. The schools that feed into Chatfield are:
- Deer Creek Middle School
- Falcon Bluffs Middle School
- Stony Creek
- Ute Meadows
* If your feeder High School does not offer this program, or if you prefer to play for Chatfield Senior High, you are welcome to participate on a Chatfield Gold Crown Team, as the league allows up to 40% of non–feeder players.
Can my daughter participate if she doesn't have experience?
Absolutely. We are excited to teach volleyball to anyone who wants to learn this amazing, fun sport.
