In an effort to better align the athlete skill level, we will be running separate sessions for the older or more advanced athletes from the younger up and coming athletes. This will provide an environment that will better align the athletes and enable them to keep purpose and tempo higher. We reserve the right to evaluate and fit the athlete into the group where we believe they will benefit the most.

Again, the program will run Monday through Thursday in the evenings. Basic number of sessions will be two to three times a week for each age group. Gym availability will be the deciding factor on a 3rd session.

What is Broaden Your Horizons?

At the conclusion of every season, the Club is asked whether there are camps or developmental sessions available for our current athletes. The Club offers a wide array of developmental opportunities namely the Young Mavs programs and our Competitive Beach teams. To bridge the gap between our Beach and our youth development we brought in our Broaden Your Horizon program in the summer of 2016. Broaden your Horizons provides an opportunity for High Performance Athletes looking to get their game to the next level.

The “BROADEN Your HORIZON” skills development sessions will provide an opportunity for athletes to work on specific skills over an extended period of time. An environment that promotes intensity, purpose and volume contacts combined with low athlete-coach ratio and ongoing instruction. Elements will be delivered in a whole training concept to allow flow between elements and increase game sense. Focus will be on specific weaknesses of athletes as well giving them an opportunity to expand their individual skill set and “Broaden their Horizon”.


Broaden Your Horizons is geared to female athletes, specifically those who will be looking to continue in our High Performance or Pre-High Performance stream in September. To enhance the program quality, participation numbers will be limited and based on size of venue, 3 courts vs 2 courts and number of coaches. In 2018 we were able to maintain a 6:1 ratio athletes to coaches.

The program targets birth years 2006 – 2002.

Birth years 2006: Spots will be available for those indicating an interest in trying out for our pre- hp program in the fall and based on recommendations from coaches.

Those athletes currently in our 14U-17U competitive stream will be considered on recommendations of coaches.

*Limited space will be available to keep instructor to athlete ratio low. We reserve the right to limit our registration and make selections based on a best fit for our


Intention is to run the Program in the evenings from July 2nd to August 22nd, 8 weeks total. Previously the program ran out of Franco-Cité as well CC Mer Bleue. Location is still to be determined and will be communicated as soon as we receive confirmation from the school Board.

The program will again be offered 4 evenings a week, Monday through Thursday. There will be no flexibility on nights this year as we are separating the younger and older athletes. The schedule will be predetermined for each group. The reason for the evening program was to avoid conflict with our day camps, Competitive Beach and Strength and Conditioning

 Tentative schedule but we will have to wait for official confirmation of venue.

Note: Ideally, we would like to place athletes with the group that we feel would be a best fit not only for themselves but taking into account the other athletes. We reserve the right to make that recommendation.


Program Lead will be John Spack, 28 years coaching experience with all age groups and current Maverick High Performance Coach and Christian Tanguay, 16 years coaching experience and 10 years with the Mavericks in their HP Program.

Assisting Coaches as in the past will include current Maverick High Performance Coaches as well current and former USport/CCAA/NCAA/Professional athletes. Athlete-Coach ratio will be approximately 6:1.


We attempt to keep cost as low as possible but still maintain the highest possible standard for the program. Final cost can only be determined once venues and coaches are confirmed. We hope to keep cost between $420-$450 plus Amilia processing fees (approx.. $15).
