Spiking in the great outdoors

Voorheesville native Joshua O'Brien just started participating in CDGD events this summer, and he said he's already hooked.

"It's a lot more intensive. You have to be good at everything," said O'Brien, who plays club-level indoor volleyball at college. "[On a team], you only have to be good in one or two things such as hitting, blocking or serving. Here, you have to be good in all areas."

"It's a little bit more fun [than indoor volleyball] because you're getting more contact with the ball," said Mink, a 2005 Colonie Central High School graduate.

The CDGD club has two more tournaments at Collins Park on its schedule, Aug. 15 and 16 and Sept. 19 and 20. The entry fee is $40 per team if paid the Thursday before the tournament starts and $60 per team thereafter. The entry fee does not include the AVP Next membership, which is required for all club tournaments and is a one-time $10 fee.
