Our mission is to help these athletes and coaches reach the international stage while supporting the development of indoor and beach volleyball throughout Ontario. We strive to deliver the best personal growth experiences through a holistic approach based on the Volleyball Canada Long Term Development model. We believe that maximizing one’s athletic potential goes hand in hand with creating lifelong friendships and memories. This belief transpires through all that we do.
