We are a volunteer, non-profit sports organization, providing volleyball opportunities for youth in the Greater Hamilton area. We are affiliated with the Ontario Volleyball Association.

We offer competitive (rep) teams as a well as a development program and house league.

Our club is led by a volunteer Board of Directors, which is elected by the club’s members at its Annual General Meetings. The Board meets regularly and reports to the membership at the AGM. The Board follows and applies the club’s Constitution and By-laws.

If you have a concern about one of our programs or teams, please direct it to the coach or administrator in charge of that program. If your concern is not resolved, you may contact the Board. If you have a compliment, please let the coach or administrator know, and feel free to pass it on to the Board as well!
