Coaches Wanted!

Volunteers are an essential part of youth sports! Our Club is looking for coaches willing to volunteer their time and work with the next generation of athletes to help develop their volleyball skills and their passion for the game!

Are you an adult player who wants to share your knowledge with young players and show them the next step in their progression?

Are you a parent with some experience or a willingness to attend training and work with a mentor-coach, to learn together while teaching new players the basics?

Are you a high school player and want to be a youth assistant coach, and can share your knowledge with a younger team and inspire them with your skills?

Are you attending or finishing a university program and want volunteer experience on your resume, especially if you’re headed to working with youth in the future?

There is always a need for passionate coaches (skills NOT required!). We will help with training, a mentor-coach, or whatever we can do to have as many teams on the court for the season.

NOTE: You must be able to pass a police criminal and vulnerable sector check.

If interested, see more information or complete the application form on the Volunteer page. If you want further information or have any questions please contact us at, use the Coach Application Form here, or call us at 519-774-3875.

Thank you!

We’re Getting Closer!!!

As the Ontario Volleyball Association (OVA) Step 1 Return to Play Protocols have been set, BYVC has begun prepping the beach courts in anticipation of starting Competitive Training and House League soon!! Stay tuned to hear more in the coming days!!!

BYVC Beach Volleyball 2021

Who’s ready to start thinking about summer??

BYVC is starting to put together some high-level tentative plans regarding our outdoor beach volleyball programs for 2021!!!

Disclaimer: These plans are subject to change to ensure compliance with any and all COVID protocols put in place by Brant County, OVA and BYVC.

As in the past, there will be two streams – competitive and developmental.  Both streams will be run out of our beach facility at Green Lane Park in Paris, beginning the week of May 15.  All sessions will run from 6:30 to 8:00pm.

Both streams will have player caps. Due to COVID uncertainty, initially, we will be taking names on a Wait List. We’ll collect fees once we are closer to an actual start date. If we are forced to reduce numbers, then the reduction will be done based on position on the Wait List, so REGISTER EARLY to avoid disappointment!!

Competitive Program

Competitive will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays and go until Provincials (typically August Long Weekend).  Tuesdays will be “skill night” and Thursdays will be “game night”.  These sessions are intended for players who are interested in playing on the OVA Beach Tour or experienced players who want to sharpen their all round skills for the next indoor season.

Developmental Program

The Development stream will run for 8 weeks on Wednesdays. The developmental stream is for players who are just being introduced to the outdoor game. Early sessions will focus mostly on individual volleyball skills.  Over the course of the program the focus will shift to game play, possibly with some minor modifications to encourage and lengthen rallies.  This session would also be of interest to younger competitive indoor players who want to learn beach but can’t commit to playing on the OVA tour.
