U16s Finish with 4 and 3 Record in OCs!

BYVC U16 put their hearts out on the court during the Ontario Championships (April 17-19) at RIM Park!!

From finishing first in their pool on the first day to fighting to the very last point during their final game, coaches could not be happier with how their athletes played during OCs and throughout the entire season.

A medal wasn’t in the cards, but each player showed talent and determination throughout the entire weekend and never gave up. From starting out in Trillium to moving up into the championship division we could not be happier with this team and what they have accomplished this year. Way to go U16!

U14s Place 5th on OCs!

BYVC U14 Girls made incredible strides from the start of the season to the end .

The team placed 5th at the Ontario Championships (April 17) and was the only team who beat the gold medal team!

With fearlessness and a never give up attitude they battled their way to a fun and successful season.

Congrats!!

SILVER FOR U16s!!!

Congratulations to the U16 girls who captured a silver medal at their first tournament last weekend. Tornadoes won 5-0 in round robin and put up a tough fight in their final game against Smash Raiders but fell short with scores of 25-19 and 25-18.

With a small but mighty team, each player showed pure dedication throughout the entire day to represent Brantford and make their coaches proud. Coaches want to shout out Kimberly for her commitment to defense and going for every ball, Kelsea for her incredible offence, Leah for setting up her team with perfect passes, Maeve for adjusting and thriving on a new position, Lizzy for being reliable and consistent in every spot on the court, Scarlette for her wicked attacks and serves, and Reese for setting her team up to constant victory.

By virtue of their win, they are promoted to the Championship Division for their next set of round robin games and we are looking forward to seeing what they achieve for the rest of the season!!

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 info@BYVC.ca, use the Coach Application Form here, or call us at 519-774-3875.

Thank you!
