Markham Thunder will not be offering 2022/2023 rep volleyball this season. This is not a reflection of the athletes involved but more the club inability to provide adequate personnel, coaches, and facilities to able to operate and run rep volleyball teams.
Should you or your child is looking to join a rep team in the Markham and Richmond Hill area, please consider and visit Venom Volleyball Club website (www.venomvolleyball.ca) for additional detail and information.
Markham Thunder will continue to provides training with fundamental and instructional volleyball training to kids between 8-13 years old. Check out our Youth Training section for more details.
Markham Thunder Volleyball Club was created in 2014 and formed with the vision and goal to provide young athletes and parents in the Markham and surrounding area with care, respect, and providing sound and proper training to each and every athlete with caring, knowledgeable, and competence coaches. Markham Thunder continues to strive to be a small club that operates and believes in the ‘close-knit’ notion where each athlete and person in the club matter, treated equally, and with the same level of care. A small club but big on possibilities.
To train and focus athletes on overall fundamental and skills development to compete in the Ontario Volleyball Association (OVA) and as well building strong connections on and off the court. Thru hard-work and dedication, enable athletes to compete to the best of their ability, building confidence, and instilling the love of the game.
In broader goals in education and development, we focus on the development of the individual and not only on the development of technical skills and mental skills to ensure safety and allowing athletes to compete to the best of their ability and at the highest level in the Ontario Volleyball Association. In addition through training and competition, athletes learn about the importance of key values such as:
- fair play,
- respect for themselves and others, and
- adherence to rules.
