A Message from the Founder

In 1985 a new volleyball club was formed and took to the road to compete in OVA events across the province. The Maverick Volleyball Club was an opportunity for east end athletes to get a higher level of volleyball competition and coaching to help them reach for their goals.

The Maverick name was used to signify a new way of doing things in Ottawa, and this theme was evident in the choosing of names for the teams; Mustangs, Longhorns, Posse, Colts and Gamblers appeared at OVA competitions and OCVL leagues.

Now affectionately known as the "MAVS" our programs are taking many different directions. From the addition of the High Performance program for developing elite athletes, to the Developmental camps. Key to our growth has been our innovative 8-week programs for beginners <Smashball, Kids-Youth & Teen Volley>, the house & city leagues, and our full array of competitive rosters – we have something for everyone in youth volleyball.

All of this has not caused us to become complacent. Working with several key individuals in the volleyball community, our programs match with Volleyball Canada's new Long Term Athlete Development Model in order to get the most from and for our players and coaches. Partnering with companies such as Capital Strength Training systems and MarbleLabs Inc. have helped us improve the quality of our supplemental training.

Over the past three seasons we were one of only 3 clubs in Ontario to become first certified as Volleyball Canada Accredited Clubs. A mark of validation awarded for the broad scope of programs and services we offer.

Our dedication to our coaches and their growth and development can be found maininly in the increased number and level of certified coaches along with many who go on to coach in Provincial and National teams.

Not to be left behind in the summer, the Mavericks are the only club in the region to offer an organized beach league as well as specialized beach training programs.
With 30+ teams already in operation we have once again grown and are Canada's largest competitive Volleyball club and we are not done yet.
Keep your eyes on us, we won't disappoint.
