With a lot of excitement and buzz about York Region’s newest Volleyball Club going into the 2015-2016 season; the club directors, staff, and coaches were very eager to start the first year with a bang!
Starting off the season with tryouts, we saw a staggering 300+ athletes from all over York Region and beyond vying for a spot on one of the many Venom Teams. After a very lengthy offer and signing period, Venom started it’s first year with 9 teams. These 9 teams along with our dedicated coaching staff went off to break records for a first year club in York Region. Here some of the many highlights our club was able to accomplish this year:
1) Largest 1st year club in York Region with 9 teams
2) Most Medals won by a first year club in York Region with 13 OVA medals (2 Gold, 3 Silver and 8 Bronze Medals)
3) 2 Provincial Gold Medals (17u girls and 15u boys)
4) 4 National Medals (1 Gold and 3 Silver)
5) 2 House leagues operating in Markham and Vaughan with over 30 participants in both sessions
As our first year has come to an end, our focus has been transitioned to Beach training and Summer camps. Anyone interested in joining can register here: http://venomvolleybal.wpengine.com/campsclinics/
Venom was able to set a high bar and standard for itself and is looking to expand on it’s success for the 2016/2017 season. Below you will find some information in regards to what Venom has coming up for the 2016/2017 season:
-June-August: Beach Volleyball training

We would like to thank all of our dedicated staff, coaches, assistant coaches, volunteers, parents and athletes. Without the hard work of everyone involved, Venom wouldn’t have been able to have the success it has had thus far.
We hope to see you on the court !
