The Ballhawks remains one of the most successful clubs and oldest in Ontario due in large part to its group of dedicated, knowledgeable, volunteer coaches.  Our coaches put the hours in the gym for the love of the game and to see young athletes develop their volleyball skills.  If you're passionate about volleyball and want to give back to the next generation, we'd love to work with you!

If you are interested in joining our coaching group, please contact us at with a summary of your experience and availability.
