Our mission is to provide young, athletes in Yellowknife and the surrounding area with the opportunity to learn solid fundamental volleyball skills, practice those skills and to provide opportunities to showcase these skills in a competitive team environment. Through a commitment to training, our young athletes will develop their volleyball skills, while also developing life skills which will help them succeed both on and off the court. Our athletes will be given every opportunity to experience success as a team through territorial and national level competitions.
When we started this club in 2009, our vision was to offer volleyball programs for young female athletes from as early as four years old through to 18 years of age, all under one club. This was a large undertaking and had never happened in volleyball in the Northwest Territories. We had a five year goal of attaining this vision and we are very proud to have accomplished that goal.
Moving forward, our goal is to continue to provide the quality programs we have offered in the past and to expand on that by adding boys teams and beach programming. We want to do everything we can to expose the young athletes in, and around Yellowknife to high level volleyball training and competition, in all aspects.
Along with developing athletes, we want to continue to develop young coaches which will help make the Potential Volleyball Club sustainable for years to come.
