With course planning for next year now underway, please keep in mind that participants in the Richmond Oval Volleyball Canada Centre of Excellence are eligible to receive high school PE and strength and conditioning credits through the Richmond Virtual School. This frees up time in the athlete’s schedule to manage the rest of their studies, rest, recover and train with their club and high school teams.
Many of the top players in BC and on the youth national team from BC have come through our program or another VCCE program and credit the programs towards their success. Our goal is to expand this development to even more athletes.

A big congratulations to our youngest Thunder players on a very successful first tournament! While showing great team spirit and practicing all their new skills at the FVVC tournament this past weekend, our 12Us played 6 matches (12 games) and split 3 matches while winning all the others (won 9/12). Most of the teams were U13 and they even pulled out a solid win against the Force U13 top team! Way to go 12Us!
Congratulations to our very own Claire Lloyd – President and Co-founder of Thunder Volleyball Club – on receiving the Volleyball BC Community Sport Administrator Award on Saturday, February 4th to a standing ovation.
Claire co-founded the Vancouver Thunder Volleyball Club in 2000 to provide an opportunity for athletes to participate in volleyball for both the pursuit of excellence and the enjoyment of the sport.
Under Claire’s leadership, Thunder Volleyball Club has evolved to be one of the strongest clubs in the province, organizationally as well as overall team performance. Our youth have benefited enormously from Claire’s continued efforts in establishing excellence in volleyball programs in the Vancouver community.
