What is Milton Edge?

Milton Youth Volleyball Club – Home of Milton Edge is an incorporated non-profit, volunteer led organization.

Our Pillars



Coaching Excellence

Coaching Excellence is a set of behaviours that guide and motivate young athletes to work towards high levels of athletic and team performance. When employed properly these coaching skills create an enjoyable atmosphere conducive to fun, friendship and athletic excellence.

Personal Volleyball Excellence for Club Athletes

Personal Volleyball Excellence for Club Athletes is recognition that every athlete has a unique set of talents. These talents can be developed into specific skills that high performance teams need. As competitive volleyball becomes more specialized, athletes can improve their specific volleyball strengths thereby contributing to team performance.

Teamwork Excellence

When a group of highly skilled athletes form a cohesive team, they often succeed beyond the sum of their individual potential.
