What is Milton Edge?
Milton Youth Volleyball Club – Home of Milton Edge is an incorporated non-profit, volunteer led organization. It was founded in 2015 by Milton residents Robert and Madhavi Bishop. The Bishops quickly realized that the newly opened Velodrome (built for the 2015 Pan Am games) presented a unique opportunity for a volleyball club, one that would promote development and create competitive opportunities for youth in the Milton and central Halton area. With the support and enthusiasm of other likeminded stakeholders, the Milton Edge was born! And with the continued support of dedicated volunteers, parents and the athlete community, the Edge has grown to become the largest co-ed volleyball club in Halton..

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