What is Milton Edge?

Milton Youth Volleyball Club – Home of Milton Edge is an incorporated non-profit, volunteer led organization. It was founded to promote development and create competitive volleyball opportunities for youth in the Milton, Ontario area. The Club’s goal is to provide high level opportunities for qualified boys and girls to further develop, train and compete in the Ontario Volleyball Association.

Strength in Community

With its dedicated volunteers, parents and athlete community, it has grown from its inception in only 2015 to become the largest co-ed volleyball club in Halton.

Our Objectives


To promote and develop the game of volleyball by making it available and accessible to as many young people as possible.


To help young athletes develop character by providing opportunities for mental, physical, social and leadership development.


To promote fun, fitness, skills development, team play, and healthy competition.

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.
