Update on Paid Positions and 2016 Club Fees

At our November Board Meeting, a number of key decisions regrading the organization of our club were discussed.  The Board of Directors has approved a number of paid positions to ensure the long-term viability of BCO Volleyball Club.  While our club has managed to operate well in the past on the reliance of volunteers, increasing demands in relation to administrative tasks as well as the implementation of Development Camps and the Beach Program has resulted in BCO becoming a 12-month-a-year operation.  For full details on the paid positions and changes to the 2016 Club Team Fees, click here.

NOTE:  BCO has a reciprocal agreement with North Shore Stars Volleyball Club and does not require transfer forms between our two clubs.

Fall Youth Programs Open for Registration

BCO is offering a number of clinics this Fall to introduce and teach basic volleyball skills to elementary school aged athletes.

All camps are directed by a NCCP certified BCO Head Coach.

NEIL SALKUS ( Dec 11, 1944 - May 23, 2014 )
It is with a very heavy heart that we share with you the news of the death of Neil Salkus, one of the founders of BCO Volleyball Club.  An icon in our North Shore volleyball community, Neil served as BCO President for many years, as a mentor for many of our current coaches, and as a coach for countless numbers of young players at BCO and at Handsworth Secondary School.  Neil always devoted himself to others and we will forever be grateful.  He has a great man.

We express our deepest condolences to Neil's family and friends.
