Since the inception of Pakmen Volleyball in 2002, boys and girls from Etobicoke have made up a large percent of the number of the players in our volleyball programs. Many have started in our Spikes learn to play volleyball program and moved up to our girls house league volleyball programs or boys volleyball training programs. Several have joined our advanced GTA Premier League or Pakmen Plus programs. The GTA Premier League attracts many girls from elementary schools in Etobicoke and high schools in Etobicoke. The same can be said for Pakmen Plus; only these students are boys.
Although we do not offer any programs in Etobicoke, over 600 of our members live in Etobicoke and make the short drive to Mississauga to participate in our nationally acclaimed program.
Several years ago, we partnered with the Toronto Volleyball Academy in Etobicoke. Under the leadership of Franco Rugosi, the Toronto Volleyball Academy has built a reputation of volleyball excellence.
Parents and players find our locations to be convenient, located near 401/407 and Mavis Road. But the biggest reason why boys and girls from Etobicoke play in our club is because of the Pakmen ‘Way’: the variety and quality of our programs. Pakmen Volleyball has programs for boys and girls from 6 to 18 years for all skill levels. Many of our players enjoyed enormous success in our program, and are now coaching in our club. Several of our Etobicoke players have gone on to play volleyball at the next level, including national beach volleyball team player Daniel Dearing and former UCLA libero Kristian Kuld.
Parents do not mind a 20 minute commute when the quality of program is excellent. They appreciate the variety of programs we offer for boys and girls, between the ages 6 to 18 years old. But what they appreciate the most is the quality of our programs. Our coaches are all professional, volleyball certified coaches who have received extensive training. They have an extensive knowledge of the skills, how to teach them and are the same coaches who have helped to coach our rep players to multiple National and Provincial Championships. More importantly, they are excellent ‘teachers’ who know how to motivate young people and make learning fun.
