Announcement & Press Release
The two local youth Volleyball Clubs here in Kingston are thrilled to announce their amalgamation, effective August 1, 2019. Kingston Volleyball Club and Pegasus Volleyball Club are joining forces and will operate with the best practices of both clubs, making the joint operation bigger and better than ever before. Pegasus Club President, Brenda Willis, said, "We feel this is in the best interests of Kingston athletes, as combining our talent pools, not just in terms of athletes, but also coaches, administrators and facilities, will allow us to train, compete and represent Kingston at the highest competitive level possible. According to Matt Somerville, President of Kingston Volleyball Club, "Our merger makes sense on many levels and we will work together to ensure there is not only no drop in competitive opportunities in our OVA Rep. programs, but rather, that we grow the sport and offer additional programming."
Moving forward Willis and Somerville will function as co-president's, under the new club name, Kingston Rock Volleyball Club. The new club will operate with no less than five current or former University Head Coaches who are NCCP Performance Coach (former level 3) certified. This brings tremendous expertise to the helm of Kingston Rock, offering volleyball athletes in Kingston exceptional training, based on Sport Canada and Volleyball Canada's long-term athlete development principles (LTAD).
The club will be launching its new branding, logo and uniforms later this summer.
