Who We Are

Forever fearless | Forever family | forever a duck

Est. 1996 - Our history

Established in 1996, Ducks Volleyball Club started as a drop-in volleyball opportunity for female athletes in Coquitlam. Initially, the Ducks’ purpose was to provide female athletes with equal opportunities in sport, expose them to volleyball competition, and to create positive social experiences. Within a few years, the Ducks grew rapidly due to the overwhelming increase in passionate volleyball athletes. In response to this demand, the Ducks’ philosophy evolved and created a structured system to facilitate the growth of volleyball throughout the Tri-Cities, Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. Continuing to evolve, the structure in place today provides professional and elite training for both male and female athletes from all over the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. While our indoor club program remains central to our focus, we also offer year round training through camps, clinics, and a highly successful beach volleyball program to ensure our athletes receive the very best training opportunities throughout the year. We provide athletes with the opportunity to develop and reach their individual physical, mental, and technical potential. We provide athletes opportunities to develop strong leadership skills, not only on the court, but also in the community. We want our athletes to become the best athletes and leaders they can become so they can make a positive impact in the lives of others, and in the communities they live in.
