The Toledo Beach Volleyball Club started in 2003 and was then called the Toledo Beach Volleyball Association. Our vision has always been to grow the sport of Beach Volleyball. We started on 4 modest sand courts behind a bar called "The Barn", in Sylvania, Ohio and in 2004 moved to International Park. Angie and I started running youth leagues in 2005 and officially started training athletes in 2009, so we changed from an Association to a Club. Starting our 2014 Sand season we took on another change in our sport with USAV Beach and the OVR separating sand divisions into Club and Open, which was a great move for the sport. It will allow the athletes that are cross training for indoor volleyball and the athlete who want to excel at sand volleyball to have their own divisions and goals while keeping both groups competitive. We spent 10 wonderful years at International Park, at the docks in downtown Toledo, and are grateful for all the success we achieved there. Over the last few years, we have been working with Rich Kenny and Forest View Lanes in Bedford, Michigan, where we were able to build a beautiful 4 court, white sand facility that opened in the spring of 2015 for use of our junior and adult club members. It is a great addition to the already amazing 9 acre 9 beach court recreational facility that Forest View has been growing over the last 3 years. We have also been fortunate enough to be part of the first indoor beach volleyball facility in NW Ohio and have been able to continue our beach Volleyball training all year around. We would like to thank those that have supported us over the years, especially Rich Kenny and Chuck Bell, and invite all of you to come see what we have to offer. We are positive we have a program that will fit your goals!
Through hosting competitive organized events for all ages while promoting encouragement and training, we are able to engage our community and teach, support and celebrate our athletes in their quest for excellence while instilling a work ethic that is based upon respect, leadership and accountability.
Our #1 Goal is to grow the game of Beach Volleyball. Our #2 goal is to produce an environment that gives our junior participants an opportunity to realize their goals. Whether it is to cross train to benefit their indoor game, grow their skill set, attain a collegiate scholarship, or introduce them into our healthy lifestyle sport.
The TBVC was founded to facilitate the administration of Beach Volleyball in Toledo and surrounding areas with our focus on growing the game of beach volleyball through training and the introduction of Junior Leagues, Tournaments and Clinics.
