The Big Bruce Volleyball Club is inviting boys in the Grey - Bruce area, born in 1996 or later to two open try out practices on Tuesday, December 2nd  and Tuesday, December 9th. The Big Bruce Volleyball Club uses Chesley district Community School as its home location on Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 9:30pm.  The club provides an opportunity for high school age boys who enjoy playing volleyball to develop their skills and to gain competitive experience. If a boy who has played on his high school team (junior or senior) and now wants to play more volleyball then the BBVC is the place to be.

The head coach of the BBVC is former Chesley Cougars’ senior volleyball coach Barry Mutrie. Barry is a former captain and assistant coach of the Ontario provincial team. He has coached several provincial championship teams at the senior Mens and OFSAA level as well as many CWOSSA championship teams. The Chesley Cougars were OFSAA “A” silver medalists in 2005 and OFSAA gold medalists in 2006. The club also features an excellent number of associate coaches such as Al Gundrum (Port Elgin). Steve Taylor(Port Elgin), Darryl Hampton (Chesley) and Jason Becker captain of the OFSAA gold medal winning Chesley Cougars in 2006.

Many former Big Bruce players have gone on to play at the university and college level. Players wanting to try out for university/college programs will need this club experience if they are to be successful at that level.

The BBVC runs from December to late April and consists of weekly practices on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 – 9:30pm. The club also participates in tournaments as part of the Southwestern Ontario 18U volleyball league. Players will have the opportunity to compete against teams from Chatham, Sarnia, Goderich, Wingham, and St. Thomas..

The registration fee is $125.00 which includes OVA registration, insurance, practices, two sets of uniform shirts and shorts and league fees. Parents may be asked to assist with transportation to tournaments.

This is an exciting and challenging volleyball experience. All players receive playing time at tournaments. Players will return to their high school teams with improved skills, the ability to play at a higher team play level and improved confidence in their abilities.

Interested players should contact Barry Mutrie at 1-519-363-3526 or by e-mail at [email protected] before the first practice.

The club is also looking for associate coaches who wish to gain valuable coaching experience under the direction of the head coach. Interested coaches are encouraged to contact Barry Mutrie.
