We aim to have embedded in all our members the joys of participating in the sport. The practice of a healthy lifestyle, the benefit of lifelong friendships, an unbelievable network and the value of community. Social isolation, a lead cause of mental illness in this Canada, is significantly decreased when youth are attached; to sports, extra-curricular activities of any kind, and most important of all are enabled to become apart of a community. The sport of volleyball has a worldwide community like no other, and participants will be able to form significant bonds throughout their lives with the consistency of our community. Hummingbird’s pathway is consistent with the LTAD plans of Volleyball Canada. Our programming is aimed to have participation in the sport at all stages of an athletes development, including retirement from competitive play.
