Home2024 Summer Grass Court Training




Lakeside Volleyball Club is happy to release our summer training program and schedule for 2024.  This is our fourth year running our grass court programs and we look forward to seeing some new faces along with those whom are returning from previous summer or academy training sessions.



About Our Programs

Beginner/Intermediate:  This program will be best suited for kids between the ages of 11 – 15 years old that are new to the game of volleyball and/or have limited experience playing organized volleyball ie. school volleyball, house league.  Focus will be put on fundamental progression and core skill development with the intention of each player leaving the 10-session program being able to perform the basic skills of the game correctly and with consistency. NOTE:  Athletes older than 15 years are welcome to join this group if they feel they would benefit more from a fundamentals-based program.

Advanced:  This program is geared towards athletes that have at least one year of club volleyball experience and can demonstrate consistency in performing all basic skills (passing/volleying proficiency, consistent overhand serving, knowledge of rotations and positions, attacking concepts and execution, etc.).  Drills and skills for this program are designed to build upon the athlete’s volleyball foundation and prepare them for continued competitive play in the OVA.


  • As a priority, please select the program that you believe would be the best fit for the participant regardless of age.  We have had 10 year olds that pick up the skills very quickly and should be with a more advanced group.  We have also had 16 year olds that are entering the game late and gained the most from being part of the beginner/intermediate group where the pace of learning is not as progressive and allows for more focus on perfecting core skills.
  • With regards to the above – during these programs, we are constantly analyzing and assessing the participants to ensure they are getting the most out of the program.  If we feel that a participant has been misplaced in a program and should move to another program (up to advance, or down to beginner/intermediate), we will reach out to the participant and their parent/guardian to have a conversation.

Summer Training Schedules

All training sessions will run on weeknights throughout the summer, with the first sessions starting on June 18, 2024.

All training sessions will be held at Hopedale Park in Oakville (located on the north side of the South Oakville Center – formerly Hopedale Mall – which is on the northeast corner of Third Line and Rebecca St.).  NOTE:  please access the park via the parking lot on the north side of the mall.  Do not use Tansley Drive to access the park as there is no parking available on Tansley Drive.


We have decided to run the Beginner/Intermediate and Advanced Programs at the same time for efficiency purposes.  We have the capacity to run four courts at once and have the coaching and support to ensure that all sessions are running with quality.

Programs 1 and 2 for both Beginner/Intermediate and Advanced will run from 5:30 – 6:45 pm.  We have added an extra 15 minutes to both programs and adjusted the start times so that it is a bit easier for the early group to get there.  PLEASE NOTE:  if you have already signed up and paid for the program but the new start and end times do not work for you any longer, please let us know and we will provide a FULL REFUND.  We understand that plans are made well in advance for the summer and that some kids have multiple activities to attend.  An email will be sent to all participants currently signed up so everyone is aware of this change.  Thank you.
