Our daughter's first year of volleyball went great! - despite the covid impact of fewer tournaments and exhibition games. The club adapted and communicated in all the right ways. The team, the coaches, the awesome fellow parents all made... for an excellent experience for us. We look forward to joining Lakeside for some summer programming and for the 2022/23 season in the fall. I have no hesitation in recommending Lakeside - 5 star!read more

Our son loved the training! The coaches were knowledgeable and made the practices fun....taking the time to coach each individual to challenge themselves to develop! Lakeside training was a great experience and would be a great choice... for group training or individual training for players at all skill levels!read more

After 1.5 years off of volleyball because of lockdowns, Coach Steve and Coach Bear reignited my son's love of volleyball via the private training sessions as well as Boys Training Program. The attention to technical detail while having... fun made these sessions amazing - highly recommend them!read more

Lakeside Volleyball club is first class. Coach Bear & Coach Steve are fabulous with the girls teaching the appropriate skill level & challenging the girls to test themselves. I have seen my daughters skill grow greatly over the two... academy's she's been in & she always comes home with a huge smile on her face. She's tried several other clubs in the Oakville area & this one is bar none the best program she's been in. I highly recommend this club, coaches & its programs.read more

Great organization! We have been here for a year and seen a great improvement with our daughter (both in skill and attitude). Steve and coaches are pros who are great with the kids but also know when to push them. Would highly recommend.

Lakeside is an amazing club. As the parent of two children, I have dealt with different competitive sports organizations over the years and the professionalism and communication from the coaches at Lakeside is second to none. This club... is phenomenal. The coaches not only have technical expertise but they create an atmosphere of collegiality and fun. My daughter literally cannot wait to get to practice. She has shown incredible skill development and growth as an athlete and leader since joining the club. Thank you Lakeside! Looking forward to many more years with the club and maybe even some games / tournaments in the not too distant future!read more

When you start searching for a club/program for your daughter, you usually focus in two different aspects: the skill development; and the personal development. Well, with Lakeside, it was easy to identify that the search was over.Great... team of coaches with plenty of international experience, suitable for all kinds of levels, from beginners to girls ready to compete at the highest level. Our daughter has improved a lot more than expected and she has developed the love for the sport.Then the social and personal development: teamwork, respect, friendship, dealing with failure, dealing with success, commitment.... Thanks to the whole club and volunteer parents who have helped our daughter to become a better person.Do not hesitate to join this great club, you will not regret.read more

Over the years, I have had 2 daughters compete with the Lakeside Volleyball Club, and I can't say enough about the positive experiences both had. The coaching, training, mentoring and overall positive atmosphere was fantastic. Although,... neither of my girls were destined for scholarship levels, the skills, teamwork and mental toughness taught will be with them for the rest of their lives.Thank you to Lakeside Volleyball Club staff and coaches.read more

Joining lakeside Volleyball Club is probably one of the best things I have done in my life. Over the last year and a half my volleyball skills have improved tremendously and I owe it all to the Lakeside coaches for pushing me to become... what I am today. One of my coaches once told me that " You can have the skill but it doesn't matter if you don't have the mentality because that's what volleyball is all about". Without those words I would have never become the player that I am today and I am thankful to lakeside for giving me the experience of a lifetime. I have had so much fun over this past season that I can only hope next season will be the same. This is definitely the best club you could join.read more

This has been the best club I have played for in my 6 years of competitive volleyball. Through the help of the amazing coaching staff I was able to grow as a player and develop my skills to play a variety of positions on the court. While... playing for this club I was challenged, learned the value of dedication and hard work but also was accepted into the Lakeside family. The coaching staff and everyone at the club are truly passionate about making the athletes better volleyball players and uncovering their potential. No matter what your goal is, whether it's personal development or post-secondary goals, Lakeside offers a fun, high-intensity and supportive environment to help you reach it. It has been about 4 years since I played for Lakeside and to this day I am welcomed with open arms by everyone.Remarkable people! You will not be disappointed, I sure wasn't.read more

Dear Bear, Vic and Stevie,

I just wanted to let you know that Abby was named an Academic All-Canadian this year. She was also named to the second team all conference team.  Her career at King’s both academically and athletically has thus far been a huge success. 

That success is in large measure attributable to your efforts. Mairi and I firmly believe that Lakeside was a formative experience for Abby in terms of her confidence and athletic development.  

I am certain that Abby is only one of many young women that you have helped. I just wanted to let you know how appreciative we are of your efforts. 

Take care,

Hi Steve,

Thank you kindly for [inviting my daughter to the March Madness Academy].  (She) was just saying last night how she would love to sign back up again. Count her in. She enjoys working with the coaches and loves the sport. I’m so proud of her…as I didn’t know if she would take well to volleyball and I’m excited seeing how much she enjoys it.

Thank you kindly for all your coaching and support.  Being a part of Lakeside has made such a big difference in my daughter’s self-esteem. 

Kind regards,

S. Johnson, Oakville, ON

Hi Bear, 

Hope you and your family are  doing well. This is Christine, Megan's mom. As I read this article, I remembered the promise your made when you first met Megan at Lakeside.  You said I will guarantee that Megan will get a volleyball scholarship and you meant it.

I just wanted reach out to you and say a big thank you. I really appreciate everything you have done. She is doing well and I am very proud of the progress she has made over the years.

Thanks again, I am grateful!

(Sam) absolutely loved the camp and felt that the coaches were great at helping her learn. “They know how to coach!”.

We signed her up for the August camp as she really wants to try out in September and wants to do whatever she can to be successful. 

Thank you for giving her so much support. She is a really hard worker but still a little sensitive so she appreciated the positive learning atmosphere. 

See you again in August!
