OUR HISTORY

The Toppers Volleyball club was started in 1982 by school teacher Howard Gange who wanted to better develop the high school volleyball program. The club started out with one Midget team and grew over the years. During the 2019-2020 club season, Prince Albert Optimist Toppers had 16 teams and over 200 athletes registered in the six different age categories. 

 

At one time Toppers included boy's teams, but they have gone on to form their own club.

Traditionally, our program runs from January until the end of April or early May, with tryouts being held in December. Teams typically practice once or twice per week during the club season.

PRINCE ALBERT OPTIMIST TOPPERS VOLLEYBALL CLUB

Our volleyball club is dedicated to the technical skill development of female athletes aged 11 to 18. We develop approximately 200 athletes per year who are committed to the sport and choose to compete at a higher level.  

 

The philosophy and goal of our club is to assist athletes in attaining the highest level of volleyball skill through training, teamwork and dedication. We provide an atmosphere that promotes strong values and teaches lifelong skills through sport. 

 

The club is run completely by volunteers; our Toppers executive team, coaches and assistant coaches consist of business professionals, trusted community members, former players and parents whom generously volunteer their time in order to further develop both the program and its athletes. 

The number of teams formed each year is dependent on the number of coaches that volunteer their time as well as the number of players that tryout for the various teams. The benefit of joining the club, in addition to improving your volleyball skills, is to meet new friends from other schools and towns.

Toppers in a non-registered, non-profit club that prides itself on being able to keep the registration fees at a very reasonable rate. This has been made possible by the generosity of the Prince Albert Optimist Club.
