MVP- Marys Volleyball Program is the developmental side of the Mountain Volleyball Club. They offer opportunities for aspiring young athletes to develop skills through camps, clinics and a house league program for girls and boys to grade eight held at St Mary Secondary School. Intertwined with the MVP program is the MVCCP (Mountain Volleyball Club Coaching Certification Program). This new program is aimed at teaching volleyball athletes to become coaches. Modelled after the National Coaching Certification Program, MVCCP includes modules on the Introduction to Teaching Skills and Goal Setting and Nutrition. Mentor coaches then get to apply their skills in a practical way by acting as assistant coaches in the various MVP sessions.
