The founders of Legacy Beach set out on a vision to build a local beach volleyball club in the Burlington/Oakville area, back in the Spring of 2014. A club where athletes would learn the technical skills of beach volleyball, in a fun, inclusive, competitive training atmosphere, while developing life skills like communication, work ethic, teamwork and cooperation. In the first season (2014), they found their first location in the back parking lot of Burloak Sports Centre, home to 3 beach volleyball courts. Then in 2017 they moved to the Wave Sports Centre that has 3 beach courts as well. Our first summer group had 16 athletes, practicing twice a week, and we called ourselves Legacy Beach. Now this past summer in 2019, LB had over 100 athletes participate in one of our summer programs. We currently run programs for female athletes only, but we are looking to expand to male athletes in the next summer or 2.
Legacy Athletes shattered expectations in the summer of 2019 and ended up competing in the National Finals of every single age group from 14U-18U, as well as winning a medal at the provincial championships in EVERY age group from 13U-Youth Open (All female premier divisions, D1T1)
