The 2018-19 indoor season will mark the 20th Anniversary of South County Bandits joining the OVA.
In 1998, our club’s founder and president, Bernie Diesbourg, put together the first Bandits team. A year later during the 1999-00 season, South County entered the OVA and we have been a member ever since.
From that first team, the club has grown to over 13 teams and over 130 athletes competing at this past year’s OVA Championships. The Bandits were one of only 3 clubs in the province to field two teams at the 18U age category and were one of only 5 clubs in the province to have every team from 18U down to 12U compete in Division 1 at provincials. We now also have more options than ever for someone to get involved in the sport with our club, with a variety of youth development programs taking place throughout the calendar year.
As we enter this anniversary season, the club is continuing the improvement of our programs and initiatives and we are still committed to developing and promoting the sport in our area. We are dedicated to training every athlete and educating every coach to teach the game of volleyball. We are so thankful for how large our Bandit family has become, brought together by the shared passion we have for the sport we all love.
We look forward to seeing all of you again this upcoming indoor season, let’s make it the best yet!
