History

Lumber City Volleyball Club was started by Robert Albert in October of 2019, after his son, Jacob, made the modify team for North Tonawanda.  They started practicing on Sunday afternoon at the Third Warder Social Club.  After a few weeks of practice and playing one on one, a few other players wanted to join. As the modify season was half way done, Rob looked for a close and affordable option to improve his sons’ skills year-round.  Not finding one, and after and exciting winning modify season, he saw the potential of the entire team practicing together and talked to Brian Starr about starting a Club in North Tonawanda.  Several kids showed interest, and each week the Sunday practice grew, and momentum for the club started to form.   Rob then approached the Third Warder Club to see if they would support us and allow us to practice each Sunday and Wednesday, they did, and the Lumber City Volleyball Club was established.

The original goal Rob and Brian had for the Club, was to practice year-round and maybe play in a tournament or two.  However, the kids and parents support for a club poured out, and the club grew quickly to 13 kids, and 4 tournaments.  The need for equipment, balls, coaching, uniforms, practice gear, etc..  became a concern.   The Third Warder Club, Before & After Fitness Center and Nash Road Church stepped up as sponsors, and the kids worked hard to sell over 1300 candy bars.  A logo was created, and the club was official.

Today, the goal is to create an affordable club that focuses on learning the skills & techniques, strategies, correct attitude, sportsmanship, effort needed, and how to enjoy the game.
