EVC launched in 2012, with an understanding that people, young people in particular, learn best when they are already doing well. The premise of a fun experience, while developing meaningful relationships was appealing to many players.
Founded by Level 3 coach, Chris Wildling and Level 2 coach Rick Wagner, a new experience in competitive volleyball for youth was being redesigned in Toronto East.
In 2014, EVC formed an incredibly positive relationship with Bluffs Performance (BP), a sports fitness driven company providing broad athletic experiences to children, youth and adults. Recognizing that diverse exposure to a multitude of sporting experiences was advantageous to all young athletes, EVC and BP worked in complement to one another on Bluffer’s Park Beach facilitating a multi-sport beach camp, developmental volleyball instruction and evening house league beach volleyball.
In 2016, Chris Wilding was offered and accepted the head coaching position for Trent University’s Men’s Volleyball Team. As he made arrangements to enter this exciting new position, he reached out to BP with a proposal that BP be involved with EVC on a year round basis. With a common understanding that the fundamental values of both organizations would dovetail nicely with one another, BP was excited to accept the founding members’ offer.
BP is moving forward with EVC and the fantastic staff that have developed the club from day 1. Particularly excited about the added resources that are now available to the club, EVC will be developing in size and in services and are proud to be doing so in South Scarborough.
