From what started as a common conversation about the status of beach volleyball in Western Canada (but this time it was on Facebook and lots of people got to talking!), became the early days of what is now West Coast Beach Volleyball Society. That was Aug 2016, and just 5 weeks later, it became a labour of love amongst 7 people, all connected through their love of beach volleyball.
We gave ourselves 6 weeks to pull off our first series of fundraising events in November 2016 ... and guys, we raised a whopping $12,000! Serious pokies and jumbo shrimps all around!!!
We created WeCoBeVo to raise funds not only to develop an elite athlete environment for Western Canadians beach athletes to train and thrive on the West Coast, but also in community spirit, we are donating a percentage of all our funds raised to KidSport Vancouver, whose sole focus is to remove financial barriers for kids to participate in and learn from sport.
Our overall goal is to see the entire beach volleyball community become more cohesive and evolve so that the West Coast of Canada is recognized as a place for kids, youth and adults of all levels to enjoy beach volleyball!
