Scorpions Nation is proud to congratulate Olivia Leite, the Scorpions Bursary Award winner for 2023
Here are some of Olivia's reflections from her time with Scorpions Volleyball:
"Over the past two years, my time with the Scorpions Volleyball Club has been an unforgettable journey filled with passion, camaraderie, and personal growth. The supportive and encouraging environment within the club fostered my love for the sport, allowing me to push myself beyond my limits and achieve milestones I never thought possible. I can genuinely say that playing for the Scorpions Volleyball Club has been a defining chapter in my athletic journey, shaping me not only as a player but also as an individual.
Olivia played on the 18U Telsons team this past year.
We wish her all the best as she begins her post secondary studies at Brock University this fall.📚🏫

The Scorpions Youth Volleyball Club Inc. has received an Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant to help fund the renovation of indoor volleyball systems and referee stands.
The Scorpions Youth Volleyball Club Inc. is one of the largest and fastest growing youth indoor volleyball clubs in Canada.
This year the club is celebrating 12 yrs of providing youth indoor volleyball programs to the public.
The club has been a recipient of a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to help partially fund the renovation of volleyball standards, nets and referee stands to allow them to maximise their use of facilities and increase their enrollment for years to come.
Tracy Knudsen, Co-President of the Scorpions states, "Our heavy use of the volleyball standards and equipment happens because of our large youth registration.
We would like to thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation, an Agency of the Government of Ontario, for funding the renovation of these volleyball systems. Investing in healthy activities for youth is paramount to the mandates of our club and the Trillium foundation."

A giant thank you to all the families who attended our Scorpions Volleyball Club tryouts this past weekend in Cambridge. They donated over 1,050 lbs of food to the Cambridge Food Bank. An amazing result.
Thanks also to Scorpion's Coach Mark Morell for leading this community event for the club.
Sept. 14, 2022…. For immediate release…..News Directors…. The Cambridge Youth Scorpions Volleyball Club is the largest non-profit indoor and beach volleyball club in the Waterloo Region.
The Scorpions Club is holding their competitive team tryouts for up to 500 youth ranging from the ages of 10 to 18 starting Saturday September 17th, at Jacob Hespeler Secondary School in Cambridge (355 Holiday Inn Dr.). The tryouts begin at 9:00am and run all day ending at 9:15pm.
There is usually a cost to attend the tryouts but this year the Club wanted to see if we could help out the community while giving the athletes the opportunity to make a competitive team.
With that in mind we have been coordinating with the Cambridge Food Bank to collect non-perishable items and money. We’re challenging the athletes to raise over the equivalent of 312 lbs of food (which equates to $1000) for the Food Bank in the hopes that we can help give back to the community in this time of great need.
You do not have to attend the tryouts to donate to the Food Bank that day. You can just come to the gym and drop off your donation.
Mark Morell, Scorpions Food Bank Champion states, “ We felt it was important for the club to continue to highlight the focus that we are a community-based club and to give back to the community. We appreciate any help the media can give us on spreading the word about this event.”
