Soon after we started our monthly tournaments, we decided to use our volleyball community as a means of drawing support for local charities. As a result, every month we choose a local charity and raise funds for its cause. We even strive to keep registration fees as low as possible to help participants donate to these organizations.
Below are the upcoming tournament’s charity as well as all the past charities we have supported:
