What is

Momentum Volleyball

Founded by Michael Amoroso, Momentum has always had a mission to grow the game of volleyball, a mission that was initially pursued through our camps programs and through working to send more athletes to play the game professionally. We saw an opportunity to not only fill a void in our country’s media coverage of volleyball, but to also use this platform to tell amazing stories, educate fans & coaches and to expand the horizons of how we think of volleyball in Canada.
