ABOUT BKVC

Birkirkara Volleyball Club - BKVC is a sports club in Malta, founded on Wednesday 15th July 2009, by Mr Stefan Decelis and its main objective of offering the opportunity for training and playing volleyball, irrespectively of the age and technical level, through competitions and non-competitive tournaments. It is of utmost importance that BKVC members find a friendly and family-like atmosphere by coaches, team-mates and also administrative staff throughout this life experience. Members are greatly encouraged to excel and love this game with dedication, determination, desire and discipline. To achieve the above values, one is trained to respect, be responsible and fully support sportsmanship. Participants are welcome to attend our sessions to make a change in their lifestyle and learn the Club's R.E.S.P.E.C.T principles. BKVC is thankful for all the support received from Birkirkara Local Council. BKVC clan has a senior women competitive team which competes in the Malta Volleyball Association league from when it the inception of the club. Along its way, BKVC commenced youths' training and also decided, to promote active lifestyles, to offer this sport also to interested seniors (both females and males) in an uncompetitive environment. This team, named as Fun Volley, helps members to unwind from sedentary lifestyles by training this fun, energetic and challenging sport.

Being an adventurous club, BKVC does not only limit to volleyball but also exerts itself to supplementary events; educational and fundraising. Several educational events were organised with Birkirkara Local Council, where besides promoting sport and volleyball, the Maltese language and traditions were highlighted. Also, as fundraising activities, BKVC organises the Volley Jolly Christmas dinner to celebrate Christmas, the Figolli baking in the Easter period and the Season Showdown as the End of Season and Awards Night event. Moreover, with the slogan #BeActive in the European Week of Sport, organised by the European Union and co-ordinated Sport Malta, a sitting volleyball activity was organised by BKVC together with ParaVolley Malta, and supported by MVA. The main aim of this event was to encourage people of all ages and with various physical abilities to try out this new inclusive sport. This successful activity attracted individuals keen to try out this new sport, with ages from seven to fifty, and with and without volleyball experience.

Both Hon. Dr Michael Farrugia, Minister for the Family and Social Solidarity, as well as Hon. Mr Chris Agius, Parliamentary Secretary for Research, Innovation, Youth and Sport, showed their support for this activity by attending and speaking to the participants. This emergent but courageous Club decided to show its genuineness and seriousness by enrolling with the Commissioner of Voluntary Organisations. From the start, this was a dream for this club and the committee's motivation led to successfully achieve the VO Certificate 1192 on Tuesday 15th December 2015. This means that BKVC guaranteed and proved its transparency and accountability and in the end that its objectives will be voluntary and not a business. Proudly to point out, that Birkirkara Volleyball Club is the first volleyball specific club in Malta that was certified as VO.

We are open to any suggestions as to how to improve both this website, as well as any other issues related to our club.
