About Us

Team Cheer

Determination, Commitment, Teamwork & Fun.

Oakville Thunder was established in 2000 by co-founders Peter Walker and Peter Szpakowski. The first team was formed in response to requests by high school volleyball players looking to improve their volleyball skills, have fun and compete at a level beyond their high school volleyball league. The inaugural Thunder team enjoyed immediate success, earning a silver medal in their first ever tournament and the Club has never looked back.


Expanded from one team to many teams supporting boys and girls in the 11U to 18U age divisions.

Oakville Thunder’s reputation for producing top performing volleyball teams from Oakville has continued. Our competitive athletes have enjoyed competing against the best volleyball clubs in the country as well as those in the U.S.. We’ve enjoyed success at regional, provincial and national levels, having competed in top tiers within the OVA and Canadian Nationals in Saskatchewan, B.C., Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia as well as invitationals in the United States. Oakville Thunder teams continue to work hard and earn multiple medals, often competing in the top divisions in Ontario.
