Spirit in Sport!
Club Tonka began in 1988, was a front runner in building Jr. Olympic Volleyball in Minnesota and has been known as one of the best volleyball training grounds for young athletes in the area. We train young people for life balance and fitness through affordable and accessible volleyball skill development programs that promote teamwork, accountability, responsibility, respect for individual differences, and mental, physical, and spiritual conditioning. We believe the goal of sports is to build character while teaching the fundamentals of the game. We believe that given the right tools and training our athletes will reach their potential and enjoy success in the game of volleyball as well as the game of life. Our foundation for this belief begins with a strong belief in God and from that belief six core ethical values emerge: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship. Club Tonka is dedicated to promoting and nurturing the spirit and achievement of sport as a lifelong benefit to individuals and society.
Club Tonka Volleyball serves many communities throughout the Twin Cities. We are not connected in any way with Minnetonka Schools. Our practice facility is in Minnetonka and our name reflects that community but our athletes come from far and wide! Last year players came from Blaine, New Prague, Delano, Bloomington, Edina, Eden Prairie, Chanhassen, Orono, St. Louis Park, Minnetonka, Plymouth, Golden Valley, Shakopee, Minneapolis, Crystal, Chaska, Watertown, Maple Grove, Osseo, Mound, Minnetrista, Long Lake, Excelsior, Richfield, Hopkins, Buffalo, Wayzata, Loretto, Winsted, St. Bonifacius, Eden Prairie, and more!
