Keith Wasylik has had a major influence on the sport of volleyball, positively impacting athletes, coaches, and administrators, in the province for over 35 years. 
Keith started his volleyball career in Winnipeg and was an accomplished athlete. As a member of the University of Winnipeg varsity team, he captured three Canadian Interuniversity Championships, and was later inducted into the Manitoba Hall of Fame (2016). Keith was a member of the Canadian National Team (1972-1974, 1977), and won a bronze medal at NORCECA Championships. 
After his playing career was over, Keith moved to Ontario in 1981 where he became the Technical Director for the Ontario Volleyball Association, a position he held until 1990. During his 9 years with the OVA, Keith made a significant professional impact on the growth and development of volleyball programs delivered in Ontario. Since 1990, Keith has continued to be involved and is a true representative of the OVA’s mission and vision through his continued coaching involvement, as a clinician, mentor, technical and club coach in grassroots, high performance (Team Ontario, Canada Games Teams) and national athlete programs (Youth National Team, Junior National Team). Keith was an internal part of the leadership program at Madawaska Volleyball Camp as their Technical Director and helped develop innovative resources to train and certify coaches that attended camp. 
Keith has contributed to coach education by developing resources, facilitating courses, mentoring and by providing feedback during the pilot phase of Volleyball Canada’s NCCP coach training process. He has delivered more technical coaching courses than any learning facilitator in the province.  It is not possible to count the number of coaches that have been impacted by Keith. 
If coaching wasn’t enough, Keith has found the time to rise through the ranks as an indoor official and currently holds the rank of a Level 4 National Referee. 
Keith is truly a life-long learner of our sport and continues to develop and share his passion and knowledge of the sport on all levels and is an excellent ambassador for the OVA.  #ovahalloffame #volleyballforlife
