Official Spikes for Tykes Kick-Off Meeting
Spikes is THE major fundraiser of the Elmbrook Rotary Club and is a fun-filled day of volleyball. Started in 1988, it initially benefited Polio Plus, a Rotary International initiative to eradicate polio worldwide. Since then the proceeds have been directed to the Child Abuse Prevention Fund, the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts, and now to numerous charitable causes. Since inception, Spikes has raised over $700,000. 


The volleyball is mostly recreational and FUN, where each registered team plays for one hour against a team they have requested or a team assigned based on skill level. Teams are fielded by local businesses, local high school teams and clubs, church groups, families, friends, and Rotary and other service clubs.

 Spikes is a time for team building. The officers of your club, members of your team or staff, or employees of your company will bond as a team during this event. Couple the volleyball with a picnic or snacks to complete the day. Food and beverages are available at the picnic shelter.
