NATIONAL TEAM CHALLENGE CUP (NTCC)
In 2015, the National Team Challenge Cup (NTCC) will be the largest elite/provincial team tournament held in Canada with over 20 teams, combining two age groups in one venue over 6 days.
Hosted in Edmonton, AB (men) and Richmond, BC (women) from July 15-19, 2015, the elite championship will bring together the best athletes and coaches representing their province/territory and culminate in a National Championship.
“It’s great to see the expansion of our elite program to include the 16U division and the broadening of the selection process for the next generation of national team athletes,” said Volleyball Canada Men’s Head Coach, Glenn Hoag. “This is an important step in the pathway to the senior team, and I’m looking forward to seeing the feedback from our development coaches on these athletes from across the country.”
“Talent identification and development is very important to the future of our National Team programs,” said Arnd Ludwig, Volleyball Canada Women’s Head Coach. “I’m happy to see this new approach. I’m looking forward to an expanded elite championship.”
Athletes interested in participating in the NTCC’S must first be selected to their 16U or 18U Provincial/Territorial Program. Please contact your Provincial Volleyball Association for Provincial/Territory Team selection process and key dates.
From the NTCC’S, the top athletes will be identified and selected to represent Canada as part of a 16U and 18U National Team program. For further details on National Team programs, please click below:
