Team Canada Women's Full-Time Training Centre (FTC) - Richmond Oval, BC

 

The purpose of Full-Time Training Center (FTC) at the Richmond Oval is to enhance the long-term objective of identifying, selecting and developing a group of athletes with ability or potential for qualifying for the 2020 Olympics as well as performing well in the 2017-2020 quadrennial. The goal for FTC is to have a minimum of 6 identified athletes participating in FTC while it is in place. The full-time training centre focuses preparing athletes for international level of training and eventually competition.

In addition to guidance from coaching staff, athletes receive services from the Canadian Sport Institute - Pacific which is located inside the Richmond Oval only a few feet away from the high performance training gym.  Additionally, athletes will have access to exceptional sports medicine at LifeMark also located within the national team training centre in Richmond.

In addition to volleyball sessions, conditioning and weight training, the athletes will be venturing out into the community helping out with various events.  These events include reading to elementary schools, running clinics for local volleyball clubs, helping out with local fundraisers, and more to come! 

The other A team athletes are playing professionally in international leagues and will join this group in May for team tryouts before the summer of national team competitions.

Any athletes interested in training at the FTC or in national team tryouts this May should contact cbenz@volleyball.ca for more information.
