Team Canada Women's History

*Updated October, 2012

Historically, the Canadian Women’s National Team has consistently been ranked between 12th-24th in the world, and have participated in the 1976, 1984, and 1996 Olympic Games as well as the World Championships in 1974, 1978, 1982, 1986, 1990 and 2002. The women’s national team is currently ranked 23rd in the world.

In 2009, the team successfully achieved their goal of qualifying for the 2010 FIVB World Championship held in October of that year in Japan. Although the team failed to advance from their preliminary pool there is confidence that with some additional competition they can compete with the best teams in our zone, and the world. This past May the women’s team lost in the semi-final of the NORCECA Women’s Zone Olympic Qualifier to the Dominican Republic, who eventually defeated Cuba for the Olympic berth. The team will now focus on qualifying and success at the 2014 World Championship, and ultimately the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
