2017 Volleyball Canada Beach National Team Selection Camp

Identify and select athletes who will have an immediate as well as long-term impact on the Beach National Team.
Nominate athletes for the 2017 Beach National Team (Training to Compete, Learning to Win, Training to Win and Non-funded)

The selection camp is primarily for athletes seeking Training to Compete Development Carding ( B Team athletes ).  Some athletes may be selected for the B Team as funded, non carded athletes if all the carding is taken.  If there is an overflow of B Team athletes (more than 8 individuals per gender) selected then the overflow will be invited to join the C Team. The standards for A, B and C Team Athletes will be shifting to meet the OTP performance standards for the next quad and are outlined below:

A team athletes are medal performance/potential in FIVB Level 4 & 5 events (formerly known as FIVB Grand Slams and Majors) , Senior FIVB World Championships and Olympic Games.

B team athletes are medal performance/potential in FIVB Level 3 events (formerly known as FIVB Opens).

C team athletes are medal performance/potential in NORCECA events.

Evaluation from the November 11-13 selection camp will be based on the following 10 criteria:

Technique, Tactics, Self-management, Physical Testing, Progressive Improvement, International Potential, Performance Results, Commitment, Goals and Objectives, and Coachability.

Carding is individual but since who an athlete is partnered with impacts on their potential to get international results it is highly recommended that each athlete identify an international quality partner for the selection camp.  The partner that is nominated has to agree that they are committed to the partnership.
