This year Olympian Gord Perrin made the move to VC Belogorie, a Russian professional volleyball club based in Belgorod which is participating in the Russian Volleyball Super League. He’s the only Canadian National Team member playing in Russia.
Stephen Maar is the only men’s team member in Italy this season with Power Volley Milano (SuperLega).
Several players are in Poland, including Nick Hoag, Graham Vigrass and Sharone Vernon-Evans. Middle-blocker Vigrass and opposite hitter Vernon-Evans (in photo) joined Onico Warsaw, which is coached by former Canadian men’s coach, Stephane Antiga.
France has the most number of Canadians playing in their leagues, and Germany is also a popular destination. And although Gavin Schmitt didn’t play in this year’s Worlds, he’s still playing professionally in Greece.
