Volleyball Canada’s Youth and Junior Program Update

Volleyball Canada is pleased to confirm the following youth and junior teams for the 2018 season.

“We are excited to have such a promising group of young athletes in our national team development programs,” said Dawna Sales, manager of athlete and coach pathways for Volleyball Canada. "This is the first time we are sending two teams from three different birth years (16-18U) to the High Performance Championships in the U.S, along with the Youth Women attending the U18 NORCECA tournament in Honduras in late August, which is a great opportunity to compete internationally.”
