Volleyball Canada congratulates Scott Koskie as he embarks on a new role as Provincial High Performance Coach with Volleyball Manitoba.

Koskie has already made a significant contribution to volleyball in Canada as an assistant coach of the women’s national team program based in Winnipeg for the past five years.

“I wish Scott all the best in his new job with Volleyball Manitoba,” said Volleyball Canada women’s head coach, Arnd Ludwig.

“Scott contributed a lot to the program over several years, and we worked very well together during this time. I will certainly miss his knowledge and expertise. I do appreciate that we will stay in contact as the women’s team works toward the goal of Olympic qualification.”

Koskie’s playing credentials include two CIS Championships with the University of Manitoba Bisons, along with 326 matches with Team Canada over 14 years at such prestigious competitions as the World Championships (3), World Cups (3), World League (3) and Pan American Games (2). He has also coached in numerous capacities at the provincial, national and international levels, including the World Championships in 2010 and 2014, the FIVB Grand Prix, NORCECA Championships and Pan American Games.

The Provincial High Performance Coach is responsible for the overall development of coaches, and oversees the athlete development pathway in Manitoba, with a significant focus on the provincial team programs. Koskie will officially start in this role on December 8.
