Volleyball Canada will be holding its annual Men’s and Women’s Sitting Volleyball National Team Selection Camp at Defi Sportif in Montreal, QC from April 29, 2015 to May 3, 2015. This camp is open to all male and female Canadian citizens with a classifiable physical impairment who are interested in representing Canada in sitting volleyball at the international level.
As this is a high performance program competing internationally; physically impaired athletes with a strong athletic background are preferred. Athletes are not required to have extensive volleyball experience, although an understanding of the game is recommended.
“This is a great opportunity to challenge our current athletes, as well as identify promising athletes who are interested in future competitive opportunities, including this year’s Parapan Am Games,” said Ian Halliday, Volleyball Canada’s Para-Volleyball High Performance Director.
Volleyball Canada’s sitting volleyball coaches and staff will be selecting one men’s team and one women’s team to represent Canada through the 2015-2016 season, which includes the 2015 Parapan American Games in Toronto, ON.
