Canada’s team for the NORCECA Pan American Cup set


Aug. 10, 2015: Members of the Canadian men’s volleyball team are heading to Reno, Nevada, this week for the NORCECA Men’s Pan American Cup (Aug. 12 to 17).

“We have selected 14 very talented players out of a training group of 22, which has been working together in Gatineau since May,” said men’s Pan Am Cup head coach, Georges Laplante. “Some of the players took part in World League matches earlier this summer, but for the majority of the team, the Pan Am Cup will be one the highlights of the summer. We know we will face some competitive teams in Reno.”

Teams from North, Central and South America and the Caribbean, including the United States, will compete in the event, which will be held at the Reno Events Center. Teams besides the U.S. and Canada participating include Argentina, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.
