    National Women’s Team Selection Camp Wraps Up in Richmond

    Volleyball Canada is pleased to announce the 2017 Women’s National Team roster.

    The women’s selection camp wrapped up on May 12, with head coach Marcello Abbondanza assigning 24 players (see below, with three additional reserve players) to the National Team roster.

    “With a nice mix of returning veterans and up and coming young athletes – our 2017 National Team is very promising,” said Volleyball Canada High Performance Director, Julien Boucher. “Following the largest women’s selection camp ever, our program will undoubtedly see a new beginning in its new training centre in Richmond.”

    One of the highlights of the season will be FIVB World Grand Prix – one of the premier international tournaments for women’s volleyball. It will take place at the Richmond Oval, in Richmond, BC from July 21 to July 23. The city will host six matches among four teams in Group 2 – Canada, Germany, Peru and Czech Republic.

    The team will also compete in a Pan Am Cup in Peru this June and the NORCECA Continental Championship (Trinidad) in October. The team will also train/play in Anaheim with the U.S. women’s team from June 12-14

    Rosters for specific events will be named at a later date.
