Volleyball Canada is proud to play host to the exciting third leg of the 2018 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League (VNL) in Ottawa, Ontario from June 8-10, 2018.

In celebration of Canada’s first at-home VNL competition, Volleyball Canada is planning youth-friendly festivities to take place in The Arena at TD Place on Wednesday, June 6th.

Local area students will be on hand to cheer on matches between Team Canada Women’s Sitting Volleyball Team and members of Team Canada from the Invictus Games (an international adaptive multi-sport event for armed forces members and veterans). Sitting volleyball is also part of the Paralympic Games program.

The excitement doesn’t stop there as students will get to meet these world-class athletes at a meet and greet, and have the opportunity to give sitting volleyball a try.

Media are invited to capture photo and video as well as interviews.
