The OVA is pleased to announce the high performance programs that will be available to Ontario volleyball players in 2018.

“Once again in 2018, we are raising the bar and increasing our leadership in the delivery of youth volleyball high performance programs in Canada. Next summer, over 475 athletes from 14U-18U will be identified to participate in indoor and beach volleyball programs aimed at supporting the development of the next generation of elite Ontario players. A variety of developmental needs will be addressed through different programs aligned with the Volleyball Canada athlete pathway.  The delivery of the programs will involve the OVA staff, members of various OVA committees, coaches from club to USport level and members of National Team programs. This amazing teamwork will allow Ontario athletes to get inspired to explore their potential and pursue volleyball as an elite sport.”
