Call for Coaches for Regional Program

Friday, December 15, 2017

The OVA is looking for passionate coaches who want to contribute to the development of young athletes and participate in their own development as coaches to be part of the Regional High Performance program.

The OVA High Performance Regional Program will allow athletes from across the province to experience a high-performance style of training and instruction through an overnight training camp. In addition, athletes will be exposed to a unique competitive opportunity by participating in the 2018 Ontario Summer Games (OSG). The goal of the program is to expose more athletes to high performance volleyball concepts as to create a broader and more skilled group of athletes in Ontario.
