Senior Fulltime Training Group


The main objective of the Ontario Fulltime Training Groups is to introduce and/or prepare athletes to high performance training in a fulltime training environment. Athletes training with a fulltime training group are also provided the support of an integrated support team through monitored sport science services. The Ontario Fulltime Training Groups are the result of a partnership between the Ontario Volleyball Association, Canadian Sport Institute - Ontario, and Volleyball Canada.
