Team Ontario Programs
In addition to providing recreational volleyball opportunities for all Ontarians, the Ontario Volleyball Association has another mandate of identifying and developing elite athletes in the pursuit of participating on both provincial and national teams.
We offer a number of programs dedicated to athlete development and skill acquisition as part of our Athlete Development Program. We invite you to explore this section to learn more about the opportunities available through Team Ontario programs.
Regional Team Programs are meant to identify a high number of young athletes demonstrating a desire to achieve excellence in volleyball. At the end of the identification process, athletes are selected by their OVA Region to participate in the Ontario Summer Games for both Beach and Indoor volleyball.
The High Performance Centre (HPC) is a provincially driven program meant to provide Ontario elite athletes with a unique development opportunity. It is a very important part of the OVA’s Athlete Development Program. HPC is part of the selection process for Team Ontario Indoor.
Team Ontario is the highest level of training and competition that the OVA provides to young Ontarians. This program serves as a precursor to post-secondary volleyball as well as to the national indoor team program. Team Ontario athletes may compete at Canada Games and even represent the province internationally depending on the age group.
