High Performance Regional 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.
