Team Ontario Regional Program

The Team Ontario Regional Program will allow athletes from across the province to experience a high-performance style of training and instruction through an overnight training camp. 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.

  • Consistent training delivered to all athletes and coaches from the regional program
  • Opportunity to train with athletes from all over the province
  • Training camp format similar to Team Ontario training camps
  • Opportunity to compete in a multi-sport event (beach and indoor)
