Sign your team up for OVA Community Calls to speak with high performance athletes

By Ontario Volleyball, 04/27/20, 1:15PM EDT


The OVA wants to help connect your team with athletes who have stories to share and who will listen and take any of their questions during these uncertain times through online hangouts. We have reached out to athletes from Team Ontario programs (indoor and beach) and the OUA who would like to participate in these OVA community calls. This will be a great opportunity for younger athletes who may have questions about pathways, experiences or who simply want to shoot the breeze with someone who has been in their shoes.

If your team would like to participate in a community call, coaches can fill out a request form provided below. Once the form is completed, we will put you in direct contact with an athlete who will then work with you to arrange a time and share the online conference call information.

You can take a screenshot of your conference meeting and share on social media. Remember to tag us and we will re-post to share with the Ontario volleyball community!
