OVA Regions are seeking coaches for the 2019 Team Ontario Regional Program! The Team Ontario Regional Program 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. This year, the Team Ontario Regional Program is located at Guelph University from July 27th-August 2nd.  The program offers athletes an integrated training environment of both indoor and beach volleyball. For more information on the Team Ontario Regional Program, please visit our web page: 

Along with athlete development, the OVA is focusing on coach development for our high performance coaches, starting at the  Regional Program all the way through to Team Ontario Black. At the Regional Program level, this will materialize through all successful applicants being selected as Head Coaches and through the use of Team Ontario Mentor Coaches. All coaches will have the chance to develop as a Head Coach during the Regional Program tournament. When possible, Mentor Coaches will pair more experienced coaches with less experienced coaches for the purpose of development and education for both coaches.
