Team Ontario Indoor

In accordance with the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) plan, Team Ontario programs are defined by skill level rather than age categories. This decision was made to give consideration to the late-developing nature of volleyball athletes and to accompany their development within High Performance programming. 

The following Team Ontario programs are offered this year:

  • Team Ontario White
  • Team Ontario Red 
  • Team Ontario Black
