Volleyball Canada open registration of Women’s NextGen Selection
RICHMOND, Canada, March 12, 2020 - The women’s NextGen selection
camp, to be held at the Richmond Olympic Oval, is open for
registration until April 03, 2020. The trials, May 03 to 07, are
designed for any athlete aspiring to be a part of the journey to
qualify for the 2024 Olympics and beyond.
"We want athletes who think they have what it takes to help us
build on current National team successes and push for future
Olympic qualification to attend," says Volleyball Canada’s
women’s NextGen coach, Shannon Winzer. "We now have a program in
place to work with more athletes earlier in their playing
careers, and there is a clear pathway to the Senior A team
through the NextGen program. This is not an age-restricted
program, if you have the potential to play in the 2024 Olympics
then we want to see you at trials!"
Selected athletes will have the opportunity to participate in up
to four international tournaments during the 2020 season.
"With the establishment of the women’s Next Gen team (Senior B
team) last summer we have been able to work with more athletes
than ever before, and our priority is to ensure that targeted
athletes are getting meaningful international competition across
the summer as we set our sights on Paris 2024."
