Men's Volleyball Centre
The men’s national indoor training centre is based at the Centre Sportif in Gatineau, Québec.
Launched at this location in 2009, the National Excellence Program (formerly called Full-Time Training Center or FTC) focuses on preparing athletes for international-level training and competition.
Senior team athletes who are playing professionally in international leagues join the full-time training group in late spring for team tryouts before the summer of national team competitions.
The program is based at the Centre Sportif gymnasium, which features a centre court and can accommodate up to three volleyball courts at once. The floor is made of Taraflex material and the ceiling clearance is 9.5 metres.
The facility can house up to 1000 fans - 500 in permanent seats and 500 in movable stands - allowing Canada to host exhibition matches and NORCECA age-class events at this location.
