Team Canada Youth Men 2019 ready to take on High Performance Championships

Volleyball Canada is excited to announce the roster for the Youth Men’s Team for 2019. The following athletes were selected in May, and will train at the Toronto Pan Am Sport Centre until July 13, when they will travel to Fort Lauderdale to train with the USA Youth Team and compete at the HP Championships this month.

"Having athlete representation from across Canada is a testament to the quality of coaches and programs in our country," said Dawna Sales, Director of Athlete Pathways for Volleyball Canada.

"With eight returning from the 2018 squad, it will be great to see how much they have grown and developed in the last year and focus on moving to the next level. Providing consistent programming for the youth men from year to year will continue to improve the depth and quality of our athletes moving through to the Jr, B and Senior team rosters.”
