The Volleyball Canada's Regional Excellence Program is an initiative developed through strategic partnerships including Own the Podium, Sport Canada, the OVA, College and University programs (U-Sport/CCAA), and High-Performance venues in Canada.

The athletes will receive training consistent with the technical and tactical instruction of our Team Canada athletes. The National Development pathway, including the Excellence Program, along with Provincial team and National Team programs are designed to provide individual skill development training to athletes using the same coaching cues and language used at all Excellence Programs nationwide and all National Teams. Consistency is key! Designed for athletes aged 13-17.
