Program Overview

The Volleyball BC Team BC Programs work to advance volleyball talent and build a broader and stronger pipeline of athletes and coaches for our Canadian Olympic Teams. Team BC is the pathway for young athletes who aspire to reach the elite level and who dream to one day represent Canada on the National Men’s or Women’s Volleyball Team. The Team BC Select program (18U) offers high performance training and competition for the top athletes in the province. Athletes will consolidate and refine previously introduced Team BC systems and tactics, adopted from national team programs. Team BC Select will compete annually at the Canada Cup, and every four years at the Canada Summer Games.

The Team BC Select Program (Formerly Team BC 18U) has been renamed to follow LTAD principles published by the Canadian Sport for Life Group. Teams will be selected by athlete developmental level rather than age categories. For further information on LTAD principles and the Canadian Sport for Life Group, please visit  https://www.volleyball.ca/en/about/ltad
