Team Sask Identification

Sask Volleyball is committed to providing opportunities for kids of all ages, who enjoy the high-performance experience, and want to improve their skills. This encourages young athletes to remain competitive and achieve personal goals to become the best that they can be. These ID initiatives help identify long-term athletes who are passionate and committed to the sport of volleyball, and help identify potential players for our Provincial Team programs. Athletes who are identified will receive an email invite to a Select regional or final selections camp in May. Please find below our scheduled ID events.

Along with Club coach feedback, Sask Volleyball High Performance staff will continue to monitor athlete progress during Sask Cups and Provincial competitions. Newly identified athletes may be required to supply a 5 minutes or less clipped video submission demonstrating their game and practice skills.

ID Registration will begin early January

IDENTIFICATION PROCESS

Athletes who are interested in the program must attend one of the ID events. Coaches will continue to monitor their progress at club events, until Provincials. On the Monday following their Provincial Championship, highly-rated athletes will receive an email invitation to a Select regional camp or our final selections camp in May. Please note that returning Provincial Team athletes will automatically receive an invitation to one of these two camps, and do NOT need to attend an ID camp before then. Team Saskatchewan high-performance programs are intended for athletes with the potential to compete at the post-secondary and national levels.

SELECTION PROCESS

The final selection committee in May, will evaluate athletes during a weekend of training. These experts will consist of the Team Sask coaching staff, Saskatchewan Volleyball’s High-Performance staff, and experienced external evaluators. Only the top athletes selected will be asked to join this year’s Team Sask.
