Indoor High Performance

2018 Program Information posted approximately December 2017

What is Provincial Team? (Indoor)

Sask Volleyball’s Provincial Team Programs (Team Sask) provide opportunities to 15U-18U male and female athletes and coaches from across Saskatchewan to represent the province on Provincial, Post-Secondary and National Teams. Each program brings together identified high performance athletes from throughout Saskatchewan and provides them instruction with elite coaches and sport science specialists.

It is important to Sask Volleyball that a positive impact be felt within Saskatchewan’s competitive club and Post-Secondary environments from Provincial Team athletes.
