Canada’s Under 21 Men’s National Volleyball Team is in Fort McMurray.
On Friday, the team arrived for the Pan American Cup, being welcomed by a big group of people cheering them on as they came down the escalator. This includes many families as well as students from Westwood Community High School.
Volleyball Canada’s Director of International Events Alan Ahac tells Mix News this tournament will be featuring some of the best junior teams in the world.
“For example, Brazil is ranked 4th in the world, Canada 8th, Cuba 13th, these are tremendous teams and tremendous athletes and certainly you will be seeing some future Olympians.”
Ahac notes the team hasn’t been playing together for that long, just finishing their tryout camp earlier in the month.
