Canada hosting tryout camp at Langley Events Centre

Roster hopefuls for Canadian women's volleyball team set to attend selection camp in Langley

Those hoping to go to South Korea this summer as members of Canada’s women’s volleyball team will make a stop in Langley first next week.

The roster hopefuls for Canada’s entry in the 2015 World Universiade Games will attend a selection camp at the Langley Events Centre from June 1 to June 7.

And among the 32 invitees, seven should feel right at home on the LEC court as they are members of the Trinity Western Spartans volleyball team, the defending CIS national champions.

Vying for roster spots will be middles Alicia Perrin and Katie Devaney, outside hitters Sophie Carpentier, Elly Wendel and Royal Richardson, setter Nikki Cornwall and libero Kristen Moncks.

Langley’s Ryan Hofer, who is also the Spartans head coach, will serve as the associate head coach for Canada.

Once the team is selected, the final roster will remain in Langley and train until June 26. The team will then travel to South Korea to prepare for the World Universiade Games, which run July 2 to July 11 in Gwangui.

Canada is in a pool with Thailand, Turkey and Zimbabwe.
