*NEW* High Performance Program Pilot- Call for Coaches! Thursday November 23rd, 2017



Volleyball New Brunswick is excited to announce that we will be piloting a new program in 2018- the Provincial Excellence Program (PEP). PEP is an initiative developed to facilitate high performance coach and athlete pathways. The objective of PEP is to bridge the gap that currently exists between club and post-secondary volleyball. For these athletes to succeed at the highest level, our high performance athletes need to be training together in partnership with a strong support system to help  them achieve their goals.

The number of spots available in the PEP is dependent on each program as well as the determined level of the athlete pool. Athletes will be selected to the program based on their individual birth year and the available age categories offered:

  • 18U Male: max 24 spots
  • 18U Female: max 24 spots
  • 16U Male: max 30 spots
  • 16U Female: max 30 spots

A Selection Committee will oversee the identification of athletes, the tryout procedures and determine who will be offered a position in the program. Selected athletes will be identified at the 2017 Provincials in December.


If you are interested in being involved in PEP, please send a copy of your coaching resume to paigepaulsen@volleyballnb.org by 4:00pm on Monday, Dec 4th 2017. We will be looking for coaches to assist during the following training days:

Sunday, January 7th in Fredericton, NB

Sunday, February 4th in Fredericton, NB

Sunday, March 11th in Miramichi, NB

Sunday, April 29th in Moncton, NB

Please indicate which days you are available with your submission. Mileage and lunch will be provided for selected coaches.

We look forward to launching this initiative and taking a step towards the betterment of our high performance athlete pathway!
