The Volleyball Canada Youth Nationals are the premier domestic, national event for the Canadian Volleyball Community, related Heidi Russell in a release.
Winnipeg hosted 88 teams from the western part of the country including B.C., Alberta, and Saskatchewan.
The 14U Summit that represented Yorkton Blitz at this national competition, following their team name, advanced at each tournament they competed at provincially ending their regular club season at provincials at number-six in tier 1 out of 38 Saskatchewan teams.
Throughout the season there was notable growth in all players as some players had only started volleyball this last fall. Worth mentioning as most teams competing at this national level had players with volleyball skill of two seasons or more, offered Russell.
Being able to compete at the National level was a great privilege, and was made possible through the club, sponsors, coaches, families, and public supporting fundraising efforts, she said, adding the the team did not disappoint and won gold in tier 6, which was 41 out of the 88 teams involved.
