Volleyball Canada World Championships Qualifications
Four women’s and four men’s teams representing seven different countries descend upon the Hershey Centre from May 16–19 to compete for a berth into the upcoming 2014 FIVB Volleyball World Championships, held in Poland and Italy. The men’s and women’s brackets both boast a Canadian squad assembled from the country’s finest hitters, blockers, and setters. On the men’s side, representative teams from Costa Rica, Panama, and Trinidad & Tobago journey to Toronto in pursuit of a World Championship spot. Mexico, Jamaica, and the U.S. Virgin Islands fill out the women’s tournament field, each hoping to earn a ticket to Europe without having to dupe a kindly airline employee.
Volleyball Canada traces its roots back to 1953, when it joined the Federation Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) and formed the Canadian Volleyball Association. Since then, Canadian teams have been a fixture in international tournaments, earning several berths in the World Championships and the Olympic Games, where they’ve left signature, maple-leaf-shaped handprints into countless spikes and serves. Both the men’s and women’s teams shone especially bright in the 1984 Los Angeles Games, where they finished in fourth and eighth place, respectively.
