Covid-19 Update

Due to Covid-19 Strathcona Prep Volleyball School will NOT be able to operate full capacity Fall 2020. We are not able to train in any facilities in the Comox Valley and are working very hard to welcome athletes for January 2021

We are hoping to run an after school program for athletes in Campbell River end of September-December. Please know that these programs could change and be cancelled due to Covid-19. For more information email Julie Young

Congratulations Strathcona Prep's Emoni Bush and Jada Hamer!!

Emoni and Jada have both been selected to participate in the Volleyball Canada National Excellence Program (NEP) starting in September. This program is designed to expose athletes to the training needed to perform at the highest level, they will be training with the best athletes in the in the country for their age category. Both Emoni and Jada have worked extremely hard on and off the court and we are so proud of their commitment to their development! We look forward to watching them achieve their goals!

"I adored my time with the academy and am definitely coming back next year for another go. Although it was cut short, in just a couple months I saw drastic improvement and gained confidence in myself as an athlete and a whole person. I found myself in awesome positions I wouldn’t have imagined days before coming. The culture was like one I hadn’t felt before and I was always taken care of from getting a physio appointment the day I needed it to a hug and conversation with the coaches. I strongly appreciated how much the coaches read us and our abilities day to day and adapted based off what we could do. I’m super excited to go back next year!"

Jada, current 17U student-athlete

The majority of Canadian athletes rely on volunteers for their development. SPVS provides top level coaches in a training environment similar to a University setting. 

Staff led by Head Coach Jesse Knight of Abstract Volleyball has coached every level of the sport in the world. Europe professional, International for Team Canada, NCAA, USports and more. But most importantly due to his relentless innovation and learning he has proven to provide skill and tactical results. Multiple University teams and international athletes such as Sarah Chase , have benefited from this development program.
