Like the beach?

So does Wanda G! And she's running a BEACH VOLLEYBALL program for us this summer.
 

Have you met Wanda?

She's our Club's Technical Specialist and is... well, awesome. 

Wanda has played nationally and professionally. She represented Canada at the Olympics, Pan-Am Games, and won three consecutive GOLD MEDALS  at the World Masters. Oh and she's also a Hall of Fame Inductee!

I’m hoping to improve on athletes’ techniques. I look forward to seeing them gain more confidence and trust in their abilities as they improve.” 

Despite her humble and gentle nature, Wanda’s an incomparable force when it comes to volleyball skill, experience and knowledge. And we’re pumped that she’s sharing it with our athletes!

“I hope to share my passion for volleyball with them, and I want my experience to be of help to them. I want coaches and athletes to feel that they can ask me anything.” 

Wanda fits into the WVA beautifully. Wanna know why? 

Not only does she value the WVA’s inclusive approach, but when asked about her impressions on her first night, her face lit up and she said,  

“Hey, they’re playing volleyball and smiling. We’re off to a good start!” 

She’s accomplished so much so far (she’s still playing) that it’s tough to summarize without missing important details, but here are a few highlights of her career to this point:

  • Named All-Canadian. 
  • Represented Canada at the Olympics in Atlanta in ‘96. 
  • Played professionally for 10 years (Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Belgium).
  • Competed for Canada in:
    • TWO World Cups, 
    • THREE Pan-Am Games, and
    • FIVE North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation Championships!! 

And it was as if this was just her warm-up. Then, she switched to Beach Volleyball, and:

  • WON THREE consecutive GOLD medals at the World Masters Games. 
  • Coached Team Manitoba at three Canada Summer Games. 
  • Competed for Canada at:
    • ANOTHER Pan-Am Games, and
    • ANOTHER World Championship!!

Wanda’s also been inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame. To add to this incredible legacy, WANDA G also runs her own personal training business.

You thought that was it, didn’t you? Well nope! She’s also a HOUSE MUSIC DJ!  

It’s no doubt it’s Wanda for the WIN again - this time for the WVA, and most importantly, our BLAZERS athletes! 

Wanda's a very important member of our Academy family at the helm of our technical training, working with each of our teams and also mentoring our coaches!
