Canada’s Senior Women’s volleyball team will have some Peace Country flavour this year.
Beaverlodge product Dani Smith will continue her tenure as a player. She is one of 24 veterans and newcomers named to the team after a recent selection camp in Richmond, B.C.
Gina Schmidt, also from Beaverlodge, will be an assistant coach.
The women’s team will play at a Pan Am Cup event in June in Peru, host a International Volleyball Federation Grand Prix in Richmond in July, then travel to Trinidad for another event in October.
Also, former GPRC Wolves player Jason Haldane is an assistant coach with Canada’s Senior Men’s B team.
