Scholarship Submission Deadline November 30 (annually)
With the major shifting of sports development over the past 10+ years, taking on much more of a private and/or sport specialization approach, gone are the days of the community clubs and school programs being the primary sources of development, which now see’s private and/or individual/sport specialization companies, businesses, programs etc leading the way for athlete development.
Club volleyball in Manitoba provides an athlete the opportunity to extend their development and competition opportunities after the primary school season is completed, but at a cost many cannot afford. Club volleyball in Manitoba see’s a multitude of different clubs available to boys and girls of all different age classes which requires parents to pay for these opportunities.
Many athletes/parents simply aren’t able to afford the expenses associated with club volleyball in Manitoba. What this can often lend itself to is only those financially capable of paying for these opportunities are granted these opportunities, with many athletes loosing out as many cannot afford these opportunities.
