Men's Volleyball ID Camp January 13th

December 16th, 2012

Dear Coaches, Athletes, & Parents, 

The VIU Mariners Men’s Volleyball Program is in the process of recruiting and preparing for the 2013-14 season. The VIU Mariners Men’s Varsity Volleyball Program will be hosting an Identification Camp on Sunday January 13, 2013 to evaluate and meet possible future Mariner Athletes. The ID Camp is an excellent way for athletes interested in continuing their volleyball careers and connecting with the Mariner Program.


Mariner’s Head Coach Abe Avender and Assistant Coach Graham Sigalet will be there to evaluate athlete skills. The current VIU Mariners players will be present to give attending athletes insight into what it is like to be a VIU student and varsity athlete in a top program in Canada.


Upon Completion of the Camp, all attending, athletes are invited to watch the 2012-13 Mariners verses Top Ranked Cégep Limoilou from Quebec as apart of their ID Camp registration fee.

As the head coach of the VIU Mariners Men's Volleyball Team I am always recruiting and evaluating athletes for the future. My goal is to continue to make VIU Men's Volleyball program one the best in the country. We hosted an ID camp the last two years which was an excellent way for athletes to connect with VIU and our Men's Volleyball Program. The attending athletes will also get a full 5 hour training and evaluation session of varsity coaching and experience. 

If you are or know of an athlete(s) that would be interested in pursuing volleyball after high school or have graduated and are looking to attend post secondary school, please pass this registration form on to them. We have no age restriction in our camp so if there are some younger athletes that are at a high performance level already we would be happy to have them attend as well.  

Camp Date: Sunday, January 13th 

Time: 11:00-4:00

Location: VIU Gymnasium 


We have built an excellent program at VIU that focuses on the importance of education, athletics and take pride in building quality people that will be successful in their future. All of our hard work has been recognized over the past seasons with a Top 5 National Ranking. The Men's Program are currently coming off of a first place finish in the PACWEST and were the #1 ranked Men's program in Canada for 5 months of the year last season. I am very proud of our program and it is a reflection of the dedication and sacrifices our athletes make. 

If you have any questions or concerns PLEASE never hesitate to contact me. I would like to personally thank you all for your hard work and dedication to make Boys and Men's Volleyball a sport that will continue to thrive at VIU. I look forward to working with you and/or your athletes soon,

Take Care and All the Best in the rest of your School & Club seasons. 


P.S. PLEASE have your son or athlete confirm there attendance via email - THANKS!
