Historically, the Canadian Men's National Team has consistently been ranked between 12th-24th in the world, and has participated in the 1976, 1984, and 1992 Olympic Games as well as the World Championships in 1974, 1978, 1982, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2006.

The Canadian Men have also competed in five World League editions: in 1991, 1992, 1999, 2000 and 2007. The Canadian Men's National Team is currently ranked 21st in the world.

This will be the sixth participation of Canada in the Junior Men's World Championships. The Canadian Junior Men competed in the 1977, 1981, 1987, 1999, 2003 and now 2009 editions, with a best-ever finish of 5th place in 2003.

Coach profile

In 2001, Chris Green was first hired as a part-time assistant coach of the Canadian Senior National Team, working alongside then head coach Stelio DeRocco.

Green assumed his position full-time at the start of the 2004 season.

During his tenure as assistant coach the team participated in three NORCECA Championships (2003, 2005, 2007), three America's Cups (2001, 2005, 2007), the 2003 World Cup, 2003 Pan American Games, 2006 World Championship and 2007 World League.

His involvement with Team Canada has not only been limited to the role of an assistant as his resume also includes several head coach positions with the men's program. Green led Canada's men's A2 team at the 2008 Bolivar Cup in Argentina, 2007 Pan American Cup in the Dominican Republic and the 2006 Anton Furlani International Cup in Ottawa.

Coach Green assumed the role of head coach of Canada's Junior Men's National Team in 2008, the same year he led the junior Canucks to a second-place finish at the Junior Men's NORCECA Continental Championship in El Salvador, which earned the team a berth at this summer's Junior Men's World Championship in Pune, India from July 31-August 9.
