Team profile

Currently ranked 20th in the world, the Canadian Men’s National Volleyball Team has taken many steps forward since it began international competition in 1959. Results of note include 4th at the 1984 Olympic Games, bronze at the 1999 Pan American Games, plus numerous World Cup and World Championship berths and top-three NORCECA Championship finishes.

2007 saw a long-awaited return to the prestigious FIVB World League, but numerous injuries to its veterans and starters dealt a devastating blow to their goal of a 2nd place finish in their pool. Injuries continued to plague the veteran squad throughout 2007, however, its youngsters proved the previous years Full-Time Training Centre was worth the effort, producing an impressive 2nd place finish at the 2007 FISU Games in Bangkok, Thailand.

A disappointing end to the last quadrennial was evident when Canada failed to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but that has been put in the past and the team is now focused on new goals. Still under the guidance of Glenn Hoag, the team is re-energized and motivated like never before. The team qualified for the 2010 World Championship this past August, 2009 at the final NORCECA Qualifier in Mexico. A top 10 performance at the World Championship will be the focus and goal for 2010, and the team will also use this as a stepping stone towards the ultimate goal of qualification for London 2012.

Coach profile

Glenn Hoag has been an integral part of the Canada side since May 2006 when he became coach of the team. Since then he has led them in 87 matches.

Previously, Hoag was coach of Paris Volley of France, Ach Volley Bled Slovenia and was assistant coach for France at the 2004 Olympic Games where they finished ninth.

He will be hoping to improve Canada’s 11th place finish at the last FIVB World Championships in 2006.
