Saints Coach Named To National Team

The St Clair College Women's Volleyball Head Coach has been named by Volleyball Canada as Assistant Coach to the Women's 18U Junior National Program.

Jimmy El-Turk has spent the last three seasons with the St. Clair program and this past season, guided the Saints to an OCAA Bronze Medal — the programs first medal in 21 years.

El-Turk says it's every athlete and coach's dream to be able to represent their country.

"I am so honoured and grateful to be given this opportunity to represent Team Canada as an assistant coach with the Junior National Team," he says. "I am very lucky to be in a position to learn from and share with some of the best volleyball minds in Canada, as well as work with the best athletes in the country. I'm thankful for the opportunity and July can't come soon enough!"

The team will be training at Brock University starting on July 13 and then travel to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the United States Volleyball High Performance Championships from July 24-28, 2018.
