Congratulations to Maiya Westwood and Kier Fey for the year they are having so far in the AUS. Kier and Maiya left Manitoba in the fall to head east to Newfoundland, and joined the Memorial Seahawks. Both former SHOCK athletes have contributed well on and off the floor in their first season, collecting a few awards on the way. Kier was named as the AUS Rookie of the year, 2nd Team All-Star, and the All-Rookie team. Maiya was 3rd in the AUS in assists, and lead her team to an impressive turnaround 10-7 record after a 6-10 record in the 2014-2015 campaign. Maiya was named to the 2nd team All-Star and the All-Rookie team. Congrats to both girls as they head into the AUS Championships this weekend in Wolfville, NS. Click here for more information.
Mike Burchuk has been running volleyball camps all over the country for over 20 years, with his Volleyball Experience camps seeing over 10,000 athletes during that time frame. His annual sessions include Summervolley, Wintervolley and Spring Break Camps held around the city to help athletes prepare for any season they are entering. The new website for Volleyball Experience (www.volleyball experience.net) is up and running, and we invite you to take a look at the new and improved user-friendly site. You now have the option to register and pay online instead of sending cheques in the mail!
If your child is looking to stay sharp over the Spring Break, have a look to see what sessions he/she may be interested in. There are 2 General Skills days, along with 3 days of position specific skills, and technical training for setters, left sides and and middle blockers. Have a look for yourself here!
Congrats to former SHOCK athlete Maiya Westwood as she was named Athlete of the Week for the week of January 24th at Memorial University. Maiya and her team compete in the AUS and currently are ranked just out of the top 10 in the CIS. The addition of Keir Fey and Maiya Westwood to the team this past year has helped sparked a turnaround in the program, with the team finding success at the higher level this season.
Good luck the rest of the way to Maiya and the Seahawks!
