Training Camp 2016

Goalball Crew

From May 20-22, 2016 the Vancouver Goalball Club hosted a Training Camp at Fortius Sport & Health in Burnaby, BC.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday: 5 sessions and 15 hours of shots, blocks, drills, training, and games. John estimated that he threw over 300 shots throughout the weekend! … ice bath needed.

The Vancouver Goalball club was excited to welcome Canadian Olympic softball player and pitching coach, Kaila Holtz for one of the sessions. Although she was unfamiliar to the sport of goalball prior to attending training camp; her expertise in both sports medicine, and high-performance coaching was highly beneficial to us. So great to see cross-over between National Team athletes of different sports!

Many thanks:

We are grateful to have so many incredible supporters who make events like this possible. A huge thank you to ViaSport British Columbia and the Province of British Columbia for the funding they provided. Also a big thanks to BC Blind Sports and Recreation Association for their partnership. Without you, there would be no training camp.
