My volleyball journey began in grade seven, I quickly feel in love with the unique techniques of the sport and looked for more opportunities to play. As I continued to play through school, I signed up for skill camps and joined Park Elite in U13. I played underage until my second U17 season when I joined NAVC to finish 4th overall on the national stage. I played for NAVC again in U18 until Covid shut the season down. I continue to play in various leagues as well as recently helping coach the U15 Park elite team. I believe alot of important things can be learnt through volleyball, not to mention the provision of opportunities for extreme companionship. Now having the opportunity that my coach’s once had in my life, fills me with immense joy.


Coach BATU

 I was born in Turkey and started playing volleyball there when I was 8 years old. I then continued my youth volleyball career with NAVC in U14 and FOG for U15 and U16. I did not play for my U17 and U18 years to focus on getting into university.

During those two years I got into volleyball refereeing and got my Level 2 Provincial card and refereed between 2017 and 2019 until I started coaching. I began coaching U16 FOG Boy’s as an assistant in 2019 and became the head coach of the same group for U17 and U18 during 2020-2021. I am currently an assistant coach with UofA Golden Bears Volleyball and with the FOG-Golden Bears Youth Program. 

Volleyball is a fun and challenging sport; it is at camps like these where the fun can lead into life-long passion!
