The Volleyball Elite Academy

The Volleyball Elite Academy has introduced a very experienced group of coaches to cover the skills of volleyball to the athletes. Leanne McGettigan is one of our coaches. As a player, Leanne competed at the provincial, university and national level. Her tenure with the Saskatchewan provincial team included 2 trips to Canada Games, a gold medal win in 1989 as well as a National title in 1988. In the summer of 1990, Leanne was also selected to play for Canada’s National B team. Leanne went on to play for the University of Saskatchewan for 3 years winning 2 conference titles, a silver medal at Nationals as well as individual all Canadian awards. Leanne finished her eligibility at the University of British Columbia earning a place on the all-Canadian team. During this time Leanne completed a Masters in Human Kinetics specializing in Coaching Science as well as graduating from the National Coaching Institute in Victoria with NCCP Level 4. As a coach, Leanne has been involved with a number of developmental camps, elite level camps, provincial teams as well as assistant coaching with the University of British Columbia and the University of Saskatchewan including being mentored by some of the top coaches in Canada. We are very lucky to have her sharing her expertise. To learn more go to the academy website.
