Although special emphasis is placed on the development of local teams, it is essential to offer a performance component within our program to develop the full athletic potential of Nunavik youth. Here is the expected impact of the performance component:
1. Young people involved in the performance component will have a major impact on the development of volleyball in their community upon their return.
2. Young people involved in local programs can aspire to reach the regional team, with the effect of developing qualities such as effort, perseverance and commitment.
3. An increase in the “performance” level of athletes will allow the athletes of Nunavik to become more visible. Increasing the pool will also allow them better access to higher-level clubs.
All this will allow Nunavik athletes to have access to major competitions that they do not currently participate in: Quebec Games, provincial and national championships.
