May 5, 2017

(London, Ontario) – Volleyball Canada announced today that Andre Forman of the Fanshawe Men's Volleyball team has been named to the 2017 Men's Junior National Team roster. The London, Ontario, native was a member of the Falcons squad that hosted the 2017 Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Men's Volleyball National Championship. Foreman also captured a bronze medal with Fanshawe at the CCAA Nationals in 2016.

 

"I'm extremely proud of André,” said Falcons Head Coach Patrick Johnston. “This is a huge step in his development and he's fought hard to get it. He's a true student of the game and I trust he'll absorb every moment of training and competition this summer".

 

The junior team will be training in Gatineau at the Centre Sportif to prepare for the U21 Pan Am Cup, held from May 14 to 21 in Fort McMurray, AB.  The Pan Am Cup tournament will also serve as the qualifier for the U21 FIVB World Championship in Czech Republic from June 23 to July 2, 2017. The Top NORCECA (North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation) team and top CSV (South American Volleyball Confederation) side each earn a berth from this event for the U21 Worlds.
