ICYMI: Hear From Émie Gaboury

August 10, 2015

Today, Émie stopped by to help the VPC athletes who are participating in the Ottawa Camp. Émie is one of six current and/or former VPC athletes who made either the Junior or Youth National Women's Volleyball Team this summer.

Here's what Émie had to say regarding VPC's role in her development: "let me first start by saying that VPC truly guided me towards taking the first steps into becoming an elite athlete. Back in 2013 when I participated in the camp, I was a 15U girl that loved playing volleyball and wanted to take my game to the next level but didn't quite know how to do it. VPC taught me to take care of details on and off the court. During the course of the week, coaches went through every aspect of the game, from nutrition, recovery, managing school work load as an athlete to position specific on the court. I learned to embrace the technical side of the game and have a purpose behind every action as I had the opportunity to have a huge amount of reps over the course of the camp. All the feedback and knowledge I acquired at the camp truly helped me since"
Congratulations Émie, Vanessa, Courtney, Jaimie, Rachel and Alina - VPC is proud of all of you!
