School). This school year she once again earned Top Hat for her academic achievements.
The first few days of June had her attending a invite only 3 day tryout with some other 30 top athletes from Western Canada and was one out of 14 girls chosen of over 60 in the tryout process to represent Team Canada Youth U16 for Volleyball Canada.
It has been fun watching Tamar develop as a volleyball player. She was first introduced to volleyball by her 6'7" dad, Chris and her Grade 7 teacher, Mr. Mac at Yennadon Elementary. He encouraged her to try Infinity Volleyball Club in Langley where under the coaching of Joel and Heather for over three years and her fellow team mates, she has developed into a powerful player. This allowed her to represent Zone 3 in Summer Games in 2016 and took home a bronze medal. In May 2017 she received one of twelve AllStar Awards for the 2017 Club Season at Provincials voted on by other club coaches.
Tamar has two younger brothers, Noah & Caleb that are anxious to have her gone for a few weeks but her dog, Kona isn't so thrilled.
We really want Tamar to have this experience and asking for some help to off-set the costs. Costs for Tamar alone are $2800 plus taxes and doesn't include a few necessary things.
So, we are asking for a little help. If you can contribute financially towards this experience for Tamar, we would appreciate it so very much.
