Rather than throwing in the towel the athletes turned their attention to the Youth Olympic qualifier that was to be held by Volleyball Canada in late May or early June, also in Toronto Ontario. On February 5th they were notified that the dates of the trials had been moved up and were now being held March 3/4, leaving very little time for fundraising all the costs associated with travelling to Toronto for the competition.
May/May, along with a second womens team, Pantovic/Ostojic, team BC athletes who have experienced much success in their own partnership, have their eyes set on a goal and are not giving up easily.
These two young teams are looking for your support to make sure that the amazing, west coast beach volleyball community from B.C. has representation at the Youth Olympic trials in Toronto.
The ultimate goal for each team is to secure a spot to train for, and play at the Youth Olympic Games NORCECA qualifier, from May 25-28 in Cuba.
All of the donations will be will be withdrawn through the bank account of Joanna May, mother of players Hannah and Gracie May. Once the donations have been deposited into Joanna's account, she will send 50% of the fundraised dollars to the parents of Sara Ostojic and Katarina Pantovic through an e-transfer. The funds will be used to cover all of the costs associated with travel, accommodation and transportation for the players and their chaperones.
