Corrected: Julia Murmann, Toronto, ON added to roster below
May 31, 2022: Team Canada’s head coach Shannon Winzer has announced the players in the U.S. this week to kick off the 2022 edition of Volleyball Nations League.
“After a short training camp, which included our red and white matches at Volleyball Canada’s Nationals in Edmonton, it’s exciting to be starting VNL with this group of talented athletes,” said Winzer. “The lineup may change as the tournament progresses, and we’re looking forward to week three when we come home to play in Alberta again.”
The roster, listed below, includes players who were on last year’s VNL roster, with a couple of new faces.
The first leg takes place Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana, May 31 to June 5, with Canada playing its first match, against Poland, on June 01 at 5 pm local time (6 pm EDT). After the U.S., the women’s team heads to the Philippines, and then back to Canada for the third leg, June 28 to July 03 (Seven Chiefs Sportsplex, Tsuut’ina Nation). Tickets www.showpass.com
The women’s finals for 2022 will be held in Ankara, Turkey.
This fourth edition of VNL runs from May 31 to July 24 and includes both men’s and women’s competition (16 teams each gender). The Canadian men’s roster will be released before the team kicks off its campaign on June 07 in Ottawa at the Arena at TD Place.

Canada’s women’s team finished 14th in its first-ever VNL last year, which was in Rimini, Italy. The U.S. team, also reigning Olympic champion, was the overall women’s winner in 2021, followed by Brazil and Japan.
