Muenster’s own Skylar Varga, outside hitter for the U of S Huskies, continues to follow his volleyball fortunes, this time in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Varga is part of the Canadian Men’s U23 Team competing in the 2022 Bicentennial Independence Cup from June 20-24. 

“We are all extremely excited for the opportunity to compete as the first U23 program, a program that is able to create a bridge between the younger age groups and the Next Gen roster,” said head coach Michael Hawkins. “This team is presenting opportunities for guys to not only get exposure to international competition but also to accelerate their development through our National Team pathway.

“We are in Brazil with an extremely talented roster that are hungry to compete and represent Canada on the international stage.”

Canada’s U23 team will face off against Argentina and Brazil in the event.
