the VolleydomeTeams & Coaches

Canuck Stuff Volleyball Club has a long history of developing both great young volleyball players and great young people.

Since 1998 Canuck has had over 2000 male and female athletes play high level volleyball here at the Volleydome. Many have gone on to play at colleges and universities all over North America as well as in Provincial and National team programs. Many of them contributed to the numerous Provincial and National Championship banners that hang here in the Dome.

A number of factors are responsible for this success, but probably the largest amount of credit should go to the amazing group of coaches and technical resource people that are the backbone of Canuck Stuff. Our coaching staff this year has an unprecidented number of former national team and Pro volleyball players, all anxious to pass along their experience and "Love of the Game" to the next generation of hard working athletes. Listed below are the teams and respective Canuck Stuff Coaches for the season.

One of the distinct advantages of a club like Canuck is the high calibre of coaches it attracts because of it's history and reputation for developing great athletes, and great young people. We know each team will not only benefit from great coaching but will be exposed to the wealth of knowledge and experience of our Technical Committee consisting of a group or former CIS, National Team and many Pro volleyball players, as they help with the selection process, assist at team practices and offer positional clinics to Canuck athletes throughout the season.

Please take a minute to look over the impressive Bios of the Coaching Staff that call Canuck Stuff and The Volleydome "home".

U18 Juvenile Women

Coaches

Don, and Mylene Saxton

Don Saxton Don's volleyball career as a player started nearly 40 years ago, when after 2 years of playing Basketball at U of S he saw the light and switched to Volleyball, winning CIAU Gold in 1979. Don went on to play a total of 8 years with Team Canada earning a second place finish at the FISU Games, a third place finish at the Pan Am Games, and a forth place finish at the 1984 Olympics. Don played Pro Volleyball with the Dutch team in 1980, and in Spain from 1989 to 1991. He started the Canuck Stuff Volleyball Club in 1991 as a men's team which won 7 Canadian Championships and 1 USA Open Championship. During the last 15 years he has still enjoyed playing and winning in the masters and seniors categories, earning 4 more World Titles.

Don's coaching career started with a couple of seasons as an apprentice and assistant coach with Team Canada and his first youth club team was a group of 13 year old Bantam boys most of whom had never seen a volleyball before. Since that time Don and Mylene have run programs for players of all ages including the very popular adult co-ed leagues, Volleyball Academy and Dome Club for kids grade 3 to 11, School and Club Tournaments and of course the Canuck Stuff Youth Volleyball Club for male and female players between the ages of 13 and 18. Don was awarded the Tachikara Coach of the Year Award in 2008 after taking a group of U18 girls on an unexpected journey which ended with a Silver medal at the Canadian Open Juvenile Championships. The next season he led a group of U14 guys to a National Championship in Abbottsford and was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame again, this time as the recipient of the Sport Builder Award.

Mylene played at the University of Ottawa where she was awarded the CIAU Most Valuable Player Award in 1980. She played 1 year with the Jr. National Team and then went on to play six years for Team Canada, mostly as a middle blocker. After moving to Calgary, Mylene taught and coached volleyball at St. Mary's High School. Mylene has developed many great young volleyball players through the Canuck Stuff program winning two Canadian National Championships in 2003 and 2005. Mylene has enjoyed coaching our younger athletes working with the U14 age group and winning back to back provincial championships in 2012 and 2013. Mylene and Don are looking forward to a very successful season as this group of girls round out their Canuck career and their U18 year.

The Saxton's contribution to the game of volleyball can only be described as "immeasurable".

U17 Juvenile Women

Coaches

Rhonda Schmuland and Suzi Cooke

Rhonda Schmuland Rhonda’s playing career started here as an athlete and she continued on to play one year in the ACAC, four years at Trinity Western University and 1 year playing professional volleyball in France. We are very fortunate that she chose to coach here, wanting to give back to Canuck where her “Love of the Game” first started to develop. Rhonda is a fully certified NCCP level 2 coach and has coached U13-U18 on and off for the past 19 years. She has coached numerous juvenile women’s teams over the years here at Canuck starting with a head coaching role with the U17 women's team at Canuck in 2008, helping most of her players earn opportunities to play at the post-secondary level year after year. Last season she coached our U18 women’s team and again all of the girls are going on to play post-secondary next fall. Rhonda will continue to work with senior club players as part of the U18 Provincial Team coaching staff this summer.
Rhonda spent 3 years working closely with Terry Danyluk (head coach of the U of A Golden Bears men’s team) as team therapist, certified strength and conditioning coach, and part time assistant coach while completing her studies at UofA. Now working at UofC Sports Medicine clinic as a full time physiotherapist, she also coordinates and oversees our activation, recovery, and strength and conditioning program helping keep our athletes be healthy and strong and still finds time to play women’s volleyball (both indoor and beach) at a high level. She is excited about working with Suzi to develop the next wave of Canuck juvenile women’s athletes in the upcoming 2017 season.


Suzi grew up in Calgary attending Bishop Carroll High School and the University of Calgary. She played with the U of C Dino women for 2 years while playing for the Canadian Junior Women’s National Team in the summer. Suzi was then invited to move to join the Senior National Team and competed in many international tournaments including the 1984 Olympic Games (with fellow Canuck coach and Club Developer - Mylene Saxton). After 5 years with the National Team, Suzi played with the University of Winnipeg Wesmen, a team with an undefeated match record that season (55-0) culminating with the C.I.S Championship. Suzi then transitioned to professional coaching. She served as the Alberta Summer Games Coach in 1987 and as head coach of the University of Alberta Pandas from 1986-91. She was named Canadian University Coach of the Year in 1988. Suzi continued to play club volleyball until she embarked on medical school and residency, marriage and having two children. She returned to the game in 2005, when a long time friend and teammate, Bonnie MacRae - Kilb invited her back to play Master’s Volleyball and the flame was re-lit! Suzi has loved playing Master’s Volleyball for FOG Canada Master’s Women’s Team competing in the annual U.S Open Championships since 2005 and in the World Master’s Games in 2013 in Torino, Italy where the Canada Master’s Women’s team won GOLD! Suzi began coaching with the Canuck Volleyball club in 2013-2014 (U14 Girls), 2014-2015 (U15 girls) and last season was named Volleyball Alberta U15 Women Coach of the Year. Suzi is excited to begin her third year with the Canuck Volleyball Club Coaching Staff, citing the Canuck club philosophy and leadership as one which is exceptionally well qualified, experienced and balanced. Suzi’s coaching philosophy is to support athletes in attaining the highest possible level as individuals and as a team – all in the context of balanced growth as athletes and as people.

* Suzi has her attained her Volleyball Canada Level 3 Theory and Technical Volleyball National Coaching Certifications and is registered with Volleyball Alberta and Volleyball Canada as a Coach and a Masters Athlete.

U16 Midget Girls

Coaches

Bill Knight, Joanna Korzeniewski, Caitlin Finley & Payton Mannix

Over the past 35 years Bill has been a player, official and coach in different sports. He has coached Volleyball, Basketball and Soccer over the last 20 years. He was a 10 year member of the Canadian men’s national team, 1992 Olympian and he finished off his volleyball career with a Canuck Stuff National Championship in 1995. Hanging up the playing equipment and picking up the whistle changed his focus in the sport to development of the players and the referees to better improve the overall level of the game. He was involved with the original Volleydome operations and has returned to coaching volleyball the past couple of seasons for the younger kids at Dome and provincial club system. If you do not see him on the court as a coach, you may see him on the referee stand, as he officiates many weekends and at all levels which gives him a different perspective and insight to the game.

Joanna Korz
Joanna is an NCCP level 2 certified coach who has coached many teams over the past 18 years including high school, club (including a National Championship), Summer Games and Provincial Teams. She played with the BC Provincial Team, Canada Games Team, 5 years at UBC, as well as playing professionally in Spain and Portugal. Joanna is also an avid beach player that was ranked in the top 9 in Canada and encourages young ladies to play beach as that was when she noticed her indoor game really improved. We are pleased to welcome Joanna to our Canuck Coaching Staff!

U14 Bantam Boys

Coaches

Candace & Kent Greves, Jason Evans, Kevin Young, Tom Elser and Keal Prince

We are very fortunate to have Candace and Kent Greves returning for a seventh season as part of our coaching staff after a very successful season with the U14 Boys Program where Team Black won the U14 National Championship. Their track record coaching here at Canuck is truly amazing when you consider their win/loss record and the look at the caliber of athletes they have developed in their programs! Candace played in the Alberta club program as well as the Team Alberta representatives to the Canada Games in 1989. She joined Michele Prince at the University of Calgary as a power hitter in winning the CIAU Championship in 1989. She and her team mates went on to add another in 1994. Candace was awarded the "Mikasa U16 Coach of the Year" in 2011 after winning the Provincial Championship and taking her team all the way to play in National Final.
Her husband Kent started his college career at Mt Royal College where he was named "All Canadian" in the 1987-1988 season. He went from there directly to the National team and became the starting setter in 3 short years to lead Team Canada in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Head Coach Glenn Hoag had lots to say about Kent Greves at his induction into the Hall of Fame, but the summary of it all was "He is the best setter Canada has ever produced". Kent played 11 seasons of professional volleyball in Europe and in the span of 5 years he led the Paris Volleyball team to an unprecedented 10 major titles. Paul Duerden who has played 15 years with Team Canada and 13 years of Pro volleyball in Europe said "Kent is easily the best setter I have ever played with....The guy is a magician."


Jason grew up in Calgary playing volleyball for Crescents Heights High School winning both a city and provincial championship. He was also a member of Team Alberta during his high school years. Later on Jason went on to earn his Bachelor of Arts degree and Education degree from the University of Calgary while playing volleyball for the U of C Dino’s winning a national championship in 1993. Currently, Jason is a science teacher at St. Basil Junior High school and has been coaching senior boys’ volleyball for the past 12 years earning two city championships in the past 2 years. He is a NCCP certified coach with club coaching experience at the 13U & 14U level. Jason is a dedicated coach and is passionate about the game of volleyball. We are excited to welcome him to our Canuck coaching staff!

Kevin went to Grande Prairie Composite High School where he won a provincial championship title. Following this Kevin was the setter for the 1993 Alberta Canada games team where he won a silver medal. In the same year he was the setter for Mount Royal College where his team went to the national final. Kevin played for the dinos men's team from 1994 - 1997 and earned a bachelor of kinesiology. Following this Kevin obtained his bachelor of commerce degree at the University of Alberta where he coached with NAVC U16 in 2000 and 2001. Recently Kevin coached with Jason Evans at the U13 level and has also been involved with coaching hockey and baseball.

We are very pleased to welcome Stefan back to our coaching staff here at Canuck for a third season. Stefan is an amazing coach who worked with our U16 to U18 Men's Program the past 2 years. You may have seen him around the dome in the past coaching the young kids in Academy and Dome Club. Stefan has a Bachelor of Phys. Ed. degree but has spent most of his career as a professional volleyball player in Romania, Sweden and most recently playing in the Division 1 league in Spain.
