ABOUT US

OUR STORY

Our journey together didn't start until July 2019 when we happened to learn that we both were living in Southern California for the next year. We had both finished our last seasons playing in the NCAA at University of Southern California (USC) and Loyola Marymount University (LMU), joined Kerri Walsh's Platform 1440 training group, and began training together. We immediately clicked on and off the court, having very similar personalities, work ethics, and values. 

We are currently training in Hermosa Beach, California with Platform 1440 and our personal coach.

OUR GOAL

Our Goal is to represent Canada at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and to be a dominant team on the FIVB World Tour.

In order to do so we must climb the rankings for Canada by playing on the international beach volleyball world tour (FIVB). By 2021 we hope to be Canada's second team and the first team by 2022. Find out how you can be a part of our journey!
