After just completing his second season as head coach of the UBC Okanagan men's volleyball program Brad Hudson will spend the offseason learning and working with the top players and coaches in the country as he has been selected to coach the senior B men's team by Volleyball Canada.
Spending his summer in the gym with this level of player and to work alongside such a high level of coaching is something coach Hudson looks forward to.
"I am beyond excited to take on this new role with Volleyball Canada. I am honored to have been selected as an assistant coach with this elite group of talented Canadian athletes and coaches. I appreciate UBCO's support in allowing me to pursue this tremendous opportunity."
Last summer, in his first off-season, Hudson coached Team BC at the 2017 Canada Games in Winnipeg, he has also set a school record for wins as a coach in single men's volleyball season in Canada West competition at UBCO and has placed two players in two years on the Canada West All-Rookie team.
Prior to his Okanagan coaching days Hudson was an extremely successful coach in the collegiate ranks never failing to qualify for the postseason at Douglas College and medalling for half of his ten seasons guiding the Royals.
The head coach of the Senior B men's team will be Larry McKay, head coach of the University of Winnipeg since 1989, Hudson, and Glenn Hoag, a former senior men's team and Olympic coach, will be the assistants on the team that will focus on preparing for the Pan Am Cup (August 12-20) in Veracruz, Mexico, which is a qualifier for 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
