March 6, 2014
COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou volleyball sophomore outside hitter Carly Kan (Honolulu, Hawaii) was one of 12 players selected to the USA Volleyball Collegiate National Team's Tour of China, as announced by USA Volleyball on Thursday (March 6). Kan, the reigning SEC Freshman of the Year and an honorable mention All-American, was one of four outside hitters selected to the roster, which will compete during a tour of China this summer from June 17-27.
The tour is being organized by Bring It Promotions and will travel in partnership with the Pac 12 team that will be making a return trip this summer following a successful trip in 2013. The U.S. Collegiate National Team, which will train at University of Southern California June 13-15 before leaving for China, will play six matches against Chinese collegiate and adult teams.
This program is considered a second tryout for the U.S. Women's National Volleyball Team.
USA Volleyball will have two other opportunities for athletes to take part in the U.S. Collegiate National Team program representing 60 total athletes this summer. USA Volleyball will announce later this month its 12-player U.S. Collegiate National Team that will play friendly matches in Maribor, Slovenia, and compete in the Global Challenge in Pula, Croatia. The European trip will take place July 9-18. UCLA Head Coach Mike Sealy will serve as the head coach of the team. He will be assisted by Jenny Glenn, head coach at University of Northern Colorado, and Kyle Robinson, head coach at Long Island University.
In addition, USA Volleyball will select 36 players to participate in the U.S. Collegiate National Team program that will train and compete in conjunction with the USA Volleyball Girls' Junior National Championships from June 22 to July 1. The players will be placed onto three teams and compete in a round-robin event along with a Canadian Senior A2 team.
Athlete selections for all three U.S. Collegiate National Team programs are being determined based on evaluations from the U.S. Women's National Team Open tryouts held Feb. 21-23 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
