Most recently, Shynelle was selected by Volleyball Canada as one of 16 athletes from across Canada to join the National Excellence Program at the Team Canada Women’s Volleyball training centre in Richmond, BC for the fall semester. The National Excellence Program (NEP) is designed to prepare athletes to perform at the highest level of our sport and to continue their development towards the National Senior Team Program and/or playing professional volleyball. NEP athletes, through training, competition, and tours are introduced to leading international volleyball programs and clubs.
