At what age did you start playing your sport? What drew you to the game? I started playing at 16 years old. Watching Team Canada games on TV drew me to the game and the GPRC summer camp was my first experience with the men on the team and I was determined from that moment on.
What is your fondest memory of your sport? 2016 Arctic Winter Games Gold.
Any pre or post-game rituals that you would be willing to share? How do you prepare? Music before games is a must. Lil Wayne is my favorite before games.
What are your future goals? I would like to get into coaching volleyball in the community for club and high school levels.
From Head Coach, Sam Tu’ivai:
What does this player bring to the dynamics of the team? Sidney Schellenberg is quiet but a competitor with lots of energy. Every time Sidney steps on the court whether it’s during practice or during the match, he will demonstrate the “winning mentality”. Sidney has shown great improvement to his volleyball skill and has been a great energy booster for the team. The coaches and the MVB would like to congratulate and thank Sidney for his hard work and determination throughout the season; at the same time looking forward to his development for the remainder of the season as a student athlete.
