Discover The Beauty Of Training Ugly

Trevor Ragan Is Back...

VOLLEYBALL BC is pleased to announce a special event and learning opportunity. Trevor Ragan graced the stage of the BC Sport Leadership Conference 3 years ago and he's returning to BC to work with our Women's National Team program.

Canadian Women’s Volleyball National Team Head Coach Tom Black is bringing Trevor and his “Train Ugly” approach to work with the Women's National Team.

We have kept the price affordable and the event is targeted at athletes, coaches and parents for any sport. Coaches will also get 2 PD credits for attending! 

Trevor Ragan loves to get to work and we are fortunate to have this dynamic presenter available to share his insights with our learning community. Trevor will be presenting on how to build a Growth Mindset and where to find the learning opportunities in every challenge.

Trevor will blow you away with his knowledge on ways to build resilience and overcome fear in the learning environment. 

  • Athletes will benefit by understanding a few of the reasons we resist or avoid getting out of our comfort zone
  • Coaches can find ways to build off of these themes to foster a great learning culture (and be eligible for 2 PD points)
  • For Parents, Trevor’s experience presenting to a wide range of professions will help you in your day job and the information will provide insight on how best to support your young learner

This two hour session, including Q & A, is not to be missed.
