He stated that the girls would work on their volleying, bumping, communication, serving skills, and team bonding.

Kabvitok and Mercer have been teaching for years, but they recently took a break to spend more time with their families. Kabvitok is incredibly proud of his former volleyball players who competed in the Arctic Winter Games and the Canada Summer Games.
