The British Virgin Islands is sending a talented youth beach volleyball duo to a major training camp and qualification tournament as they set their sights on the 2025 Pan American Games in Asuncion, Paraguay and the Youth Olympic Games.

Jason Dunkley and Alexander Wheatley arrived in Tobago today ahead of a two-day world-class beach volleyball training camp facilitated by experienced FIVB International Instructors. The camp, held at the Commonwealth Games legacy beach facility in Courtland on May 23-24, will provide the players a unique opportunity to enhance their skills and tactical knowledge of the game.

  The team is being coached by Valissia Brathwaite who has accompanied them to the tournament.

The training aims to provide participants with a unique opportunity to enhance their skills and knowledge of the game, and will help to prepare them for the 2025 Beach Volleyball Circuit which includes the Pan Am Games in Asunción Paraguay and as a qualifier to the Youth Olympic Games.

Immediately following the camp, Dunkley and Wheatley will compete in the 2024 U19 World Championships Qualification Tournament, also hosted in Tobago on May 25-26.

The Virgin Islands Volleyball Association lauded the BVI Olympic Committee for facilitating the opportunities through its Youth Athlete Preparation Program 2024.

“We would like to take the opportunity to recognize the BVI Olympic Committee for making this opportunity possible through it’s Youth Athlete Preparation Program 2024 and would like to publicly express gratitude for their continued support of the development of Volleyball in the Virgin Islands.

Best wishes to Jason, Alexander and Coach Val for a successful training and tournament”, said a recent statement.
