Bermuda will be represented at the prestigious Nike Boston Volleyball Festival to be held in Boston over the weekend.

The Bermuda Volleyball Association has sent the under-18 boys national team that will be among the 300 teams competing at the Boston Convention Centre from March 4 to 6.

The team consists of setters Yanik Smith and Ben Autmezguine, outside hitters James Luckham, Raphael Rudolf, Chris Skinner and Savio Wilson, middle blockers Rajan Patton and Kyle Mello, Libero Jake Roberts and defensive specialist Rico Cabral and Nik Froud.

All of the players have been involved in the BVA’s junior programme for several years with many already making their international debut.

Bermuda’s team will be led in Boston by head coach Drew Soares and assistant coach Kevin Manuel, who have been putting the players through their paces in the build-up to the tournament since last October.

Participating teams will compete on 60 volleyball courts and have been placed into various age group and skill levels.

Bermuda has been paired with 24 other clubs from the northeast region of the United States in the Boys 18 Club group.
