Canadian men's national beach volleyball team
The Canada men's national beach volleyball team represents Canada in international beach volleyball competitions run by the FIVB. The team trains at the Team Canada Beach Volleyball Training Centre at Downsview Park in Toronto during the winter.
The first players to represent Canada at an international FIVB-sanctioned tournament were James Helmer and Stephen Joseph at the Jesi Open in Italy in 1989 and they finished 18th. This was only the fourth sanctioned event run by the FIVB.
It wasn't until 1996 that John Child and Mark Heese claimed Canada's first gold medal on the FIVB Tour at the German Open in Berlin. The team of Child/Heese continued their success during beach volleyball's debut at the 1996 Olympic Games, where they won bronze. This was Volleyball Canada's first Olympic medal.
At the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, beach volleyball was included for the first time and the team of Jody Holden and Conrad Leinemann won gold on home soil.
The national team has qualified for every Olympic Games that has included beach volleyball except Beijing as well as every Beach Volleyball World Championships highlighted by a 5th at the 2013 World Championships by Ben Saxton and Chaim Schalk.
At the inaugural 2018 Commonwealth Games beach volleyball event, Sam Pedlow and Sam Schachter took home the silver medal.
