Calgary’s Levi Klassen Signs Letter Of Intent With Men’s Volleyball

With plenty of options to choose from, the CMU Men's Volleyball program is very happy to have the commitment of Calgary Christian's Levi Klassen for the 2018-19 MCAC season. The backrow specialist was one of two 18u boys from the Calgary Canuck Volleyball Club to wrap up their club career be receiving the Saxton Scholarship, awarded to a club player who has excelled in academic average, community service and on-court performance during their years of service.

"Levi has a very extensive volleyball resume and is versatile to provide us with depth at both the libero and setter positions," said head coach Don Dulder. "He is a very intelligent volleyball player who will bring passion and leadership to our team."

Klassen has been a key figure in a very strong Calgary Canuck Dinos 18u club team. A now seven-year veteran of the club, Klassen was part of a 2017 team that placed second at Best of the West and finished fifth at the 2017 Club National Championships (Tier 1/Division 1) all after winning Gold at the Alberta Provincial 18u Boys Volleyball Championship. 

In his senior year of high school, Klassen captained Calgary Christian to a third-place finish in the Calgary Independent School's (CISAA) Championships where he took on the role of setter.

Recently selected as a recipient of the CMU Leadership Scholarship for 2018-19, Klassen will follow his sisters Danielle (2012-16) and Jana (2017-present) onto the volleyball court at the Loewen Athletic Centre as the third Klassen sibling to play for the Blazers.
