The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month for April 2020 is Shynelle Woroniuk. Shynelle Woroniuk is a 16 year old Red Deer, AB resident, Grade 11 student at Ecole Notre Dame High School and a competitive multi-sport athlete.

Shynelle has had a great deal of success in a variety of sports, including fastball, basketball, badminton, athletics and volleyball. In the past year, Shynelle won an ASAA Gold Medal in Mixed Doubles Badminton, a ASAA Bronze Medal in High Jump, an Aggregate 3rd at ASAA Athletic Provincials, and a Silver medal in Badminton Mixed Doubles at the 2020 Alberta Winter Games. Last summer Shynelle was named to Volleyball Alberta’s Provincial 16U Women’s Team for the 2nd year in a row and competed at Volleyball Canada’s Cup in Halifax, Nova Scotia. During her HS volleyball season Shynelle was named to the All-Star Team at four different tournaments and was named to the League All-Star team.

Most recently, Shynelle was selected by Volleyball Canada as one of 16 athletes from across Canada to join the National Excellence Program at the Team Canada Women’s Volleyball training centre in Richmond, BC for the fall semester.  The National Excellence Program (NEP) is designed to prepare athletes to perform at the highest level of our sport and to continue their development towards the National Senior Team Program and/or playing professional volleyball.  NEP athletes, through training, competition, and tours are introduced to leading international volleyball programs and clubs.  Shynelle is one of three Alberta athletes selected to the program.

In the classroom, Shynelle is an Honours student at Notre Dame. Shynelle’s goals include playing volleyball at a post-secondary level in either USport in Canada or NCAA D1 in the United States, and is currently considering several scholarship offers.

With Shynelle’s strong work ethic, her undeniable athletic abilities and her training experiences with ASDC-Central, she will surely continue to grow, develop and succeed in her volleyball career!

ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.
