Camosun Charger Savana Walkingbear: Understanding the past, changing the future
With textbooks and gym bag in tow, Savana Walkingbear pulls open the heavy steel glass door of the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence and is instantly met by his teammates and three assistant coaches who greet him with a succession of high fives. With a watchful eye, he makes his way past a barrage of volleyballs served mechanically from the opposite end of the court. In the Camosun Chargers team room he changes into his practice gear and receives a quick, routine taping by one of the team's athletic therapists. Back in the gym, practice begins as Head Coach Charles Parkinson (who will be inducted into the Volleyball BC Hall of Fame on February 6) starts calling the warm-up and the defending National Champion Chargers get down to business.
