Amber Skyrpan

 

Amber Skyrpan discovered sitting volleyball at age 15 when Volleyball Canada contacted her high school coach. At 16, she tried the sport and enjoyed it immediately.

Skyrpan was born without a femur bone in her right leg. She played the standing game in high school but the sport became more difficult with higher level competition. She says sitting volleyball has given her the chance to “represent my country proudly, meet so many amazing people all while playing the sport I love.”

In 2015, she helped Canada win the bronze medal at the Parapan American Games in Toronto which clinched the team a berth at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
