2018 will be a festival year! This means that the Volleyball Canada Nationals event will be hosted in one city, and in one venue! The week will be broken down into two tournaments over the span of 7 days. The first tournament will be held from the 16th to the 19th for the 15U and 16U categories and the second will be from the 19th to the 22nd for the 14U, 17U and 18U categories. VC is looking forward to host this exciting event in the city of Edmonton!
Registration will take place in January 2018. Dates will be released soon.
All team registrations for Nationals are done on the Volleyball Registration System (VRS). For assistance on registering a team, please consult the Nationals Registration Guide (Coming soon).
