Each year Volleyball Canada presents awards in two divisions under specific categories. These awards have been created to recognize those individuals or teams that have made significant contributions to the sport of volleyball.
Volleyball Canada has initiated these awards and will administer them, but the onus to nominate recipients still lies in the hand of our members. It is the participation of our Provincial and Territorial associations, and our vast general membership that will allow these awards to be given to the appropriate candidates.
So we urge you to participate. We ask you to take the time to appropriately honor the people who have made a significant difference in our sport. These people are your teammates, your coaches, your officials, and your volunteers, so please join us in honoring them.
The five categories of membership in the Volleyball Canada Hall of Fame are as follows:

Volleyball Canada would like to invite the sport community to an online celebration of the class of 2020 Hall of Fame inductees.

Learn more about their journeys during our virtual celebration at 19:30 ET on Thursday, September 16. Please note that due to the pandemic, an in-person ceremony in 2020 was postponed, but is planned in conjunction with a future Volleyball Canada event.
