2018 Beach Nationals
Post event survey
Volleyball Canada is committed to the continuous improvement of its events and we strive to deliver a product that all of our participants can enjoy. In order to help us improve future events for all parties involved, we ask that you complete this voluntary survey. Your answers will help us identify the positive and negative aspects of each event. They will also provide us with insight as to what you personally expect from us and from a national championship event.
The survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. At the conclusion of the survey you will have an opportunity to enter your email into a draw to win a Volleyball Canada Prize Package.
The survey will be available online until Sunday, September 9th. The draw for the Volleyball Canada prize package will be made on Monday, September 10th.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your thoughts and opinions with us.
