2021 Volleyball Canada Nationals

Volleyball Canada is excited to be hosting eight National Championship events in May of 2021. In what is projected to be the biggest year to date for participation, 2021 Nationals are expected to see over 1,000 teams across the seven Canadian host cities. The competitions will see Montreal hosting its first-ever Nationals event, while Winnipeg will play host for the first time since 2016. Whether you’re on the court or in the stands, these will be action-packed events that you won’t want to miss.

The following chart summarizes some important 2021 Nationals dates.
