Volleyball Canada wraps up its largest Nationals ever

June 1, 2022: After stops in five cities over 15 days, the 2022 Volleyball Canada National Championships have come to a close. This year’s Nationals have set the mark for the largest Nationals to date, with 1,042 teams between the Youth and Senior events.

“We’d like to congratulate all of the National Champions, medalists and award winners on their success over the past few weeks,” said Sandra de Graaff, Director of Domestic Competitions for Volleyball Canada. “It was incredible to get back onto the courts for Nationals. There was a noticeable excitement around all the events, with parents, coaches, and families thrilled to be playing for a national title.”

After two years of pandemic cancellations, the action kicked off in Ottawa, May 5-8, where the first of four 14U Nationals events took place. Durham Attack Volleyball Club took home both the boys' (Blast) and girls' (Intensity) crowns to open up an exciting three weeks of Nationals volleyball.

The following weekend, May 12-15, was action-packed with the 14U Nationals continuing in Halifax (boys and girls), Richmond (girls), and Burnaby (boys). In Halifax, Prince Edward Island’s only team attending any Nationals in any age group, Red Mudd 14U Girls, took home the girls’ National title while Nova Scotia’s Bedford Blizzard won the boys. Out in British Columbia, Air Attack Gold were the boys’ champions and Huskie Volleyball Club’s 14U Premier team were the girls.

That weekend also kicked off the action in Edmonton, where Volleyball Canada re-introduced the Senior Nationals, with both a men’s and women’s open division. Dunbar Cycles took home the men’s division while Pursuit Volley were named the women’s champions.

Edmonton was then the host to the 15U-18U Youth Nationals, bringing together 782 youth volleyball teams to the Edmonton EXPO Centre for volleyball action, Nintendo Switch volleyball, countless Crossnet Four Square Volleyball games, DJ, a Speaker Series, and a vendor hall where athletes could try the VC Jump Off, grab 2022 National merchandise from Volleyball Stuff, and check out vendors like Jumplete, Left on Friday, SixPack Recruiting, and more.

There was endless volleyball action as well, with three Women’s National Team intrasquad Red versus White games, seven Women’s Sitting National Team matches facing Team Italy, five Men’s Sitting National Team battles against Team USA and of course – youth nationals.

“For most of the athletes, 14U to 16U, this was their first Nationals experience,” explained de Graaff. “And for the 15U to 17Us, this was their first festival-style Nationals event, with the four age groups in one venue. Walking through the Edmonton EXPO Centre, you could see the awe at the size and scope of the event.”

The 15U and 17U divisions started the event off, with NAVC Griffins (17U boys), Halton Hurricanes Category 7 (17U girls), KW Predators Piranhas (15U boys), and Pakmen Gold Diem (15U girls) all sitting atop the podium with gold medals.

The 16U and 18U teams joined halfway through the week to finish the event off. Both Pakmen and the KW Predators clubs won their second gold medals with Pakmen Gold coming out on top in the 16U boy’s division and the KW Predators Synergy winning girls’ gold. The Synergy team was also the 2019 15U girls champion, making them back-to-back National Champions. Titans Crius won the 16U girls’ crown, with the 18U boys’ title going to the Junior Bisons 18U.

Volleyball Canada would like to thank the athletes, coaches, parents, referees, partners, and volunteers who helped make this year’s Nationals tournaments such as success.
