The function of Youth Club Volleyball is to provide an opportunity for players and coaches who enjoy volleyball to participate in a quality program catering to various levels of play beyond the traditional school season. The BC club season runs from January to May – with many clubs hosting try outs in December / early January.

For players pursuing the Team BC High Performance Program, club participation is an essential part of their development.

Youth Club Volleyball policies and directions are formulated by the Volleyball BC Regional Development Committee with assistance from Volleyball BC staff. This committee is comprised of the regional coaching staff and volunteer members from various regions.

Please read the sections and downloads below carefully for some information on club volleyball, including our club handbook, events calendar and FAQs.

For all club details (including try outs and training times), please contact CLUBS DIRECTLY. Full listings are available here.

The 2018 Online Club Application will be live on Sunday, October 1, 2017.
