As a coach, I believe that developing good people is just as important as developing good players.  I take more pride in the experience that can be provided to the athletes than the final result at the end of the season.  I coach to win all of the time but with the goal of developing each player that is a member of the team.  At the end of the season, my expectation is that each athlete has grown as a player, a person and a friend (to each of his/her teammates).   I get great satisfaction when any athlete that I have coached reaches higher levels in the sport that they love.

There is a new registration process and database with Volleyball Alberta this year so EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE REGISTERED AS A NEW MEMBER.  Please read this information circular from Volleyball Alberta and/or REGISTER HERE directly.

Volleyball Alberta wants to ensure that all athletes, coaches and administrators are covered under our insurance program (for both accident and liability coverage). Membership for the previous season expired on August 31, therefore it is MANDATORY that all Players, Coaches, and Club Staff become Volleyball Alberta members PRIOR to participating in tryouts. Clubs must have their coaches, board of directors, club directors, and any volunteers involved with tryouts registered prior to November 24.

Clubs DO NOT need to ask athlete’s for an NRS number, as that no longer exists, and the new Volleyball Registration System (VRS) does not currently have the identification number active. Please remind athletes that they need to be registered recreational players in the VRS prior to attending your tryout. We also ask clubs to update their websites and tryout information with the VRS Registration Guide (which can be found in this section under 'Downloads'), as there is still a lot of club information directing users to the old NRS system to complete their registration.

Athletes TRYING OUT  for a club team will be required to enrol as a member in the new Volleyball Registration System (VRS), visit the Registration Guide to help you register. All players trying out will be required to register as a recreation player prior to tryouts, and pay a non-refundable fee of $8.25 ($5 VA plus $3 Volleyball Canada fee + GST) for a RECREATIONAL PLAYER ROLE. *You must select “NO” when asked if you are a returning player/coach/Referee/Volunteer because the VRS system is new*
