Frequently asked questions

What do my registration fees cover?


Your registration fees will cover the cost of tournament registration fees, a jersey and coach travel costs (fuel/hotel/food). You will need to cover the cost of bringing your player to the tournaments and any expenses associated with that. 

U13 teams: 4 regional tournaments

U14-U18 teams: 2 regional tournaments (SPVC & D.C.) & 4 Volleyball Alberta tournaments

What other fees are there?


Each player wanting to tryout for NBCVC will be required to register as a recreational player through Volleyball Alberta / Volleyball Canada ($10.25 fee).

Players on the U14-U18 competitive teams will be required to register as a competitive player through Vollleyball Alberta / Volleyball Canada (required after teams are selected)

If you fulfill your volunteer bond (outlined in the Season Guide & Registration Package), your $100 postdated cheque will be destroyed.

Each player will have the option to sell $200 worth of raffle tickets. If  you choose to sell them, you keep the money; this will help off set registration fees. It is a great way to help reduce expenses as tickets are $2 each and sell quite easily.

Why do I have to register as a Volleyball Alberta/Volleyball Canada player?


You need to register as a Volleyball Alberta/Volleyball Canada player because our club, NBCVC, is registered under Volleyball Alberta. Your player needs to be registered prior to tryouts; detailed instructions on how to register is outlined on the last page of the Season Guide & Registration Package (found under the "TRYOUTS/REGISTRATION" tab).

What tournaments will my child attend?


U13: Four regional tournaments: Typically 2 tournaments in Grande Prairie, 1 tournament in Peace River and 1 tournament in Dawson Creek.

U14-U18: Two regional tournaments: SPVC (Grande Prairie) and Dawson Creek; Four Volleyball Alberta tournaments. 

If I find a sponsor, does that money go towards my child's team, or the entire club?


 That is up to you. Sponsorship that the club receives help to keep registration costs as low as possible for all members. If you are wanting to fundraise for a specific team, the sponsorship you receive can go to your players specific team. 




How are the teams ranked in different divisions at Premiers/Provincials?


When your team attends Premiers, their performance is ranked into divisions; the amount of divisions depends on how many teams attend the tournaments; typically there are 5 divisions.

After the first premier, your team will play teams who ranked similar to your team; your team has the ability to move up a division or down a division depending on your ranking at the previous tournament. If you miss a premier, you rank the lowest, and you will be placed in the lowest division for the following tournament (whether it be a premier tournament or the provincial tournament).  

Volleyball Alberta's 2020 Season Planner & Competition Regulations is a great resource and fully explains how ranking is determined.  The link is below.
