Volleyball Alberta's 16 month age span per age group:


If your child is born between September 1st and December 31st, and therefore is eligible to be designated within two teams, we ask that your child tryout in the age category of his or her school peers.

Example: a child born October 1st, 2003 is eligible to play on the U16 team OR the U17 team.

If this child started Kindergarten when he/she was 4 years old, they would be school peers with the U17 team.

If this child started Kindergarten when he/she was 5 years old, they would be school peers with the U16 team.

*Please tryout in the age class of your school peers; if you have concerns regarding this, please contact our Technical Director, Shellie at:
