Volleyball Canada has recently announced the new official indoor volleyball will be supplied by Mikasa. The agreement signed between Volleyball Canada and Mikasa Canada will begin immediately and run through to 2024.
Volleyball Canada will use the following ball for 2019 Nationals:
- 15U -18U: Mikasa MVA 200
- 14U: Under Review, to be confirmed in February
All balls are subject to review following the 2019 season and may be changed for 2020 Nationals.
Volleyball Alberta will continue to use the following balls for the 2019 season (Premier tournaments and Provincials) as per our Competition Regulations/Season Planner.
Currently, research is underway to examine a variety of volleyballs and their potential impact on athlete safety. Volleyball Alberta will review and monitor recent research, the Volleyball Canada selected ball for age groups (after their 2019 review), the new V200W which replaces the MVA 200 for international play, along with other considerations when selecting our supplier and ball models for the 2020 season and subsequent years.
