2020 Indoor Tournament Schedule --- date release & rationale for changes implemented to the 13U & 14U age categories

Posted April 10, 2019.

The Athlete Development Committee reviewed feedback provided from clubs, teams & coaches regarding the 13U & 14U Age Categories after the completion of the 2018 club season.  The two ideas that were motioned from the committee included:

  1. Splitting the 13U Girls Premier #1 into North/South
    1. Reduce cost for 13U Girls teams
    2. Reduce travel for 13U Girls teams
  2. Adding a 3rd Premier tournament to the 14U age category
    1. Increase the number of competitions
    2. Increase the amount of movement between divisions

Volleyball Alberta developed & completed a survey to clubs, teams & coaches regarding the ideas motioned by the Athlete Development Committee. The results were reviewed and in support of the changes in the following amounts:

  1. Split the 13U Girls Premier #1 into North/South
    1. Yes – 80%
    2. No – 20%
  2. Add a 3rd Premier Tournament to the 14U Age Category
    1. Yes – 77%
    2. No – 23%

Based on the feedback from our membership, Volleyball Alberta will implement these changes to the 13U & 14U Age Categories for the 2020 club season.
