Canada Games team AB Identification, Selection, and Training processes and programs are currently being reviewed. Information regarding the 2025 Canada Games will be updated by Dec. 1st, 2023

The Canada Games, held every two years, alternating between summer and winter, are the largest multi-sport event in the country and represent the pinnacle of interprovincial/territorial sport competition. As the best in their age group, these young competitors come to the Games having trained long and hard to be among those chosen to represent their respective province or territory. Since 1967, nearly 100,000 athletes have participated in the Games with hundreds of thousands having engaged in try-outs and qualifying events. Add to that the over 100,000 coaches, officials and volunteers that have been directly involved in the planning and staging of the Games and you have some idea as to the enormous reach of the Canada Games over a proud history.

Indoor volleyball has been on the Canada Games program since the very first Canada Games in 1967 in Quebec City, QC, and is one of the few sports that has been featured on both Winter and Summer Games programs. Indoor volleyball was on the Winter program from 1969-1987, and transitioned to the Summer program at the 1985 Games in Saint John, NB.

Beach Volleyball made its debut in both Men’s and Women’s categories at the 2001 Canada Summer Games in London, ON. Beach volleyball returned to the program in 2009, and has been on every summer program since.
