Team Alberta is Volleyball Alberta’s Provincial team program. The purpose of the team AB program is to identify athletes with potential to excel in the sport of volleyball, and provide high-performance training and competition experiences in order to further their development on the path to future post-secondary, National team and professional league playing careers.

Team Alberta Goals & Curriculum


  • The goal of our provincial team program is to identify athletes who have the potential to develop and reach the next levels in our sport. This would include post-secondary, National Team programs and professional leagues.
  • To identify coaches that have potential to coach in a high-performance stream.
  • To help develop the athlete’s technical, tactical, physical and psychological skills by exposing them to enriched levels of training and competition.
  • To mentor, develop and educate coaches in a high-performance environment.
  • To provide opportunities for athletes and coaches to build their competence, character, confidence and leadership. To encourage/inspire athletes and coaches to reach the highest levels in our sport.
  • To prepare athletes and coaches for participation and success at the post-secondary and National Team levels as well as Western Canada Summer Games, Canada Summer Games, and the Canada Cup.


In order to get all volleyball players in Alberta onto a similar learning and training program, the Volleyball Alberta High Performance Committee was tasked with forming a curriculum for 16-to-18 year old athletes to follow.  The below curriculums are living documents that will be updated every few years to reflect recent evidence and coach/athlete feedback.
