What age group does my child fit into?

The following rules apply to both Nova Scotia Championships and VC National Championships:
18U**: Athletes born between September 1, 2004 and Dec 31, 2005 (16 months)

* Athletes born September 1-December 31 of the previous year, on a current CCAA or USports volleyball roster, will not be permitted to play in the 17U age class.
**For 2022 VC Club Nationals & VNS Provincials, 18U Age Category ONLY:
A team roster for the 18U category can include 2 athletes born from Jan 1 - August 31, 2003, with the following restriction:
Athletes are NOT permitted to be part of any USport, CCAA or other Post-Secondary volleyball program for the current season (Sept 2021-May 2022)
What if there isn’t an assessment for my child's age? If there is not a team offered for the age group that your athlete would fall under, you would register them for the next age group up. For example, if you have a 14-year-old and there is no 15U team to try out for, please enroll them in the 16U placements.
Can my child attend an assessment in a higher age bracket? The short answer is “Maybe”; we would recommend getting in touch with us first. Email: email@example.com and we’ll let you know how you should approach this request.
When will I know if my athlete has made a team or not? If no offer letter has been received 48 hours after this date (TBD), it can be assumed the athlete did not make a team. Inquiries can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
If my son/daughter doesn’t make a team, what are our options? If the athlete has not made any teams, they are welcome to enroll in a recreational House League, should it be offered.
What will happen on the day of the session? Here’s what you can expect:
Parent(s) and Athlete show up at Carrefour with athletic wear and their own water, sign in at the front desk, get a number and enter the facility. Parents can pick the athlete up outside after the end of the session.
