4. Signing process and athlete registration
The signing process for this upcoming season is much different from previous years. Below we have noted some key timelines for the upcoming 2021 Season. Due to COVID-19, Volleyball BC is encouraging clubs and athletes to utilize early signing and athlete applications wherever possible this year in an effort to reduce traffic at tryouts.

Early Signing and Athlete Application Periods
The 2021 Early Signing Period will run October 15 – November 15, 2020. The Early Signing Period can be utilized by returning clubs In Good Standing that wish to sign returning athletes to their club for the 2021 Club Season. Athletes that are signed by a club during this period MUST have played for that club during the 2020 Club Season. Volleyball BC has a zero-tolerance policy for recruitment.

The 2021 Athlete Application will run November 16 – December 5. The Athlete Application can be utilized by returning AND new clubs In Good Standing for the 2021 Season. Athletes will prepare an application via Volleyball BC, and indicate the clubs they wish to send it to. Volleyball BC will then communicate directly with clubs. The application form will go live on November 16.

2021 Tryouts. For new athletes or athletes that do not utilize the above 2 options, clubs will be able to host tryouts between Jan 2 – 31/21. There are additional guidelines for this process. For more information, please visit the Volleyball BC website, www.volleyballbc.org

The Volleyball BC season of play is slated to begin on Feb 1st.

We are constantly looking for your feedback and ideas. Our Board is working to deliver the best club experience for all of our athletes. Please contact us anytime at info@elevatevolleyball.ca or elevate.volleyball.board@gmail.com
