Volleyball Nunavut encourages each community to provide teams for the youth 18 years of age and younger.  By providing an environment for youth to come together, train and prepare for competitions.  

Competitions for Community Youth Teams to Participate in:

  • Weekly Games versus adult teams in own communities.

  • Community Tournaments (3 vs 3, 4 vs 4, 6 vs 6)

  • LGM (athletes 16+) - Rankin Inlet, NU

  • IOVC - Iqaluit, NU

  • Gold Diggers - Gjoa Haven, NU

  • Pangnirtung 3 on 3 Tournament

  • 18U Territorials - (VBNU helps to subsidize costs for Territorials)

**Volleyball Nunavut ONLY helps subsidize travel and accommodation costs for the 18U Territorials.  All other tournaments are at the expense of the community and athletes.**



  1. Have a dedicated coach for the team.  See Coaching Requirements

  2. Book Gym / Hall time at least 2 times a week (preferably 3).

  3. Promote the team to the appropriate age.  (2021 - youth born 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006)

  4. Start a fundraising plan.

  5. Communicate with VBNU Program Director for practice plans and coaching advice.  

  6. Start to practice and have FUN!


Fundraising is key for any program to travel and compete in tournaments.   Some key fundraising points:

  • Fund-raise throughout the year, not only months or weeks before a tournament.  Last minute fundraising can be stressful.

  • Have athletes part of the fundraising.  This will help the athletes become responsible for their own activities.

  • Research what people in your community like and try and provide prizes/winnings that make people excited to help.

  • Don't get discouraged if people say 'NO'!  Many groups fund-raise a year and people are not able to support everything.
