EKVC is looking for Board members and Volunteers

  • Are you a volleyball player/parent or someone who just loves the game?
  • Are you someone who believes team sport is good for physical and mental health?
  • Can you see yourself helping communities rebound from Covid through team sport?

Our club is looking for new volunteers at both the governance and the program levels of our well-established, growing organization.

We need volunteers in the following areas;

  • 3-7) EKVC Board Members (to promote, plan and lead approximately 3 hrs/month)
  • 5-10) EKVC Committee Members (to raise awareness and resources approximately 4 hrs/mth)

NOTE: EKVC personnel are available to orient, train, assist all volunteers

You don't have to have an athlete registered with the Club to help develop the sport of volleyball in the East Kootenays, you just need to be passionate about sport and be committed to advancing and promoting volleyball within the community.

EKVC is looking for a minimum of 3) new board members and at least 5) volunteers to ensure that the Club can offer programs and services seamlessly throughout the year. 

Without volunteers, EKVC doesn't have the capacity to provide all the services and programs that athletes currently benefit from such as local and regional tournaments; Athlete Development which includes  strength training, nutrition, yoga and mental toughness;  Awards for Post-secondary students; Fundraising to keep the registrations cost down; Uniforms and equipment;  and many more.

EKVC would love to see alumni, parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles assist with committees such as:

  • Fundraising/Sponsorship,
  • Uniforms & Equipment,
  • Communications (social media, website, email),
  • Events and Tournaments,
  • Finance,
  • Officiating,
  • Athlete Development,
  • Policy Development, to name a few.

If you would like more information to become a Board Member, please see open positions and job descriptions here. Send in a Notice of Interest to be considered and added to the ballot.

If you would like more information about becoming a volunteer, contact EKVC with your name, contact information and Volunteer Role of Interest directly to this email: admin@ekvcvolleyball.com

 

Annual General Meeting

Mark your calendars to attend the 2021-2022 Annual General Meeting taking place on Monday November 8th via Zoom.

The evening starts at 7pm with the opportunity to learn about our successes and challenges, see the Club Financials as well as connect with the people running the organization.

A notice will follow for Election information as we are looking for volunteer board members and committee members to assist with the numerous tasks that it takes to provide the volleyball community with programming from year to year. Consider sending a Notice of Interest yourself or pass along the information to friends and family including grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins who feel that it's important to be involved.


Planning for 2022?

Here’s a peek at Volleyball Alberta’s 2022 Indoor Tournament Schedule. Locations and venues will be released at a later date as Volleyball Alberta secures additional facilities. This is a tentative schedule and is subject to change without notice. Volleyball Alberta will do its best to update clubs as changes are made and new information is released. We are not responsible for any accommodation issues due to changes.

***IMPORTANT VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS SUMMARY***

  • Volleyball Alberta members who are vaccine eligible need to be fully vaccinated or have proof of medical exemption.
  • Refund requests will not be granted if VA or our facilities institute, voluntarily or non-voluntarily (imposed restrictions), additional COVID-19 measures after cancellation deadlines or partway through a program. Volleyball Alberta advises that all vaccine eligible individuals (12+) be fully vaccinated, or have proof of a medical exemption, in advance of registering for any program to reduce potential interruptions to participation.
  • Most of our facilities, either voluntarily or non-voluntarily, are requiring proof of vaccination or medical exemptions for all vaccine eligible individuals (12+) who enter their facilities*
  • If today’s facility entry requirements are still in place during our indoor club season, it will not be possible to compete, coach, attend, or referee at VA events without either being fully vaccinated or medically exempt (testing may still be required).

For more information see the Volleyball Alberta website.
