Atlantic Canada’s Top Volleyball Teams will meet at UNB Saint John

University of New Brunswick Saint John will host the

2016 ACAA Men’s & Women’s Volleyball Championships

February 26th-28th, 2016


February 19th, 2016, SAINT JOHN NB: Some of the best university and college volleyball teams in Atlantic Canada will be coming to UNB Saint John to compete for the ACAA championships February 26th-28th, 2016.

Local youth, parents and community volleyball enthusiasts will see top-quality teams throughout the weekend. The UNB Saint John Seawolves Men’s Volleyball team is currently ranked 9th in Canada and the MSVU Mystics Women’s Team and the Holland College Hurricanes Women’s Team are currently ranked 10th and 14th respectively. This is the first time in many years where it will come down to a battle in many games throughout championship weekend to take home the gold. The difference between walking away empty-handed and walking away with the ACAA banner could could be just a few small errors.

David Munro, Director of Athletics, Recreation & Wellness at UNB Saint John says, “the ACAA men's and women's volleyball championship weekend is the premier event in the ACAA. The top teams are highly competitive this year and will be giving everything they have to take the championship banner back to their own institution.”

The participating teams and seeding will be decided Monday, February 22nd, 2016, immediately after the final ACAA regular season games. The games are open to the public. Tickets are now available for purchase at the UNB Saint John Athletics Department and will also be available at the door on game days.  

Ticket prices: Tournament passes are being sold in advance and at the gate for $15.00. Spectators can buy a day pass at the gate for $10.00.
