The South Peace Volleyball Association was established in December of 2011 by a group of enthusiastic volleyball parents who wanted to support the creation of a new volleyball club for young female athletes in the Grande Prairie region.

Our association is a non-profit society that is not incorporated under the Societies Act of Alberta. It doesn’t have a charitable organization license with the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission at this point.

The association facilitates the coaching staff’s work by looking after certain logistic aspects of the club’s programs and by overseeing the association’s finances.
