Alberni Airborne Volleyball Club teams participated in their Island Championships at Vancouver Island University (VIU) on April 12–13.

The 14U team competed in a eight- team tournament on both Saturday and Sunday and our 13U and 12U teams participated in a 6 team tournament on the Sun. For many of the girls it was their first time playing at a larger venue like VIU. We are very proud on how much our club has been growing.

All three teams will be heading to Provincials Championships in Abbotsford April 25-27.

The 14U team will be heading to National Championships May 8-11. Both of these tournaments are held at the TRADEX in Abbotsford where there will be games going on at 18 courts all weekend.

Some of our players attended last year but, for many of them this will be their first.
