St Albert Sturgeon (SAS) History

History of St Albert Sturgeon (SAS) Volleyball Association

St Albert Sturgeon (SAS) Volleyball Association history dates back to 2008 when St Albert Saints Volleyball Association was formed. We are not for profit organization that has been setup to provide athletes with the opportunity to experience the wonderful game of Volleyball. We started with only a few teams in 2008 and by 2014 we had 11 teams playing for our club. We operated as the St Albert Saints until 2014 where we than merged with Sturgeon Volleyball Association to become St Albert Sturgeon (SAS) Volleyball Association. We have teams in both male and female categories. With completion of the merger we found ourselves starting the 2015 season with 14 teams, 10 teams on the girl’s side and 4 teams on the boy’s side. We continue to do our best to provide the best coaching possible and to provide as many opportunities as we can for our youth to have the opportunity to learn and compete at the highest level in the sport of Volleyball. The 2020 season we accommodated to support 25 teams for the season our largest team count to date. Unfortunately 2020 season cut short due to COVID 19 pandemic. 2021 season did proceed with a competitive season but we were able to still proceed with a developmental season.
