St Albert Sturgeon (SAS) Volleyball Association history dates back to 2008 when the St Albert Saints Volleyball Association was formed. We are not for profit organization 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 season, when we merged with Sturgeon Volleyball Association to become St Albert Sturgeon (SAS) Volleyball Association. 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, offering many opportunities for our youth to learn and compete at the highest level in the sport of Volleyball. In the 2020 season we accommodated to support 25 teams for the season; our largest team count to date. Unfortunately the 2020 season was cut short due to COVID 19 pandemic. The 2021 season did not proceed with a competitive season, but we were still able to proceed with a developmental season. In 2022, with the season back in full swing after the pandemic, we fielded the most teams to date at 28.
