6. What is the deadline to register a team?
SAVA starts to accept teams at the AGM (Annual General Meeting) that is generally hosted at the end of March, beginning of April. The date, time and location are posted on the website a few weeks before the meeting. Best chance to get a team into the league is to attend the AGM and be one of the first to arrive to be put on the waiting list. Teams can be added to the waiting list from the AGM (March/April) until the teams are set at the end of August. Team are still encouraged to contact the league if interested for the following year so they can be contacted with important information to increase their chances to be added to the league the following year.

To inquire about entering a team or to be added to the waiting list contact the President at president@savavball.ca

7. Can I join the league without a team?
There are two options to join the league without a team.
i) Players looking for teams: Players can post their contact details and any additional information to improve their chances to be picked up by a team. The more information (level preferred, volleyball experience, etc.) helps to increase your chance to be picked up by a team.
ii) Sub List: This option is ideal for players that cannot commit full time to a team, but still want to play volleyball. It’s also a good option for players looking to find a team. It is a chance to play with different teams and potentially get picked up by a team. If you play with the team they can decide if they like playing with you and you can decide if you like playing with them without having to commit to that teams roster.

8. What is the sub list?
The sub list is a pool of players that are available to play co-ed and/or womens. There is a small fee to join the sub list ($10) that goes towards covering the insurance required to play in the league. Women can sign up for both co-ed and women’s when creating their sub list profile. For no fee, females already on a co-ed roster have the option to join the sub list for the womens league and vice versa (females on a womens roster may join the sub list for the co-ed league).
The players on the sub list can play for multiple teams each week and multiple teams for the duration of the regular season. It allows a player to play for multiple teams without having to commit to one team. It increases the chances for a player to find a team that fits their skill level.
