The goal of Club Accreditation is to provide accountability to all members who participate in the sport, and to strengthen volleyball’s club system by rewarding, recognizing and encouraging clubs to better serve their volleyball community.

WHAT IS THE SEEDING AND TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE FOR SASK CUPS AND PROVINCIALS?
Generally speaking, the tournament structure and seeding is as follows:
- A serpentine seeding system will be utilized to place teams into pools in the preliminary round
- Sask Volleyball reserves the right to adjust the seeding in order to avoid teams from the same club playing in the same pool in the preliminary draw.
- Draws intended to provide each team with 6-8 matches each.
There are, of course, special circumstances that require deviation from this structure. Final decisions are left to the discretion of the tournament organizer. Please refer to the current season’s Club Guide for additional information.
