Welcome to another exciting season of High School Volleyball. We are so pleased to be hosting this incredible event! We cannot wait to have student athletes on the courts competing again.

Ecole Sir John Franklin High School and St. Patrick High School are pleased to invite you to our community for our annual Senior High School Volleyball tournament.

Please read the tournament details carefully and fill in the online registration form by noon on Thursday, October 13. Teams who register after this time will not be entered into the tournament. Teams who drop out after the registration deadline risk future participation in Spike It

Tournament Dates/Times
Our tournament play will begin at 8:00 am on Friday, October 28. All teams are expected to be in town and ready to play on Friday morning. All six courts will be in full swing for the entire day. We anticipate final games will be scheduled for 3:00 pm on Sunday, October 30.

Age Categories
We will offer 4 age categories.
15U Girls
15U Boys
19U Girls
19U Boys

Please see the information in the Rules Tab on the Spike It website if you are trying to determine the category that your athlete should be in. If you have special cases, they must be approved by the tournament committee prior to noon on Thursday, October 13.

Tournament Fees
All fees are due prior to the start of the tournament.
- Registration fee - $240 per team cheque made out to Ecole Sir John
- Accommodation fee - $25 per room/per night
- Damage Deposit - $300 per room

Tournament Play
Our goal is to provide all teams with a minimum of 5 games throughout the weekend. This year we will be adding 3rd place and consolation games for many categories with the hope of having teams playing their final game of the tournament against a team of similar strength.

Depending upon the number of teams in your age category, only the top three teams from each pool will advance to the Tier One banner playoffs. The remaining teams will have a chance to win the Tier Two banner.

On the registration form, you will be asked to identify the strength of your team this year. This will help us to assign teams for initial pool play. We may have a power pool in certain categories depending upon the responses from our coaches regarding the quality of their teams.
Tournament Accommodations

Yellowknife has many hotels which provide excellent accommodations for our visitors. However, if you would like your teams to stay at the school during the tournament weekend, we will be providing classrooms at Sir John and St. Pat's on a first come, first serve basis. There are facilities in these schools. Room rental is $25 per room/per night. A $300 damage deposit for every room is also required before the tournament begins. The Sir John foods room will be unavailable for team use.

Tournament Rules
Please read through the tournament rules tab to ensure that you are practicing with the same rules that we will be using for the tournament.

Dylan Eastcott, Mark Kilbride and Bridget McLeod are the main tournament organizers. We have a strong supporting cast at our schools which include Rob Hart and Tobi Taylor. If you have specific tournament questions, please direct them to bridget.mcleod@yk1.nt.ca.
