7.  The net height for the boys will be 2.35 metres.

8.  The Tournament Draw shall be as follows depending upon the host area and upon berthing.  The following are sample draws if there are 3 berths from one area, 3 plus the host for another area and 1 for the central area.  The host school takes the berth appropriate for their rank in their area.  As all templates for the draws have not yet been created, the draw must be confirmed as accurate by the VISSAA Executive.


 A: South Host B: North Host C: Mid Host
Pool 1: S1, N2, S4, N3 Pool 1: N1, S2, N4, M1 Pool 1: M1, N2, N3, S1
Pool 2: S2, N1, S3, M1 Pool 2: N2, S1, N3, S3 Pool 2: M2, N1, S2, S3

9. The host school will try to provide qualified (trained) minor officials but when it is not possible it will be up to the teams playing to supply one scorekeeper and one lines person for their match (this could be players, parents or teams sitting off).

10.  Dates of the Junior Girls and Junior Boys Volleyball Island Championships must coincide on a continual basis.

11.  A Coaches’ Meeting will be held during the Island Championship to discuss recommendations and tournament business.

New as of June 2012  Berthing for the Junior Girls and Junior Boys Island Volleyball Championships will be determined by ARTICLE X -ISLAND CHAMPIONSHIPS.

Berthing Information  A proportional representation system will be used to allocate berthing for the V.I.S.S.A.A. Junior Girls and Junior Boys Island Championships.

The region with the most participating junior teams in a specific sport is allocated the largest portion of available berths.

The region with the next most participating junior teams in a specific sport is allocated the next largest portion of the available berths.

The region with the fewest number of participating junior teams in a specific sport is allocated the smallest portion of the available berths.

The 8th berth goes to the ‘host’ school.

All teams must have participated in, and will be seeded from the results of their area championship.

No region will ever be allocated less than one berth (not including the host berth).

In the event that all regions have an equal number of teams, the one remaining 7th berth will be allocated by a play-off game, at a mutually agreed upon neutral location, between the third place teams of the two non-host regions.

The 3 area presidents will collaborate to establish and approve the tournament templates.

To help form the tournament draw, the host zone will have their #1 seeded team placed in the pool separate from the other 2 area’s first seeded team.

The allocation of berths to a region is weighted by dividing the number of teams in that region by the quotient. The quotient is figured out by dividing the total number of participating teams by the total number of available berths, which in this case is 7. The 8th berth is granted to the host region school/team. The number of berths for each region will then be rounded using standard rounding procedures.

Example:  North has 10 teams, Mid has 7 teams and South has 8 teams for a total of  25 teams.  25 (total teams)/7 (available berths) = quotient

25/7=3.57 (quotient)
10 teams (North)/3.57 = 2.80 rounded = 3 berths,
7 teams (Mid)/3.57 = 1.96 rounded = 2 berths,
8 teams (South)/3.57 = 2.24 rounded = 2 berths.

16/7=2.28 (quotient)
5 teams (North)/2.28 = 2.19 rounded = 2 berths,
2 teams (Mid)/2.28 = 0.87 rounded = 1 berth,
9 teams (South)/2.28 = 3.94 rounded = 4 berths.

The number of participating teams in each sport for each zone will be determined from those registered with BCSS.  Only teams registered with BCSS in accordance with their registration rules and regulations will be considered as a participating team for the purpose of berthing allocations.
