In all U15 and below age categories, Volleyball Alberta mandates that all athletes on the score sheet must start one of the first 2 sets and no substitutions can be made until 15 points or if there is an injury. Any athletes are eligible to start and play during a 3rd set.
In all U16 and above age categories, teams are strongly encouraged to continue to use Developmental Substitution principles for the entire season as it is important for all athletes in the age class to get an opportunity to apply their skills and tactics in a competition environment.
EV Sea Dragons believes in development of all athletes during competition opportunities. Playing time is a privilege and is determined on work ethic, team chemistry and player performance.
