Club Fees & Financial Assistance
The Canuck Stuff Volleyball Club is a non-profit organization run by a volunteer Board of Directors. The fees your athlete is charged are actual costs for uniforms, hotels, tournament fees, AVA registration, coaches honorariums, gym rentals paid to the Volleydome, physical training, volleyballs, etc. The difference in fees is due to the age groups having different expenses such as the number of out of town tournaments, hotel costs etc.
The Canuck Board of Directors are proud of our efforts in keeping club fees as low as possible every season, while offering the best possible program for your son or daughter. We do have a casino license and our next event will be in 2021. The proceeds from our Casino are used to draw down the cost of athletes fees with about $50,000 dollars having been applied to this years fees. We will require at least 2 parent volunteers from each team to work the Casino next year in order to cover our volunteer commitment.
We have structured our fees for this year as best we can at this point by creating a Developmental Season Fee which includes practice time, competitive athlete registration fees, uniforms, coach honorariums and administrative costs to cover the costs from Dec. 1st 2020 to mid April 2021, that comes to $1730.00 per athlete. We have also created a separate fee to cover the cost of the league/competition season. The amount for that portion will $450.00 and includes the league registration/entry fee, and a portion of the coach honorarium and administrative costs. The possibility of there being a Provincial or National Championship is still in question and will be dealt with separately if, and when a firm decision made by Volleyball Alberta and Volleyball Canada. Athletes, coaches, and parents will need to evaluate the current situation at that time and the related costs to decide if the want to participate, at which time we can collect the money necessary to cover those expenses. It will vary from team to team because at this point the plan for Nationals is to host various age groups across the country from Edmonton to Montreal.
The PROJECTED club fees for the 2020/21 season are posted on the right.

Kelly Grosky Financial Assistance Program
The Canuck Stuff Volleyball Club will be able to offer limited financial assistance to families that require help to cover the cost of various volleyball programs through the Kelly Grosky Athlete Subsidy Fund. The fund is named after Kelly Grosky who was an important part of the Canuck and Volleydome coaching staff and embodied so many of the attributes embedded in our philosophy. Kelly passed away in November of 2014 and we are proud to name our subsidy program in his honor. Kelly strongly believed in his adage of "Everybody plays....Everybody wins"
The Kelly Grosky Financial Assistance Program is designed to offer support to those promising athletes who have attained a certain degree of volleyball skill, have a positive and supportive attitude towards their fellow athletes and coaches, but who also may require financial assistance to help them cover the cost of fees associated with playing volleyball. To be eligible, the athlete must clearly state through their application, that financial support would indeed be necessary for them to participate in a specific volleyball program. All monies awarded will go directly towards the volleyball program in which the athlete is registered, which may include club or recreational youth programs run by either the Volleydome or Canuck. In certain cases, athletes may also apply to the Kelly Grosky Subsidy fund for financial assistance with other expenses such as Provincial or National team programs that will help them continue in their volleyball careers.
The student athlete and parent will be required to complete an application form and provide a recent income tax assessment for submission to the Canuck Stuff office. The applications will then be reviewed by a committee appointed by the Canuck Stuff Board of Directors. The board is responsible for allocating the funds at their discretion on a case by case basis subject to the needs and the amount of funds available at that time. Please submit your application before Dec 10th.
The application form can be downloaded HERE or obtained in confidence from the Club Administrator, Brian Gullekson, 403-973-7701.
