Jan. 12, 2015 – Holland College has a growing varsity sports program. They’re also becoming experienced National Championship hosts.
The Hurricanes have been awarded the 2016 CCAA Women’s Volleyball National Championship. The bid was approved today at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association’s Winter Board Meeting in Ottawa.
Holland will also host the Men’s Volleyball National Championship this March.
“Holland College is thrilled to be given the opportunity to host back-to-back CCAA volleyball national championships,” said Albert Roche, Athletic Director at the institution. “Bringing this high-caliber level of play to the Island benefits our volleyball community and our program. Moreover, we are poised to deliver a quality student-athlete experience for everyone fortunate enough to make an appearance at Nationals.”
When the opening came up within the Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association to host a second consecutive National Championship, Roche jumped at the opportunity.
“We are enthusiastically waiting for March to welcome our men’s teams to Prince Edward Island and we believe next year we can once again provide a large helping of East-coast hospitality for our CCAA women’s volleyball friends,” said Roche.
Charlottetown is a city with impressive sport, cultural, and meeting facilities, superb volunteers, quality accommodations, great dining, entertainment and shopping experiences and it has a rich event-hosting tradition.
“I truly believe one of the best things about the CCAA is our ability to host championships across the country allowing our student-athletes to experience Canada from coast to coast,” said Roche.
The 2015 CCAA Women’s Volleyball National Championship will be hosted by Cégep Édouard-Montpetit in Longueuil, QC, March 11-14.
