The CCAA Announces Providence as Host of the 2025 Men’s Volleyball National Championship

Feb 26, 2024 | Uncategorized

OTTERBURNE, MB – Providence University College is pleased to be hosting the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Men’s Volleyball Championship next year on March 3-9, 2025.

“In its history, volleyball has been one of Manitoba’s flagship sports. The CCAA is excited for Providence to host this prestigious event. We have no doubt it will be an elevated Men’s Volleyball National Championship in 2025,” says CCAA Volleyball Convenor, Matthew Schnarr.

The event will take place in the Town of Niverville at the recently constructed Community Resource and Recreation Centre that first opened its doors in 2021. “This is a major collegiate sporting championship coming to Southeastern Manitoba,” shares Russell Willms, Providence’s Director of Athletics. “It is really a big announcement for Providence, Niverville and this region of the province!”

This is a historic milestone as Providence becomes the first institution in Manitoba to host a CCAA Championship since rejoining the CCAA as an Athletic Conference in 2019. Manitoba will be welcoming the best teams from across the country including the five other CCAA regional conferences – the Pacific Western, Alberta & Saskatchewan(ACAC), Ontario, Quebec (RSEQ), and Atlantic Canada.

The Providence Pilots Men’s Volleyball team, led by Head Coach Paul Armbruster, are gearing up for next season with the hopes of representing Manitoba in the 2025 National Championship games at home. They are well on their way, as this past weekend on Sunday, Feb 25, 2024, they claimed their second consecutive Provincial Championship 3-0 win against the Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) Blazers. The team is heading to Victoria to play the 2024 Men’s Volleyball Nationals on the week of March 6th.
