2024-25 volleyball schedules announced

CALGARY – The Calgary Dinos volleyball team will open the 2024-25 regular season on its home court, announced Thursday with the complete release of the Canada West schedule by the conference office.

This season will feature a schedule format change announced by the conference last October, placing increased emphasis on regional rivalries. In both men’s and women’s volleyball, each school has four annual opponents they will play each season and will rotate through the remaining teams. Men’s teams will play six of eight opponents each year, while women’s teams will play six of nine opponents each year.

The league slate will officially kick off Oct. 18-19 when Manitoba comes to the Jack Simpson Gym.

Week 2 sees the Dinos men travel to Winnipeg while the women have a bye before heading to Regina for their second weekend of action on the young season.

Calgary won’t have to leave the province again until well into the New Year, starting a lengthy stretch close by Nov. 8-9 for a Crowchild Classic weekend at home against Mount Royal. After a week off, the Dinos head to Alberta (Nov. 22-23) before closing out the first semester hosting UBC Okanagan (Nov. 29-30).

The first competition of 2025 also will take place inside The Jack as Saskatchewan comes to campus for a pair of contests Jan. 10-11. 

The Dinos close out the upcoming season with three of their final four series on the road, starting Jan. 17-18 with a trip to Abbotsford, B.C. to take on UFV. Trinity Western comes to Calgary Jan. 24-25 for the final home matches of the regular season before finishing things out at Brandon (Jan. 31-Feb. 1) and at MacEwan (Feb. 14-15).

This year will also feature a new playoff format that sees 10 teams qualify for the postseason. Playoffs begin with a best-of-three play-in series Feb. 21 to 23, featuring the #7 seed hosting the #10 seed and the #8 seed hosting the #9 seed. A best-of-three quarterfinal round follows from Feb. 28 to March 1, with a “Final Four” format for the semis and bronze/gold medal games taking place the following weekend.

All roads lead to the province of Manitoba for this year’s U SPORTS national championships. The University of Manitoba hosts the women’s tournament March 14-16 in Winnipeg, while Brandon University welcomes the men’s tournament March 21-23.
