2019-20 CW Volleyball schedule announced

    The Golden Bears and Pandas quest to regain their Canada West and U SPORTS banners begins on October 18th

    By Connor Hood on June 10, 2019

    The Golden Bears and Pandas quest to regain their Canada West and U SPORTS banners begins on October 18th, as Canada West officially announced the 2019/20 VB schedule on Tuesday.

    The Pandas will see action in 24 games, including 12 at the Saville Community Sports Centre. The Bears, meanwhile, will play just 22 games, following Regina removal of their men’s volleyball program in 2018.

    The Bears and Pandas will open their schedule on October 18th and 19th, as they host the Trinity Western Spartans. Alberta will also host Winnipeg (Nov. 15 & 16), UBC (Nov. 29 & 30), Manitoba (Jan. 24 & 25), Calgary (Jan. 31 & Feb. 1) and Regina (Feb. 14 & 15) at Saville next season.

    The Pandas will also host a pair of non-conference tournaments next season, including the Pandas-Griffins Invitational (Sept. 12-14), and the New Year's Classic (Dec. 27-29).

    The Pandas are coming off a third-straight U SPORTS medal, earning a national bronze at home last March. The Pandas are also looking for a second Canada West title in four years, after earning their 18th conference title in 2017. 

    The CW playoffs will get underway on February 21st with the conference quarter-finals. At the conclusion of conference play, the nation's best volleyball teams will stay in the West, as the Manitoba Bisons host the men's national tournament, while the Calgary Dinos host the women's tournament (March 12-15).
