Stars at a Glance

North Shore Stars is a not-for-profit girls volleyball club dedicated to the athletic and personal development of young athletes in North Vancouver. Through volleyball, Stars is committed to developing young leaders in the community.

Our club was formed in 2006 to foster the physical, social and psychological growth of youth. We run 5-6 volleyball teams between the U14 and U18 age levels, competing in various tournaments across the lower mainland as well as Nationals across Canada.

"Helping foster continued love for the sport of volleyball"

Why Choose Us?

Our hope is to provide a service to help foster continued love for the sport of volleyball and apply the lessons learned both on and off the court. We will strive to develop the abilities of each player within the concept of a team.

How it Works

The club volleyball season runs from January to May or June, depending on the age group. Tryouts are held in November/December of the previous year. Each team will practice 2-3 times a week and will play in several weekend tournaments. Some tournaments may be out of town and include travel by plane for older teams.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Volleyball is an expensive sport. We are seeking sponsorship to help cover the cost of equipment, uniforms and travel expenses. If you know a company that might be interested in sponsoring us, please pass along our Sponsorship Flyer, or contact us.

2021 House League

We are offering a different Stars program this season. In service of keeping youth girls involved in the sport of volleyball in some way during a global pandemic, we will be running a series of age appropriate House Leagues instead of organized teams. This means no tryouts, and no club teams.

Starting in January, the House league will be similar to our Youth Leagues with a Train and Play type of program. Priority registration will be given to former players and Youth League participants. Please check back here for more info in the coming months.

A Farewell to Our President

After 14 years of running Stars, our President Dori Howard has decided to retire to focus on her retreat centre on Salt Spring Island. Dori started Stars in 2006 with a vision to provide an opportunity for more youth girls to play volleyball on the North Shore. She initially intended to see the club through until her daughter finished playing in 2011, but continued with the dedication and support of many coaches and admin volunteers. We'd like to thank Dori for her years of giving back to our community and helping give countless girls an opportunity to play this amazing sport.

More Than Just Volleyball

The North Shore Stars are a little different from other club volleyball teams. We believe in developing leadership in young girls through more than just volleyball, including:

  • Modeling leadership through our coaching and team activities
  • Supporting community development through contributions to Harvest Project and Athletics for Kids (A4K) throughout the season as a part of our fundraising activities, as well as providing volunteers for the annual Rotary Ride for Rescue.
  • Encouraging and mentoring former Stars players to be junior coaches
  • Encouraging U16-U18 players to junior coach at the Stars Youth League

Each year, we drop off several bins of groceries collected during tryouts to the Harvest Project. As a result of our 2018 fundraising efforts, we were able to donate $1,500 to Athletics 4 Kids (A4K).
