The British Virgin Islands and St. Croix Central High School will each be hosting separate volleyball tournaments in the Virgin Islands Friday through Sunday.

The BVI is hosting the Eastern Caribbean Volleyball Association (ECVA) U23 Men Volleyball Championships at the Multi-Purpose Sports Center in Road Town, Tortola. Nine other Eastern Caribbean countries made the voyage to Tortola to compete for the right to move on the U23 North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation (NORCECA) Championship. Only the winning team will earn the privilege to represent ECVA at the NORCECA U23 event.

The 10 teams are divided into two pools. Group A includes St. Maarten, Grenada, Dominica, Anguilla, and host BVI. Antigua & Barbuda, Saba, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, and the defending champions St. Lucia comprise Group B.
