Owing to this championship program teams have gained immense momentum and popularity over the past 14 years. Undoubtedly, DSI has successfully and steadfastly fostered Sri Lanka’s national sport – volleyball through the years bearing immense respect for the national game.

This year the organisers hope to attract a record of over 5,500 teams in an effort to popularise the sport in virtually every school around the island. The championship tournament will be conducted in District, Provincial and National levels, under both male and female categories.
