About Us

NanaimoSport began as a co-ed recreational volleyball league with a focus on fun. It has developed into one of Nanaimo's best sport and social experiences for people over the age of 18. We have evolved into an organization that accommodates all levels of competition from beginner to advanced. We welcome all types of players including singles and whole teams. Our goal is to create social opportunities for adult fun and fitness in Nanaimo.  

Melissa Kristiansen

Mother, wife, teacher and lover of the outdoors.

Melissa moved to Nanaimo in 2001. At the time, there wasn't a whole lot going on in the small city so with a baby on her hip, she created her own fun—a volleyball league for all levels. Since then, the league has been offering opportunities for adults to stay active, be social and have fun! Melissa loves being part of such a wonderful community of people, which keeps her involved in organizing both indoor and outdoor volleyball opportunities. 

Jason Kristiansen

Father, husband, computer boss and fisherman extraordinaire.

You'll find Jason at all of the events run by Nanaimo Sport. He always enjoys being part of the action. Now that he has two teenage boys, it has become even more important to keep up his game; so he can compete with them! Just look for the busy guy with the giant smile and you've found him. He's always ready to help.
