Luther Invitational Volleyball Tournament
Did You Know?
Luther students, even though from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of tightly woven community of students, parents, alumni, teachers and staff. Typically 12% of the school’s student body originates from outside of Canada.
Did you know there is a 3rd floor to the boy's dorm? It was traditionally assigned to upper level students who were more mature & responsible. Students who lived up there in the 1940’s confessed, in hushed tones, to having a radio when those devices were against school policy.
Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.
The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.
Through the A Time To Build capital campaign, we have added 46,897 square feet of space to Luther College High School, including the Semple gymnasium - the largest high school gym in Regina.
The Tuck Shop for snacks was at the bottom of the south stairs going to what is now the cafeteria. The legendary beans in a cone were considered a healthier & cheaper alternative to what students purchased across the street at the Aintree.
The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.
The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!
Luther Invitational Volleyball Tournament (LIVT)
The senior girls volleyball tournament was started in 1998 on the initiative of Ann Johnson (coach and teacher) and Mark Leupold (coach and teacher). The intent was to showcase our senior girls volleyball team, Luther’s amazing hospitality and spirit, and to give our students another chance to organize a successful event. The planning and execution of the tournament includes the help of many staff members, teachers, parents and students. It traditionally takes place on the last weekend of September. Tickets can be purchased at the door. If you have any questions please contact Mr. Jon Graf or Ms. Kim Greenman (tournament directors).
