Information for juniors about start of season

Training starts on Friday 5 September as usual at 7PM in the leisure centre. There will be training every Friday until 19 December except on 24 and 31 October.

Unfortunately Andrew had resigned as junior development officer. A variety of people will be running the training sessions until we find a permanent replacement starting with Cliff and myself on Friday.

For those juniors old enough to take part, the start-of-season tournament is on 14 September in Melksham. Please let Neil know if you want to play.

The first SWVA grand-prix is on 4 October in Bournemouth. Later dates can be found on the SWVA website.

There is now a page with a list of dates.

More details of what is happening will be post here when available.

Start of season

The 2014-15 season is almost upon us. We start training at the leisure centre again on Friday 5 September.
The WVA has yet to publish the fixtures for the season. However the start-of-season tournament will be on 14 September in Melksham.
There is also a referee course on 28 September at Lavington School; if you are interested in attending then you need to book on the Volleyball England website but let one of the committee know as some funds are available to help pay for the course.
This article will be up dated as more information is known.
