leaf DSC02615_web

Another reminder that the next Junior Volleyball Grand Prix of the season takes place on  Saturday 15th November 2014  at Wellspings Leisure Centre in Taunton.  It starts at 1 pm. and expected to finish around 5 p.m.  You can enter using the link https://www.swva.org.uk/junior-grand-prix-entry-form and the cost of entering is £15  per team.

Teams are generally made up with three players, but two can play together or you can have a team of four where players rotate in. It is also allowed to include one younger boy in a girls team or one girl up to one year older in a boys team.  The weight of balls should be appropriate to the age group playing and the team with the youngest player will always select the weight of the lightweight balls if there is a dispute.

I would like to make the closing date for entries Saturday 8th November  at 6 p.m.  All players must be registered to take part in the Junior Grand Prix. Player registration can be done by clubs by logging into the SWVA web site with your club login details (available from your club sec or coach) and fill in the Player Registration Form (Name & email adress required). Print off your Team Sheets and hand them into the event organiser. Direct registration to the SW Junior club is only for players who turn up from non VE clubs.
