President’s Report 2013

2013 was a remarkable year for the UTS Volleyball Club. The return to a centralised training environment allowed a better-unified approach to all aspects of the club. This resulted in some great outcomes on and off the court.

The “UTS Sports Club of the Year Award” was a fantastic tribute to all those who have made this a successful season.

 

Performance in competitions:

The Club competed in all State Volleyball NSW events including the State Cups, Sydney Volleyball League and Junior Metro Comps. UTS combined with Sydney Uni continue to compete in the Senior national elite competition, the Australian Volleyball League. The club also sent indoor teams to the Australian University Games in Gold Coast. There were also several teams that played throughout the year weekly in our self-managed social competition.

Some of the highlights of the competitive season include the following:

UNIVERSITY GAMES:
EUG’s: Silver Men’s Division one, Bronze Women’s Division one

Off the Court:

“Club Culture” is highly valued in the volleyball club. We encourage all members to watch and support other teams within the club at all competitions. To encourage the bond amongst our members, a variety of social activities were held throughout the year including the Australia Day Picnic, Trivia Night, Karaoke Night, Pub Catch Ups and End of Season Party,

The return to a centralised training venue and night also greatly aided the “Club Culture”. Members were able to connect with others from different teams and coaches were able to share ideas and support each other.

 

Goals for 2014:

In 2014 we aim to maintain our status as one of the strongest clubs in NSW and Australia as a whole. UTS Volleyball will continue to provide the highest level of professionalism in all our volleyball programs. From the elite national league player to the social player on a Thursday night, UTSVC will commit to provide an environment where volleyball players can enjoy the sport at their appropriate levels.

To achieve this we have a number of minor goals including:

• Implement a student based beginner to intermediate training camp.

• Maintain and strengthen UTS student involvement in both the club participation and the executive

• Continue the development and implementation of our junior boys and girls program.

• Maintain and if court allocations allow, expand the number of UTS representative teams in NSW competitions

• Compete and improve results in all NSW state cups

• Improve on our Sydney Volleyball League results

• Retain our title of NSW Club Champions

• Continue our participation and improve our results in the Australian Volleyball League

• Retain our club of the year status
