On Saturday 5th March we had another record attendance at Junior Trials with an amazing 81 juniors turning up. For the boys session we saw 42 players giving their best under the direction of guest senior coach Mark Munter. We had a new record set for planking at a junior session, with a Gold Ticket awarded to John Sio & Charlie Evans with a time of 05:30 (MM:SS) and special merit to Harrison Perry for showing amazing determination to get to the 5 minute mark.

The next session saw 39 girls turn up for their trials under the direction of Head Coach Deb Chung. The group was split up into 4 teams so everyone could have the opportunity to demonstrate their match play. We saw some power serving by some of the girls and lots of great scrambles in defence. It was great to see some very talented Volleyballers and many showed great potential for developing their skills.

We are very pleased that so many juniors want to play volleyball and attendance was far more than anticipated. Teams will be announced shortly and we thank everyone who came to a Trials.
