1) STATE LEAGUE LAUNCHES

State League Round 1 took place last weekend and those that made the trip up the hill were not disappointed! There was some great Volleyball on display and some very close matches which demonstrates the evenness this season!  For all results and future fixtures visit; www.volleyballsa.com.au/stateleague/fixtures

Round 1 was also University Round and we saw the 3 universities out promoting the rebranded ‘University Nationals’. State League athletes who are current students invited at any of the 3 universities are invited to trial. Prospective players are encouraged to contact the following representatives for more information;

2) CONGRATULATIONS JANA

Congratulations to VSA Academy Tier 2 athlete Jana Milutinovic who has been identified as one of the 8 players in her age group standing selection for the FIVB World U19 Beach Volleyball Championships, Nanjing China. The 2 players selected from the 8 will be going to a preparation camp in China in July and competing from 10-15 July in Nanjing, China. It is a great achievement for Jana to be selected in the top 8 given this is only her third year in the VSA Academy program. Coach Edwina McCarron stated “Jana applies herself 100% in technical training, strength and conditioning and school and she does a great job planning so to manage her busy schedule”. Volleyball SA want to wish Jana luck in the selection process.
