Why play Spikezone?

Spikezone is a national participation program aimed to provide children aged 8-13 years the opportunity to play the sport of Volleyball. These weekly competitions are designed to introduce primary aged kids to the sport, develop their skills and to have fun in a social and supportive environment. Volleyball SA is looking to expand the Spikezone program throughout South Australia and aim to provide the opportunity of weekly volleyball to all primary aged students.

Spikezone has modified rules tailored for enjoyment and development. Games are conveniently played after school between 4 and 6PM on various nights of the week. Divisions are divided into Year 4/5 and Year 6/7, and depending on numbers into genders.

Spikezone is a unique program and caters for different genders, backgrounds and skill levels. It provides the chance for primary aged children to be involved in weekly sport and be part of a team. Spikezone also provides a great opportunity for kids to develop their skills and play together prior to other VSA events such as SAPSASA and the Primary Schools Beach Festival.

We currently have many Spikezone competitions across Adelaide and we are always looking to start new programs. Furthermore, VSA are looking to expand into rural areas and provide students from these areas the opportunity to be involved.
