I hope everyone in our community had a Happy and Safe Christmas break with lots of ‘peppering’ in the back yard, beach or pool!
The New Year always brings a moment of reflection and our team are proud to pause and celebrate our community success in Volleyball SA last year with another year of strong membership growth, more children experiencing school Volleyball clinics last year than ever before and increasing numbers of clubs and associations who have joined up to be a part of Volleyball SA. We, as always, thank all our members, coaches, officials, parents and volunteers who have given their time to make our sport great throughout 2018 and hope they continue to enjoy the many rewards from being involved in community sport.
In looking forward to 2019 we are excited to start the year with “Summer Sets” the first of its kind combining Charity and Inclusive events where everyone is welcome along with Social days and the elite SA Open. The Summer Sets Festival running for 9 days straight involves every one of our office team and we will be on the beach throughout so please bear with us in answering your emails and phone calls in between! We really need your support so if you are not playing, please consider coming to volunteer for a few hours and/or bring a friend to watch the games from the massive grandstand at Glenelg.
All sorts of social competitions and events will be running as usual at a club/centre near you (check our website to find out your nearest one) and the newly named SA Volleyball League (formerly State and Junior League) will be gearing up as usual to be a big year. See you on the beach starting tomorrow!
