The Girls' team at our school has competed strongly in our Regional School Competition (Premier Leage, a part of SACCSS competition in North - West suburbs of Melbourne). They have won 1 Grand Final and narrowly lost 2 others in their various age groups. We currently have 8 girls training hard to participate in the Volleyball Victoria Schools Cup, a competition our school has not previously entered. The girls are passionate about their game and, as coach, I would like to give them the best opportunity to compete to their best. Unfortunately, there is no competition available in our region In which the Yera 10 girls can play and we would like to provide them with the opportunity to continue to participate in a sport they love, thus our entry in to the Volleyball Victoria Schools Cup.
Value to the Community
The girls are outstanding role models for our school community. They have competed strongly over the last 3 years and established a new standard of training at our school by initiating training sessions outside of school hours. They have been successful in establishing volleyball as a desired sport for both girls and boys to be involved in, to the extent that development programs are now run outside of school hours to provide further opportunities for young players to participate in volleyball. It is important to promote continued involvement in active sport, and without participation in the Volleyball Victoria Schools Cup, there would be no avenue for them to maintain their involvement. The girls in this team have jumped at the opportunity to pass on their knowledge and passion for the game by assisting in coaching in our development programs.
Why the funds are needed
Provide a safer training and playing environment ( knee pads for team - 10 x $12, pad posts for safer playing area - $400), Playing and training venue is one court shared by many sports and other general activities. Add equipment which improves the training experience (net antennae to provide a more authentic playing experience - 2 sets @ $75, a volleyball cart for more efficient management of drills and improved safety with fewer volleyballs rolling around the floor during training, so fewer interruptions - $100). Some more volleyballs. This would provide the girls with the opportunity to handle the volleyballs more often, get more touches, and even give them a chance to take volleyballs home to be able to work on their skills more often. 5 @ $50.
