Hunter Volleyball is thrilled to launch its inaugural Junior Social Competition (JSC), starting 14th October 2020 and running for nine weeks.
In 2020, we have hosted a number of come-and-try activities and also offered an eight week Spikeroos junior participation program for 12-17yo starting in Term 1 (which was unfortunately impacted by restrictions on community sport due to the COVID-19 pandemic).
In Term 3, we resumed activities and hosted another Spikeroos program for 48 kids in U15 and U17 groups. In Term 4, we have pared back the Spikeroos program to a group of 24 U15 boys and girls only, and have added an U17 Junior Social Competition to our Term 4 programming.
The JSC gives ‘graduates’ from the Spikeroos program a dedicated space to meet friends during weekly games, develop the concepts learned during Spikeroos, and extend themselves through regular social game play.
In 2021 we aim to continue the expansion of our offerings for juniors by offering an U15 and U17 JSC and strengthening the pathway from junior participation into leagues and adult social competitions over time. We also hope to identify venues in the Maitland area in which to deliver our popular Spikeroos programs.
