Welcome to Volleyball Ballarat!
NEW MIXED SOCIAL SEASON
We are excited to begin our new life at the Minerdome (Ballarat Basketball Stadium) next week, beginning with our new Social Competition season on Monday July 22nd. This first night will be a lightning spike rapid game evening so we can assess new teams and new players that have registered to play. It will be a gold coin donation and a chance to check out the new facilities, collect your Minerdome membership cards (and learn about all the benefits that come with them), and ensure all teams and players understand how the competition will operate going forward. Anyone wishing to enter their own team or individual players who would like to join an existing team, please email us with your details and we’ll contact you to make arrangements.
Entry will be via the main sports doors on the north side of the building where the main carpark, swim school and badminton stadium are. As you enter, fees can be paid at the Volleyball Ballarat Office window on the right hand side. It will be a Gold Coin donation to play this week and then after that all fees going forward will be team based with each team required to pay $40 to the office prior to starting their match. These can also be prepaid by direct deposit prior to competition for a 10% discount with details to be sent out for this during the week.
All members will need to be registered with Volleyball Victoria in order to participate in matches. New members will need to have completed their registration online by August and this will cover you until April 2020. For further details please scroll down to theVolleyball Victoria player registrationssection
Until further notice, all training sessions will still be held at the Ballarat Grammar Rintel Centre on a Tuesday night from 7pm. Experienced and new players are welcome to attend. Training costs will be $2 per session or $25 pre-payment for all training sessions until the end of the year (can be arranged at training).
INVITED PLAYER OPPORTUNITIES
Beginning in August, invited players will have the opportunity to play in “A Grade” match from 8pm-9pm on a Tuesday night following Open Trainings at the Ballarat Grammar Rintel Centre. The aim of these matches is to provide some high level match play for experienced and/or highly skilled players who are looking to develop outside of our social competition. The cost for these matches will be $5.
