Reds Volleyball Association is excited to announce the establishment of the new Youth Volley League (YVL) and Youth Volley League – Kids. YVL and YVL – Kids are new competition opportunities for athletes in Y3-12 to continue to play indoor volleyball in Term 4. Schools, clubs, groups of friends or individuals are welcome to be involved in these fun, central, inclusive and action packed competitions.
The YVL is an 8 round league, team duties are not required and the competition serves as excellent preparation for teams heading to the Australian Volleyball Schools Cup on the Gold Coast and for teams looking for a fun, exciting competition after the WA Schools Cup and Junior League competitions. YVL – Kids offers a 6 round opportunity for primary school aged children to play volleyball in a fun and educational game environment.
The purpose of the competition is centred on offering junior volleyball athletes, their friends and families with an affordable competition, played at central venues with activations and engagement opportunities for participants and spectators.
Reds Director of Volleyball Max Wason is looking forward to the commencement of the new competition.
“The Youth Volley League is an exciting opportunity for athletes to continue to play indoor volleyball in Term 4. We are thrilled to launch these competitions and offer new competitive playing opportunities for players to develop and enjoy our great game,” Wason said.
Reds President Anthony Meo commended the work of the Reds team in keeping costs down to create an incredibly affordable competition opportunity.
“Costs for playing indoor sports such as indoor volleyball have risen sharply in recent years due to a number of factors. This low-cost competition will place less pressure on junior sporting costs for families and allow more people to get involved with volleyball.
“The recent announcement by the State Government to double the funding per participant of the KidSport program means that eligible players will be able to play in this competition for free and that is great for players, their families and our sport,” Meo said.
Reds Vice President Logan Vanderweide is excited about keeping the competition central for players from right around Perth.
“Aquinas College and Penrhos College are two of the venues locked in to host the competition and we are excited about keeping the competition central to Perth for all players to reduce travel time and ensure more time is spent on court and having fun,” Vanderweide said.
YVL will commence on Friday 13 October, while YVL – Kids will begin on Friday 20 October. These competitions are the first extended domestic leagues hosted by the Reds Volleyball Association.
