SNV JUNIOR PROGRAM

Please read our Covid-19 Guidelines before considering your participation in any SNV program.


SNV has a well established Junior Program for young athletes with qualified coaches, team managers, structured training, club uniforms and a calendar of great events. All coaches have current Working With Children Checks and SNV is a registered Active Kids Provider. Most of our Junior opportunities happen at Olympic Park as that is where the most volleyball courts are!

This will be required as soon as you are selected in a team; it is not required to trial.

SEASON FEES:
The season cost for training and games in 2020 is $350 per player. There has been a price increase to cover the rising costs of court hire and also the significant increase in the cost of SVL entry. Shorts are $30 and shirts may be personalised and purchased to keep for $50 or borrowed for the season with a bond. SNV is a registered Active Kids Provider and an opportunity to redeem one voucher will be provided when team offers are emailed.

During March & April there will be other training sessions & venues to be confirmed. Training is an essential part of the program and your commitment to being there each week is expected.

ADDITIONAL TRAINING:

GAMES:
Under 18s will have Division 1 and Division 2 and will play on Friday nights at Olympic Park. All teams are required to also do duty approximately every second week so the time commitment can be around 3 – 3.5 hours.
