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!
Junior Sydney Volleyball League (JSVL)
At the beginning of each year, selection trials are held over several sessions and Under 16 and Under 18 teams are selected for participation in the Junior Sydney Volleyball League. The Representative Program requires players to commit to the following:
- weekly training (March – early September)
- Junior Sydney Volleyball League/Sydney Volleyball League competition (JSVL/SVL)
Most training and games throughout the season take place at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Halls
