Take a look at the our new uniform for 2014! This is the girls top but the boys will be very similar. The club will be providing playing tops free of charge for this season only, so if you joined us last year and had to purchase a new top you will not be disadvantaged. All players will need to make sure they have their shorts organised. These can be purchased from the Australian Volleyball Warehouse 1a Neutron Place, Rowville VIC 3178

Welcome to Season 2014 for Yarra Ranges Volleyball. I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday time. Congratulations to all our Victorian Beach representatives who have certainly been keeping active over the summer. We look forward to getting back to work and backing up the great season from both the men and women for 2013.
Training will commence on Tuesday Feb 11th from 7pm-9pm at Yarra Valley Grammar in Ringwood. We will train Tuesdays and Thursdays and the pre-season period will offer coaches a chance to select teams and determine appropriate levels. If you are new to the club in 2014 you are very welcome to come along as we dont have specific ‘trials’. Please be aware that there will be a pre-season registration fee of $50 that will be payable upon arrival. Regular season fees will be payable with discounts for early-bird full payments.
I look forward to seeing you on the 11th!
