The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham of­fi­cials are tak­ing en­tries for the com­pe­ti­tion’s up­com­ing sum­mer sea­son start­ing on Fe­bru­ary 20 for ju­niors and C Grade and Fe­bru­ary 22 for A and B grades.

The as­so­ci­a­tion is look­ing for­ward to build­ing on mo­men­tum from last sea­son, which had num­bers push over the 200 mark.

With the suc­cess of teams at var­i­ous com­pe­ti­tions to­wards the end of 2016, there is op­ti­mism for more teams com­ing for­ward in 2017. The as­so­ci­a­tion caters for all play­ers from ju­niors to A Grade. Boys and girls can com­pete at a level suited to their abil­ity in mixed teams, while males and fe­males from the cor­po­rate world can play to­gether in C or B grades.

Teams and in­di­vid­u­als in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing have un­til Fe­bru­ary 15 to reg­is­ter.

Phan­toms ex­cite­ment

Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham was well rep­re­sented at the first trial camp for the Phan­toms Vol­ley­ball Club in Bendigo.

More than 70 play­ers from across western Vic­to­ria par­tic­i­pated in the two-day camp, which gave coaches of all five teams the op­por­tu­nity to look at play­ers for their re­spec­tive teams for the state league sea­son start­ing March 25.

The club has signed a ma­jor spon­sor­ship deal with the Bendigo Sta­dium, con­firm­ing five home games at the venue.

Apart from num­bers, it was the qual­ity of play­ers who at­tended that stood out for all coaches.

This will en­able the club to build greater depth and push hon­ours in sea­son 2017.

The in­creased in­ter­est has re­sulted in the club mak­ing the de­ci­sion to en­ter a Men’s di­vi­sion-three team for the first time, which will give those younger play­ers the op­por­tu­nity to gain greater ex­pe­ri­ence.

There will be a fi­nal trial camp in Ballarat on Fe­bru­ary 25-26 for those who missed se­lec­tion. Any play­ers in­ter­ested in play­ing for Phan­toms in 2017 should con­tact me on 0487 824599. for higher
