Mo­men­tum for Spike­zone

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Reg­is­tra­tions are rolling in nicely for Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham’s term four Spike­zone pro­gram.

Vol­ley­ball’s ver­sion of Aus­kick, Spike­zone is de­signed to in­tro­duce up­per pri­mary schoolaged chil­dren to the sport in a fun en­vi­ron­ment with ac­cred­ited coaches.

Af­ter run­ning Spike­zone ses­sions in term two, where we had pro­grams at Mur­toa and Hor­sham, we were suc­cess­ful in gain­ing a dozen young­sters into our ju­nior com­pe­ti­tion.

While the next pro­gram co­in­cides with the end of the Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham do­mes­tic sea­son, there is a Pri­mary Schools Cup at the State Vol­ley­ball Cen­tre in late Novem­ber.

In­ter­ested Wim­mera schools could quite eas­ily get their stu­dents brought up to speed by get­ting qual­ity coach­ing in the lead-up to this event.

Vol­ley­ball de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Tim Pop­ple is work­ing with Hor­sham Holy Trin­ity Lutheran Col­lege, while Gary David­son, at Hor­sham West, has two teams pre­par­ing for Greater West­ern Re­gion Pri­mary School fi­nals.

The Spike­zone pro­gram will run on Wed­nes­days with ses­sions at St Brigid’s Col­lege gym­na­sium be­tween 4.45pm and 5.45pm.

There will be a ses­sion a week for the next six weeks.

For a $15 reg­is­tra­tion fee, each par­tic­i­pant re­ceives a back­pack, ball, t-shirt and drink bot­tle.

Reg­is­tra­tions are es­sen­tial and can be com­pleted on the Vol­ley­ball Vic­to­ria web­site.

Look for the Play Vol­ley­ball and Spike­zone op­tion and fol­low the links to the Hor­sham Zone reg­is­tra­tion point.
