I have attached an updated draw which should show everyone’s first game, and even better – should be a bit easier to read! I have also attached the final pool positions for B Grade so you can double check that I got it right!
Timeout’s in the last 5 minutes are not really in the spirit of a social tournament – we’re not making a rule on it – we’re trying to keep the number of rules to an absolute minimum, but if there’s less than 5 minutes of play left, do you really need a time out?
1 Match added!
We had 2 teams with a 5 hour gap – so we added an extra game. Please note: it won’t count towards their competition points.
The gold medal matches for both grades will be a 3 set match – the 3rd set will be to 15.
All other matches will be time limited. The 3rd set in those matches will be to 25 – think best of 5 sets.
The 3rd set will count as a set if the score is 13 or over with a 2 point lead.

Also available is the canteen menu. The canteen will help some of our local juniors who will be travelling overseas to represent Australia in Thailand.
We look forward to seeing you all there.
Hopefully everyone has noticed the website has had some updates over the break.
Our fees page has been updated – or more accurately, created. TVA Fees Page. It’s not linked into the rest of the pages properly just yet, but that will be fixed in the next few days. If you have any questions about the fees, make sure you look through some of the frequently asked questions on that page to make sure they haven’t been answered already.
Hopefully you can read all of the web site on your phones as well – if you can’t then please let me know. If it’s because your screen is busted, you can assume that I don’t really want to know that.
There will be more changes happening in the near future as we bring online our new systems for:
- team nominations
- team management
- electronic scoring
- online payments
- match results
- competition standings
During the next 2 weeks you may receive an email from us, inviting you to create an account on our website. Through this account you will be able to sign up and fill out your registration details, nominate teams, and pay your fees, although all of that may not be available straight away. You don’t have to sign up, but we highly recommend that you do.
If you want to receive updates regarding the competition you are playing in, you will need to create an account. We will maintain a general email list that will receive notices of upcoming tournaments, musters and general news items that you won’t need an account to receive. We will be adding an automated unsubscribe link for those that don’t want to receive any news from us (it will be working in the next one, so I’m afraid you will have to receive 1 more email at least).
We do expect to have some problems over the next few weeks as we bring these systems online. We are asking for your patience during this time, and also for your feedback to let us know if something is broken, or not working as you would expect. We will be staggering the invitations to sign up to try to spread out the demands on the web server – so some of you will get to be the
guinea pigs, very important initial testers.
Just a reminder that nominations for our pre-season tournament – Clash of the Titans will be closing on the 18th of February. See our website for more details. The Clash will be on the 24th and 25th of February – if you’re not playing feel free to come along and watch some great volleyball.
If you have any concerns, or questions, please contact me at [email protected]
We look forward to seeing you in just under 2 weeks at musters on the 27th of February.
