KDVA to host junior volleyball tournament

2016-02-03 06:00

KWADUKUZA Volleyball Association (KDVA) will host a junior tournament on Saturday, 6 February at the association courts commencing at 9am.

The tournament is open to secondary school boys (born 1997/1998) and girls (1998/1999). At the end of the tournament KDVA will announce a squad to participate in the KwaZulu-Natal Volleyball Youth Championship scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 27 in Durban.

In preparation for the tournament, KDVA will host a coaching clinic for secondary school boys and girls on Friday, 5 February. Players may attend any one of the two sessions on Friday. The first session will commence at 1.30pm and finish at 3pm with the second session scheduled to start at 3pm and finish at 5pm.

President of KDVA, Isaac Abraham urged the youth in the Ilembe District to take advantage of the free coaching sessions. Players from Maphumulo and Mandeni have already indicated their willingness to attend Friday’s coaching clinic.

Abraham said: “Apart from receiving coaching, players will have an opportunity to represent Ilembe in the provincial tournament in the hope of representing KwaZulu- Natal at the South African Youth Championship in Bloemfontein in July.”

Meanwhile, reigning KDVA Premier League champions, Grove End were grinning from ear to ear after the draws were made for the Trophies Engravers-sponsored Top 8 KO Cup which is scheduled to get under way on 11 February.

Grove End have been drawn against First Division League outfit, Darnall United in the opening round before locking horns with the winner of the Warriors Sport and Frendz clash in the semis. Having beaten both teams convincing in the 2015 season, they (Grove End) are sure to start favourites for honours in the Top 8 K.O. Cup.

Volleyball enthusiasts can look forward to a mouth-watering quarter-final clash between arch-rivals KSST and Randsons on 11 February. There has been a frenzy in the transfer market during the festive period. KSST have made two new signings, which they are holding close to their chest and will unveil on 11 February.

The question is: “Will Sandhir “Tinboy” Jugmohan quit Randsons to join KSST at the start of the 2016 season?

Teams participating in the Top 8 KO Cup must hand in their player registration booklets together with the 2016 affiliation fee of R500 and player registration fee of R80 per player on Wednesday, 10 February at The Quartz Conference Centre at 7pm.

The KDVA annual general meeting will take place on Thursday, 25 February at The Quartz Conference Centre. New clubs seeking affiliation are requested to contact Abraham on 079 4280 345.
