2018-03-14 06:00

KWADUKUZA Volleyball Association (KDVA) will launch an U17 league commencing on April 13.

The U17 league will cater for boys and girls. Players born in 2001/2002 will qualify to participate in the league. Matches will be played on a league basis in two pools with the top two teams in each pool advancing to the knockout stages of the tournament.

Participation in the tournament is free and trophies will be awarded to the winners and runners-up. At the end of the tournament, a squad of 24 boys and girls will be selected to attend the KDVA U17 Volleyball Academy.

The academy will offer specialised coaching weekly in the hope of grooming players for provincial colours. There will be no fee levied upon players selected to attend the volleyball academy.

KDVA will be offering free coaching to schools interested in participating in the U17 league over the next four weeks, in order to prepare teams for the competition. The first coaching session will take place on March 10, at Stanger High School at 9 am.

All schools interested in participating in the U17 league are requested to attend a meeting (to witness the draws) on March 15 at Stanger Manor Primary School at 1 pm. For further information on the U17 league, contact the KDVA president, Isaac Abraham, at 079 428 0345.

Meanwhile, the U13 primary schools’ volleyball tournament for boys and girls will take place on March 22 at Stanger High School at noon. Trophies will be awarded to the winners and runners-up.

In other volleyball news, KDVA will host a special general meeting on March 8 at The Quartz Conference Centre at 7 pm. Player registration booklets (transfer forms, photographs and R1 000 player registration fees) will be collected at the meeting before the draws for the pre-season knockout tournament is made.

Clubs that fail to submit their booklets and monies on Thursday will not be included in the draws.
