The first ever Volleyball Victoria Junior Open (VVJO) was held on December 1-4 at both the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC) and Eagle Stadium in Werribee. The VVJO was introduced as a unique concept and was embraced with 148 junior teams from across Victoria and South Australia competing across 21 divisions.
As an ‘open’ event we were very pleased to welcome 5 Victorian associations into the tournament as well as 26 schools! With a relaxed format teams were able to thoroughly enjoy their experience and the positive atmosphere of the tournament.
Volleyball Victoria would like to thank all players for their exemplary behaviour over the tournament and especially to our travelling South Australian teams who added so much to the tournament!
The travelling teams didn’t go home empty handed though as they claimed the following:
- Adelaide High School: 1 Silver
- Eastern Fleurieu: 2 Bronze
- Heathfield High School: 4 Gold, 3 Silver and 4 Bronze
- Loxton High School 3 Gold, 3 Silver and 1 Bronze medal; and
- Renmark High School: 2 silver
The Victorian associations also competed strongly taking home 3 Gold and 1 Bronze from the 5 teams entered!
Once again, congratulations and thank you to all associations, schools, players, coaches, and referees for making the first ever VVJO an incredible success.
