Affectionately nicknamed the ‘Goats’, the UniSA Volleyball Club has had an incredibly successful last decade, winning numerous UniSport Nationals and State League titles. The Club trains twice a week, on Wednesday and Friday nights, at the Magill campus and encourages players to participate in the annual SA Challenge as well as UniSport Nationals.
The UniSA Volleyball Club is one of the largest UniSA Sport clubs, having 82 current members. There are a range of abilities that are catered for - from social players to the more competitive players. Players also come from many other clubs to train with the UniSA Volleyball Club.
The Club competes in the Volleyball South Australia (VSA) Division 2 competitions for both men’s and women’s teams provided we have the required participants. We also held a social competition last year but have essentially moved this to Wednesday nights training's where people come and play games over the two hour training session.
Over the last 10 years, there have been many highlights for the UniSA Volleyball Club. Here are some achievements:
Although the club was quite quiet socially over the time when we were closed we still updated our members on the continuously changing times regarding COVID-19. The committee took the time to discuss how we could improve the club when we went back to training, e.g. purchasing new equipment, running different events and improving member numbers during the trying times.
My favourite part of being a UniSA Sport member is meeting a variety of new people with all different backgrounds, yet still having a common interest or passion regarding the sport.
People can sign up for our club very easily! All they need to do is purchase a volleyball membership and start attending training, we sort everything else out from there in regards to what kind of training they desire.
