10th July 2021
A good opening day to the Volleyfirst U18 Summer League.
It was a good feeling just traveling to a game again, listening to the banter on the way and the increased tension as we got closer to the hall. The volleyball cobwebs were dusted off and 'game faces' were in abundance.
Current and Haikyuu 'lockdown' inspired players were getting their first taste of junior competition, having only picked up the sport during the lockdown.
Our nervous theory qualified referees developed throughout the day, the growth in confidence was noticeable in the final set of games, rewarding them with their grade 4 qualification.
All of the teams can go away, study the videos and return for the next set of matches on the 24th of July.
It's so good to be back.
