AVSC underway

Posted by devo on December 7, 2009

Eldo receives 25 years award

The Australian Volleyball Schools’ Cup got underway yesterday with the opening ceremony at MSAC. Competition began today. Draw /results (updated)

At the opening ceremony, Volleyball Australia’s Chris Schacht made some interesting comments on the Crawford report, insisting that although volleyball was an Olympic sport, it was also a participation sport. And that the stadium full of athletes at the opening ceremony was proof of this. He promised to send a photo of the ceremony to Crawford and to the minister of sport!

A special mention too for devo’s volleyball regular David “Eldo” Eldridge, as the Heathfield coach became the first person to achieve a 25 years of participation award. Well done Eldo!

AVSC Volunteers

Posted by devo on October 21, 2009

The 2009 Australian Volleyball Schools’ Cup is just 6 weeks away, and Volleyball Australia would love to have you volunteer at this years’ event. The kids love the whole AVSC trip, and the teachers love bringing them (most of the time I’m sure!) – without volunteers Volleyball Australia wouldn’t be able to hold it, they wouldn’t be able to attend such an awesome event, and the event wouldn’t be the biggest school sports tournament in the southern hemisphere.

If you would like to come to Melbourne for a fun week, please head to www.avf.org.au/avsc and you will find a link to the form – so just fill it out and hit ‘Submit by Email’. If you have any friends or family that would like to volunteer for 2009, please let them know about the link. As you know, we need at least 40 volunteers, so ask around!

Bronwyn Evans has again offered up her services as the Volunteer Coordinator, so you know you will be well looked after!

Any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact  Nikita Hellmuth – Competitions & Events Intern – Australian Volleyball Federation – Email: avsc@avf.org.au

How much does AVSC Cost?

Posted by Hugh Nguyen on October 15, 2009

It’s now 54 days to my favourite week of the year: The Australian Volleyball Schools’ Cup! Our own volleyball jamboree! Many of you out there are either participating as players or coaches, or have done so in the past 26 years.

With teams coming from Perth to Paralowie, the question I’d like answered is: How much is each school  paying for its trip per player? Let us know who you’re going with and how much you’re paying.

And what is included in your trip fees? Some schools use public transport, while others have their own shuttle bus service going to both venues. Some stay in backpacker hostels, while others stay in vacated boarding colleges. Some have meals supplied, some have to buy their own. Some teams do a lot of fund raising activities; some teams do none.

So far we have:

  • Rossmoyne (WA) – $1,350
  • Brighton (SA) – $900
  • Gladstone (QLD) – $900
  • St. Mary’s College (SA) – $800
  • Hallett Cove (SA) – $800
  • Heathfield (SA) – $790
  • Loxton (SA) – $690
  • Mercedes College (SA) – $600
  • Willunga High School (SA) – $600 (honours – $615)
  • Girton (VIC Country) – $575
  • Wonthaggi (VIC Country) – $270
  • Eltham (VIC Metro) – $260
  • Monbulk (VIC Metro) – $165
  • McKinnon (Vic Metro) – $80

AVSC poll

Posted by devo on December 17, 2008

Schachty raises an interesting question in his comments on the Australian Volleyball Schools’ Cup.

Can the tournament progress beyond where it is, does it need to, or has it reached its potential?

Hit the new poll, and post a comment here to explain your vote. Let us know if you a player, a coach, a volunteer or a parent.

And after 18 years of non-attendance you must make the effort to get here Schachty – you won’t recognise it.

UPDATE: Most of you are saying that the AVSC only needs minor fixes. What are they?

UPDATE 2: Some are saying it’s had its day. What model should we go to?

Monbulk and Billanook move into the +500 club. Upwey slips out. Those voting for “an outsider” in our last poll were wrong. Brighton and Heathfield continue their dominance, but Monbulk and Billanook are on the rise and next year …

Some more Australian Volleyball Schools’ Cup

Posted by devo on December 14, 2008

Mrs Devo receives her 15 years award at AVSC

Mrs Devo receives her 15 years award at AVSC

Well I got a different perspective on the Schools’ Cup this year. I wasn’t coaching, I wasn’t driving a bus. I wasn’t getting up at 6:00am. I wasn’t going to bed after midnight. I didn’t have to worry about feeding starving teenagers. I wasn’t responsible for a team of volleyballers.

Instead, I spent some time in the evenings as one of the volunteers, and made some new friends. I still managed to catch up with most (but not all) of my old volleyball friends. My shifts were only 3 hours long, a bludge compared to the regular volunteers who do 7 hours plus. I can recommend volunteering to everyone. A few anxious parents and coaches with minor gripes are easy to deal with.

I had plenty of time to watch volleyball, do some Christmas shopping and spend time with my new daughter-in-law.

I managed to sit on my hands and keep my mouth shut (well most of the time) while I watched Mrs Devo coaching her year 7′s.

Okay, I did miss coaching a bit. But I figured that I did better than ex-Brighton coach John Tiver. A reliable source informs me that he was computer bound for the week – sitting in Adelaide – hitting the refresh button; waiting for Brighton results to come up on the AVSC web site.

John, I can recommend volunteering next year.
