Team managers will be invited to access exclusive AVSC rates through a convenient and customised booking process. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information or go to www.avsc.org.au.
  • Begin to approach teachers/parents/past students to act as team managers or coaches.
  • With 10 months to go get the students together and start fundraising now. With so much preparation time fundraising could easily reduce AVSC costs for teams.
  • Contact your State Volleyball Association about participating in their State Schools’ Cup events.
  • Contact your State Volleyball Association to book students into an approved referee accreditation course. Work with your state association now as one of the biggest issues for schools at the end of the year is making sure they have enough qualified referees.
  • Organise a budget.
  • Secure accommodation and transportation before prices increase and availability becomes limited.
  • Brainstorm ideas for the banner/school parade. Best banner wins a prize!
