Nippy’s Austral Spikezone Competitions

Spikezone competitions are mini-volleyball competitions held after school between 4pm – 6pm for Primary School aged children. Modified rules and smaller courts allow players to build the foundation skills and confidence to progress to full volleyball capability. Learning is based around game play rather than training drills and the emphasis is on development through fun competition. Austral currently runs a competition at Westbourne Park Community Centre, Goodwood Rd, Westbourne Park, Fridays 4.00-5.30pm. Team nominations (team of 4) are welcome www.volleyballsa.com.au/Spikezone/austral
