Reserve Men’s Mid-season Captain’s Report

2015 started off with a brand new vibe and feel amongst the Men’s Program. The appointment of Pete Bawhey as the new Head Men’s coach sent a positive message across the playing group. Pre-season was hot with large trainings usually consisting of high quality volleyball even after the summer break. The message from the start of the season was to be aggressive and hungry to win and this can be clearly shown in how we’re going as a team in the 2015 State League Season, sitting third after seven rounds. The team is a very young and fresh new side from last year as a lot of us have been given the opportunity to represent the club at this level after coming from the Division 1 team in 2014. While being mentored and supported by club veterans Brandon Rogowski and James McClay who provide endless amounts of experience to our young and developing team. We set goals from the start of the year which were to be aggressive and want to win and we are showing this from our fast offence, pressure serves and amazing scrambling for the ball. This year’s competition is extremely close which means all teams are needing to be on their toes no matter who the opposition is. I believe that with the group of boys we have and a truly determined and passionate coach, we have what it takes to be playing strong, competitive volleyball all the way through finals and take out this year’s championship. Each and every week as we put the hours in at training we’re making a team of champions into a true championship team!
