Competition for all juniors with Tier 2

29th October 2021

Competition for all juniors with Tier 2

Our junior competitions are back, in a new series of tiered Grand Prix-style events. The 2nd Tier allows for a level of competition that is ideal for new or inexperienced teams.  

If you’ve never taken part in our junior competitions, now is the perfect time to get involved. All teams can enter Tier 2, no matter what their level of competitive experience or skill is. This includes schools, colleges and junior volleyball teams. 

Tier 2 is focused on development and participation. A unique set of adapted rules have been put in place to enhance the player experience in this Tier. For example, the U15s competitions are played 4v4 on badminton courts and the U16s and U18s 6v6 on a short court. 

This is an exciting opportunity for juniors of all abilities to get involved in a national competition. They’ll have fun whilst advancing their skills and growing into more experienced players.  

 

What you need to know 

Tier 2 competitions will be hosted locally by teams. The more teams that enter, the more localised the competition becomes. 

For the U16s and U18s, the cost to enter is £40 per Grand Prix, with a one-off player registration fee of £5pp. All processed via VolleyZone. The entry fee includes a hosting fee within the price, with that going directly to the host. 

For the U15s, the first Grand Prix is £25 to enter, with a one-off player registration fee of £5pp. The 2nd and 3rd Grand Prix costs £40 per team per Grand Prix to enter. 

Entry fees include a hosting fee within the price, with that going directly to the host.
