Volleyball

In the last decade Mazenod College has been Australian Honours Indoor Champions 8 times and Victorian State Champions over 20 times in various age groups. We have had 80 players represent Victoria, 5 players represent Australia and we cater and encourage non-elite players to enjoy a team driven sport. Mazenod has never been defeated in any game at the senior level in the elite Associated Catholic Colleges competition in the 11 years since we joined. Over these 11 years we have only lost 2 A grade premierships out of a possible 44 in the year levels 8 – 12. Numerous State titles on the beach have been won and 2 ex- students recently represented Australia on that arena.

We play the entire school year with ACC senior competition in first term. A spirited House competition mixing players from years 8 – 12 takes place on Open Day with new students getting their first taste of volleyball in the Victorian Schools Beach Championships in March. Term 2 has the junior “in school” competition playing every Friday night in terms 2 and 3. Up to 40 year 7 and 8 students play. Our players participate in State League on Saturdays in alliance with Monash University. Third term is the Victorian Schools Championships. Term 4 is ACC competition for year 7 to 10 and the National Schools Competition with our 5 elite teams sleeping at the College whilst competing in the 5 day competition in the first week of December holidays. We play several international teams from New Zealand, China and Japan and occasionally host the National Mens squad to inspire young players with their training.
