The 2017 Volleyball year launched for Freezone on January 13th with the new years training on Sundays kicking off. Everyone was keen to get going after the summer holidays and we had a healthy contingent taking the courts on our first training.
Of course the big event was the following weekend in Melbourne with the Melbourne Spikers Summer Slam kicking off. We had 3 full Freezone teams competing with Free Spirit and a mixed team of SS Whites in B Grade and FZ Pistons in A Grade. It was a wonderful day as always and we had winners all round with Pistons nabbing the Bronze in A Grade and an MVP for Tommy Yap in B Grade. It was also wonderful to have Aniek Nazagatam joining the SS Whites as special guest star now that she is living in Melbourne.
The new initiative for Freezone this year is a new pricing structure for trainings and the beginning of our new “4 Pass Card” that allows you to buy up to 4 trainigs at a time. The club has had it’s first price hike ($2.50 per training) in over 10 years as costs have begun to creep up on us. But the club is in a great position moving into the new Year with 2 trainings on Sundays and Wednesdays in Rockdale (with our super coach Oscar Konakoff).
Our Mardi Gras Mixer event is looking to be a big event and registrations have already begun to flood in. 9 courts and 34 teams this year is the goal and we are looking at selling this event out early in the year. Get your registrations in and remember that Freezone Members get a special discount for the day.
Be sure to get your membership up to date for 2017 as we are going to be introducting lots more benefits for members including reduced training costs, sponsorships,
pre registrations and discounts for tournaments and access to special events throughout the year. All memberships can be signed up for online via the website at http://www.freezonevolleyball.org/membership-2
