Congratulations to our senior boys’ volleyball captain, Ben De Goeij, who recently attended a Volleyball New Zealand Junior Men’s Development Camp in Palmerston North. The camp took place straight after the National Secondary Schools’ Championships. Ben thoroughly enjoyed working and playing alongside a large group of top athletes from all over the country.

Two teams will be selected from this group to represent New Zealand at the Australian Junior Volleyball Championships in Adelaide later this year. They’ll play against Australian state squads and other international teams. We wish Ben all the best for the remainder of the selection process.
