Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What services do Northern Stars (NSVC) provide?

NSVC provides athletes with the opportunity to compete in competitive indoor volleyball in the WA Volleyball League (WAVL) & WA Volleyball Junior League (WAVJL). The WA Volleyball League is open to athletes of all ages and skill levels, with Junior League available to high school students.

When will training be held?

  • Training will be once a week for Junior League, and up to twice a week for WAVL teams.
  • At this stage we cannot be sure on the day of training for any team as we are waiting for venue booking confirmations. You will be notified of training day/s and time/s by the end of trials (normally via email).
    • If the athlete has registered but is unavailable on the training night once they are announced, it is unlikely that we will be able to accommodate them on an individual basis.

Where will training be held?

  • We cannot confirm the venue of trainings at this stage. Prendiville Catholic College is our main training venue, and whilst we know that club teams will be training there we cannot clarify which teams until venue bookings and the number of teams are confirmed. You will be notified of training venue by the end of trials (normally via email).
  • We are currently looking at schools in the northern suburbs for potential hire arrangements. If you have a contact that could help us out, make sure to let us know!

When are games played?

  • Junior League games are played on friday nights in Terms 2 & 3. There are no games during school holidays
  • WAVL games are mostly played on Sundays at various time slots during the morning & afternoon. State League & SL Reserves competitors should expect to play additional Friday night games as well. Games run through school holidays.

Where are games played?

    • Junior League primarily uses The RISE in Maylands, however secondary school gyms are often used as alternative venues.
      • Junior League teams are advised that they may be scheduled to play at Mandurah Baptist College once per season.
    • WAVL primarily uses Warwick Stadium, Loftus Recreation Centre & Cockburn ARC as playing venues, however other venues may be utilised through the season.

How much does it cost?
