This event may have free female only have a go days, and also we will offer one day events for teams within various grades. This is a cheap social event where the sun is shining and the music is pumping and spot prizes to be given out.

It is a 5 week programme where students will learn the basic skills of volleyball in a fun and engaging atmosphere.

Indoor Competitions & Leagues- MRVA run several leagues for our community such as a PREMIER SECONDARY SCHOOL LEAGUE for our top senior school teams that want a more competitive environment leading up to Nationals in term 1. We also run a SECONDARY SCHOOL OPEN AND SEEDING TOURNAMENTS for these Premier Teams. We also run a KIWI VOLLEY LEAGUE for our year 4-6 students in term 4. 
We have also teamed up with PNVB to help run the MONDAY NIGHT LEAGUES which include Intermediate, Secondary Schools and Adults during the year. 
MRVA & PNVB also run a one day or two day tournaments during the year. If interested please see our calendar or contact us for any upcoming tournaments.

Coaching- MRVA offer some one off coaching sessions to any community group or education provider that would like our services. We can turn up to coach for an hour session, or turn up with the gear to play. Please get in touch.

VNZ have developed a coaching course programme through their online module. MRVA will in time help facilitate coaching workshops. Please contact for any guidance or information on this.

Reps- MRVA send some age representative teams to the National Inter-Provincial Championships where our best athletes represent Manawatu in this tournament. We offer a development programme to all of these athletes and those not seleceted to continue to play and develop. Age groups are U17, U19, U21 and OPEN male and female teams. 

This is just a quick snapshot of what we do. We intend to increase the participation and grow our sport in the region by offereing other initiatives. If you have any ideas, please get in touch.
