Newington Volleyball Program

Newington offers Volleyball as a winter sport across Terms 2 and 3, with an AAGPS competition for U16 and Open age-group (Firsts through to Thirds) teams.

Volleyball is a competitive and demanding sport that provides an athletic and non-contact alternative in the winter months.

Training and Competition

  • Played on indoor courts, the AAGPS competition involves weekly home and away fixtures
  • The U16 competition is the first opportunity that Newington boys get to play competitive Volleyball

U16s develops the skills that the boys can take into the Open competition in the years to come. They get a sense of Volleyball as a structured game, on-court roles and tactics and build specialist passing and hitting skills. Over the past two years, our U16 teams have maintained positive win-loss ratios and have found great enjoyment in the game.

The College is also proud to have produced players who have progressed to play at senior representative (CIS) levels and have gone on to play for State and National League teams in their years beyond school. We are fortunate to maintain the links with many of these Old Boys, with some returning as accredited coaches to guide the next generations of Newington Volleyball players.

Continued Growth

The Newington Volleyball program continued to grow as an official AAGPS sport in 2016 with the addition of an Open 4ths team and two U15 teams.

2016 Season

As a result of our boys’ effort and determination, the 2nds, 16B, 15A, and 15B finished second in the competition against more traditional Volleyball schools such as Sydney Grammar School and Sydney Boys High School.

A big congratulations to the Captain of Volleyball, Lachlan Garner, who led the program and played a major part in its success this season.
