Junior School Championship 2023

VLY’s 1st & 2nd year 6v6 national competition returns for 2023. Once again the trend of growth across all school competitions continues with this junior age category. This year we have an incredible 44% increase in team entries at this level.


The Junior Competition hosts 149 teams and expects to oversee a whooping 442 games over the next 12 weeks.


Junior 6v6 takes on a slightly different format than our older age group competitions. As most teams are new in schools, we begin with a seeding round to determine divisional places going forward. After Round 1 we eagerly await the crowning of our new champions across 6 divisions of competitions for 2023. 


Hoping to make an instant impact this year is new school St Francis College from Cork. Teacher Emer Murphy “At St Francis College Rochestown we are delighted with the interest and participation in volleyball, our senior teams bring great energy and fun to all matches and training sessions. We are excited to get the junior teams up and going now”
