Congratulations to Holly Isherwood – Volleyballer of the Year
2023 Westlake Girls Volleyball
Westlake Girls has a very strong Volleyball tradition, and as the second largest sport at school it is very popular among social circles. The Senior Volleyball season takes place in Term 1 while Junior Volleyball is played in Term 4.
The competitive leagues for students in both seasons are the Wednesday night Super League which our top four teams played at various colleges around the North Shore and the Auckland Premier League which occurs on Friday nights across Auckland. For the non-competitive students who are interested in having fun with friends as well as staying active, the Thursday afternoon Harbour League is a great option and is played just around the corner at North Harbour Netball Arena.
Trials for the competitive teams are held in December for the Premier team and in late January for the senior Super League sides. The Senior Social Muster occurs in the first week of February. For the Juniors, the top teams trial in mid-August and begin playing in mid-September while the Junior Social League Muster occurs in mid-September too. Registrations for Senior Volleyball are open in January, just complete the tab to the right. Junior registrations open in July.
