Volleyball is team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score by grounding a ball on the other team’s court under organized rules. As a team sport, everyone in the team needs to be co-operative and disciplined. It requires not only skills, but also perseverance and a high level of fitness.

The volleyball team trains twice a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays for the girls’ team, Tuesdays and Fridays for the boys’ team, with an extra training session when a competition is near. Fitness training sessions take place from 5.30pm to 6.30pm and Court training sessions take place from 7pm to 9.30pm. It is important to maintain a high level of physical fitness and hence the fitness training sessions are crucial. Court training sessions brush up skills that are needed to excel in the sport. We take part in the annual National ‘A’ division volleyball championships which colleges from all over Singapore, participate in. Through this competition we have gained insightful experiences from other teams, which have different playing styles that we can learn and put to use in future.

Volleyball is a sport that not only requires the player to master skills and to attain fitness, but also team bonding. Hence we travel overseas yearly to places such as Malaysia, Taiwan and China, to strengthen our bonds. These overseas trips were memorable in many ways and have definitely made our ties stronger and closer.
