Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The AGM is generally held every year in late August, on a Friday and
at the Surrey Downs Community Centre 6 Zanoni Cres, Surrey Downs, 5126
between 7pm & 9pm.
Each year at our AGM two Executive Committee & all Committee members’
positions will fall vacant. What we need for the AGM is a lot of
our members to attend as witnesses. Basically you come along
listen to us talk for about 20 minutes, they will ask if there are any
nominations for any vacant committee positions and then you get free
food and drinks.
Please don’t think you will be pressured into joining the
committee when you don’t want to.
TTGVA has a Facebook page which is used by TTGVA and its members to
improve communication amongst our members.
It’s a great way for TTGVA to get the word out quickly to the
majority of our members for such things like social events, special
notices and to post some photos and videos of the volleyball fun.
More importantly it’s a great way for members to find players if they
are short players and inturn a great way for a player to find a team.
So go check us out on Facebook if you havent done so!.
NOTE : All competition related details, Game Times & Premiership
Tables will always remain on our website!!
At TTGVA we play using the international volleyball rules as have been approved by
Federation International Volleyball (FIVB) unless otherwise provided for
in our bylaws. We undertake tailoring of these rules to best suit our local environment and to promote fair and reasonable Volleyball guidelines to support our social competitions.
The bylaws can be found on our web site and also in the
The bylaws have recently been updated particularly the wording
of bylaw 3.2.2. The basic idea is in D & C-grade you can either play
with the continuous sub through the service position for the entire set
or the traditional Australian 12 sub rule for the entire set. Teams are
not permitted switch from one to the other during a set.
Sunday Funday Event at Civic Park (Usually Bi-annually)
By-annually around April at Civic Park TTGVA

TTGVA put on lots of free volleyball, free food and
free entertainment for all our past, current and possibly our future

If you would like one of these tops go to the
office and ask the Arena Manager.
The "Polo" (and name tag)!
Keep it fun and don't be a Bully!
TTGVA has become concerned that some people continue to "push the
boundaries" between enjoying a well run social game of volleyball and
wanting to take their frustrations out on our officials, the other teams
or even their own players.
TTGVA has a zero tolerance of such poor
sportsmanship and overall bullying attitudes. Over the next few months,
TTGVA will formulate its own bullying set of rules and
will enforce them to
rid this cancer from within its membership.
In particular, players approach to our referee's continues to
be a major focus and this poor behaviour/attitude is not going to be
tolerated. The appointed TTGVA referee deserves the respect of the
players regardless if you think they had done you a wrong!
BE WARNED !!!
WE WILL BE WATCHING AND WILL NOT HESITATE TO REMOVE THOSE
WHO ABUSE or BULLY ANYONE
Most of you are probably aware that TTGVA is always looking for people
wanting to be a TTGVA referee. We encourage all our refs to undertake training and are
monitored throughout their work to help them ensure the game is officiated
correctly. TTGVA does ask all of its members to show good
sportmanship, good manners and patience to our referees especially to any
of our new (and sometimes quite young) trainees. Afterall, without them,
you should expect that it may be you on the stand next time!!
If you believe a referee is incorrect in their interpretation of a
rule, please do not address it directly with the referee but instead
come and speak to me (Arena Manager) either after the game or send me an
email firstname.lastname@example.org. This
way we can address any problems they may have with out damaging their
