MACvolley S456 Aberdeen Festival

The competition saw budding school teams descend on the Granite City in a timely fashion raring to go for the first SVA MACvolley school festival of the 2019/20 school year.

There were many new faces entering the competition and every team held their own and competed throughout the day.

A very strong contingent from Stromness Academy & Kirkwall Grammar School travelled overnight on the ferry from Orkney to attend the festival. The day was a brilliant mix of schools and levels all competing in the MACvolley spirit.  

For many pupils it was also their first experience of being on a referees stand, however, all schools and individuals took to the task with unbelievable enthusiasm and in return the teams and players showed great sportsmanship, it was a real pleasure to witness.

There was a significant amount of spectacular rallies in the girl’s competition as players showed great individual desire to compete. It was Aberdeen Grammar School who retained the trophy after some impressive displays.

Aberdeen Grammar School took the Boys title after a very competitive top pool, with Kemnay pushing all the way in their attempts to foil the Grammar double. The experience that the AGS boys have gained from being part of the Volleyball Aberdeen team in the Junior SVL and competing in the Flying Scots is starting to pay dividends in the boys’ level of play.

A massive thank you to Aberdeen Sports Village and to all the schools and staff who made such a great effort in terms of organising as well as encouraging and developing their pupils in our amazing sport.

We were delighted to award two Spirit of the Tournament awards to pupils who showed fantastic understanding of what it takes to be humble and help out others from different teams throughout the day.

There is still some spaces left in the MACvolley festival programme, please see here for more information on how you can enter and get involved with this year’s exciting programme.
