VUSC Netball Success
Congratulations to all our netball teams who represented our college at the recent Divisional Championships. We have had a vast improvement from previous years, which has been thanks to the hard work of our students and commitment of our staff. In particular Miss White, who has put in many hours training our student teams and developing their skill set. We are very proud of all our students’ efforts, as they all truly lived the College value of ‘Aspire to Achieve’.

Recently the VUSC Senior Girls’ volleyball team travelled to Geelong to participate in the Regional Finals. Playing against strong opposition, including Maribyrnong College, the girls demonstrated very good skills to match it with their more fancied opponents. All games played were highly contested with many long rallies the order of the day. The team managed to win one game and narrowly lost another two in the round robin phase of the competition. The improvement shown by the girls in a short space of time from the Keilor Division to this event was fantastic. Another highlight was the way they played each game with plenty of spirit and enthusiasm irrespective of the score. Well done girls!
Team members: Jenny Cheung Pun, Anastasia Lo Tam, Florence Leasiolagi, Toe Minute, Ina Faifaiga, Lupe Mote, Darlene Foisa, Natalie Seve.
Arsenal Soccer Schools Session
On Monday 23rd May, coaches from Arsenal’s academy in UK came down to take a session with our Soccer Development Program students.
The coaches concentrated on 1v1 drills with technical coaching points given to the students. Our students were engaged and very grateful for the experience of having highly qualified coaches deliver a session.
If any student would like to get involved in our Soccer Development Program VUSC Sport Academy application forms are available from the main office.
Look out for an article on the Arsenal session in an upcoming issue of the Brimbank Leader!
