Seaside Draw 2020 – V3
A NEW VERSION (3) OF THE DRAW WAS RELEASED MONDAY 2nd MARCH. Please check the above copy of the draw which has changed since the last update and includes all the playing conditions, stadium locations and court numbers and a breakdown of match and duty times for all divisions. Please ensure that you have read through it carefully, understand clearly where and when you are playing or required for duty and have with you the appropriate uniform (see uniform section below). Where possible it would be great to see our teams supporting each other over the weekend when there a breaks in the schedule. Please ensure that you have advised us if you require accommodation (see below) and have completed your Care Monkey profile prior to the weekend.


Phantoms have organised accommodation for those under 18 or who are on a budget at Brauer College gym. The gym is one of the playing venues for the tournament and less than 10 minutes walk from the main stadium. If you would like to stay here, you MUST advise us by email so we know how many are staying and can organise suitable supervision. Please note, you will need to bring your own bedding (mattress, sleeping bag, pillow, towel etc) if you are staying here.
The total cost per person is $35.00 regardless of how many nights you are staying (it is booked for Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
NO other accommodation will be organised for teams or coaches so anyone wishing to stay in a different standard or location will need to organise this themselves. If any parents would like to stay, they are most welcome.


All players must have black crew (calf length) socks and black shorts (men Phantoms Club shorts and women Phantoms Club shorts or plain black bike shorts). Those with Club playing tops, please bring them with you and if you know someone else in your Association who is not playing but has a set that you can borrow, please bring them as well just in case. As we have a significant number of new players in Women’s Division 3, we will provide all players with an alternative uniform for this weekend but request those who have a Phantoms top to bring it as well.


All players who were registered with Volleyball Victoria in 2019 are still covered until 30th March this year. If you were not registered last year or you wish to register for the 2020 season now, please visit the Volleyball Victoria registration page and follow the prompts to register and make payment. You cannot play any tournaments or State League if you are not registered and this payment is separate from your Club fees.


Phantoms strongly encourage all of our members to communicate with other members of the Club and their Associations that are also travelling to Warrnambool to discuss car pooling and transport arrangements. We are conscious that the year involves significant travel commitments and where possible these should be shared as widely as possible to reduce any stress, fatigue and/or financial pressure.

Phantoms will continue to support all feeder Associations with their events and tournaments. With the exception of the Warrnambool Seaside Tournament that is used as a key preparation plank for VVL, players should be available to play with their home Association or Academy team first. If they are not entering or you are not a required player, then you can play with any Phantoms representative team, provided the Committee has approved the entry and participation of that team. Any post VVL tournaments are not included in the Club fees and therefore entry costs will not be covered by the Club.
Dragon City Bendigo, Oct 31 & Nov 1
Ballarat Skins Tournament and 50th Anniversary Gala event, November 17/18

The Club will run a revised social events program in 2020, reducing the number of functions players will be expected to attend. As well as being listed here, they will also be posted and regularly updated on ourFacebook page. Last year we successfully implemented the use of Eventbrite for ticket pre-purchase to events to help us with catering and space. We will once again ask that all members and guests use this service to help us plan and track the success of our off court initiatives during 2020.
