Bermuda’s young female volleyball stars are heading to Florida to take on more than 150 teams in the Holiday Challenge this weekend.

The Volleyball Junior National Team programme is sending four teams ranging in age from under 13 to under 18 to compete at Daytona Beach Ocean Centre with the competition representing the young players’ first overseas tournament of the 2022/23 season.

Plenty of groundwork has been laid in preparation for the trip with the squads training two or three times a week since September and playing either in the Bermuda Volleyball Association’s Winter League or Youth League.

The tournament represents a valuable opportunity for the players to test themselves against some big teams in the United States, with their first games scheduled for Saturday.
