MAFFRA volleyball continues to impress on the national stage, with seven players selected to represent Victorian teams in the Australian junior championships, being held in Coomera, Queensland, this week.

Combined with the four coaches involved with the national championships, and it could be claimed Maffra volleyball is punching above its weight on the Victorian volleyball scene.

The week-long championships culminate with the finals on Saturday.

Victorian teams play teams from all other states and the ACT, as well as some teams having to play international teams.

Victorian teams generally are competitive, with the hardest competition usually coming from the host state Queensland and South Australia.

Two of the seven players are thought of highly by their peers as they have been voted in as captains of their respective squads.

Jack McIntosh, co-captain of the under 19 Blue team, is representing Victoria for the second year running in the indoor competition.

Jasmin Underwood, captain of the under 15 Victoria Gold, has had a busy year, also representing Victoria in the national junior beach championships this year.
