Membership fees

Your membership fee includes your VNZ registration, Monday night Competition Team Entry Fee and Wednesday night training costs. The club also provides playing uniforms and volleyballs. We look forward to seeing you at Pioneer Stadium on these evenings.

During the winter season (May – September) the Pioneer Volleyball Club participates in the Monday night competition. To play as a member for a Pioneer Volleyball Team, you need to be a financial member of the club, and have completed the online registration.

For all players, fees are due to be paid by Friday 12th May 2022.

 Membership Type Fees (2023)
PVL, Southern Zone and Nationals Player$500
Monday Night Only Player$200*
Development Player$200*

*If players in these teams play in additional tournaments during the season, the costs for these will be in addition to these membership fees.

You can pay fees by direct credit into our Westpac account – 031594 0013072 00 – Pioneer Volleyball Club Inc. Please ensure you include your FULL name in the details.

Unless the team is a Non Training team, all members playing in the Monday night competition are required to train, generally on Wednesday nights between 7:15 – 9:15 pm at Pioneer Stadium for Senior A & B teams (other teams TBA), unless permission exempting a member from this has been approved by the committee.

Subject to nomination by the committee, the Pioneer Volleyball Club will seek to support two Men’s and two Women’s Representative teams in the following ways:

  • Pay part entry fees to all qualifying tournaments (if tournaments are out of town travel and accommodation will not be covered, if tournaments are in Christchurch, an additional part payment may be required in lieu of travel and accommodation costs)
  • Pay entry fees and accommodation to Nationals (excluding travel).
