About NTNUI Volleyball


NTNUI Volleyball is one of the largest groups within NTNUI and consists of about 300 members. The club is run for and by students and all work within the club is done on voluntary basis. NTNUI Volleyball consist of 19 teams from the Elite level to the third division and you are welcome whether you have been playing for years, or are completely new to the sport. We have also a team for those who does not want to play series, but just practice once a week.

 


Even though NTNUI Volleyball is such a large group, the interest for playing volleyball tends to be even greater among our students, so we arrange tryouts at the beginning of every semester (August and January). The rest of the year our teams are full and it is not possible to join us in any other way than trying out for our teams when we arrange tryouts – in August and January.

 

In addition to our teams we also offer “mosjon” every Wednesday 2130-2300 at Idrettsbygget Gløshaugen. This is an open offer for all students with a valid SIT-membership (traning membership/card within Studentsamskipnaden I Trondheim).


Tryouts


Tryouts will this year be arranged in week 33 and 34, from 16th to 27nd of August. Since we have 10 different teams for each gender we need tryouts to get a better look at which level every single player is lying on and get you on the right team for your level. You need to sign up for tryouts, and  you can find the sign up-sheet here: SignUp Tryouts

We offer teams in four different divisions (more information under). If you have never played volleyball activily before, we recommende 3rd division.

We will update this page as soon as we know the exact time and place for tryouts. All we know by now is the dates for tryouts for each division:

1st division: 16th – 18th of August

2nd division: 19th – 23rd of August (Including the weekend)

3rd division: 24th – 27nd of August

(Changes can happen)

If you have played volleyball on high level and wants to play for our elite-teams, you can send a email to volleyball-nestleder@ntnui.no. These tryouts will probably be arranged 16th – 18th of August.

We also offer a team for those who does not want to play matches and want to practice only once a week, called bredde-teams. There are no tryouts for these teams. However, a signup sheet will be posted on our pages on our Facebook page and web page where we go by the first come, first served principle. Questions about the Bredde-team can be directed to volleyball-nestleder@ntnui.no.

Our teams


WOMEN’S TEAMS

D-ELITE:

Our elite-team playes in the highest level in Norwegian volleyball, the Mizunoleague, and playes their matches all around the country. They won first division last season, so this year are they back in the highest level. The team practice four times a week and the season consists of 18 league matches, in addition to the Norwegian cup and the playoff in March.



D1:

Our D1 team plays at level two in Norway, in 1st division, after they won second division last year. They practise three times a week and the season consists of 16 league matches against teams all around the country.

We have three teams in the second division. Each team has three practices a week. The season consists of 16 league matches and three ranking tournaments. All matches and tournaments are played in the Trøndelag-region. There are four tryout-dates for D2. Normally, the level is a bit higher during the first tryouts, as D2A gets to choose players first. So, if the level frightens you, there is no reason that you should not return for the next tryouts. If you show up at multiple tryouts, this will increase your chances of being chosen to a team.

We also have five teams in the third division. Each team has two practices a week. The season consists of 10-16 league matches and three ranking tournaments. All matches and tournaments are played in the Trøndelag-region.
