Club History

Balcatta Volleyball Club was formed in 1995 out of the amalgamation of the now defunct Eureka Volleyball Club, and players from Balcatta Senior High School, which used to be a feeder for junior players. Since joining the Perth Volleyball League (PVL) in 1995, the Balcatta Volleyball Club has become one of the State's strongest clubs and now boasts more than 100 members with teams in all PVL grades.

In 2007 Balcatta aimed to go one better and win the prestigious mens Superleague premiership and further boost its womens division, which had its best season in 2006 since dominating the PVL in the late 1990s. This was the case with the womens team having a competitive season finishing fourth, while the Mens Superleague had their breakthrough win at the final hurdle, taking out the Superleague premiership.

In 2008, Balcatta's aim was to push on and for the first time since 2005 take out the VWA Club Championship award. The bid to do this was aided by the introduction of a strong feeder program for junior womens athletes via our new partners Greenwood Senior High School. The season finished in style with Balcatta winning three of the four contested Mens divisions, including the Superleauge men yet again. In addition, Balcatta teams finished in the finals of the top three womens divisions. Balcatta was crowned Champion Club 2008, just missed out in 2009, and won Champion Club again in 2010 and 2011.
