Cubs Red aims to win the 9th Bula FM Marist Volleyball tournament which starts today at the Vodafone Arena and FMF Gymnasium.

They are the first club from Cunningham to take part in the Marist Volleyball tournament as an association.

Coach Alifereti Naqeleca said they are excited and looking forward to the competition.

“The Cubs Red and our development team Cubs Blue are really hyped up and we have been training and preparing to win this competition,” Naqeleca said.

Not only we want to expose our players to the top level competition, we want to win.

“We have a tough pool and we are facing teams with Fiji and former reps and also players who took part in the Oceania Volleyball Championships.

“So judging from that, we know what to expect and we cannot wait.

“This is the first time that we are taking part in the competition and we have a lot to prove but our training as a team has been really good and I am confident in our boys.”

Naqeleca said they are currently trying to set up an association in Cunningham.

“Normally the requirement to start an association under Fiji Volleyball is we must have eight teams and we have 10,” he said.

“These 10 teams play in a weekly competition and from this competition, we chosen 30 players to represent our Cubs teams.

“We are excited and looking forward to the future of volleyball for us and I hope we get recognised during this tournament.”

Cubs Red is pooled with Matsville Sniper, Eagles and Water Authority while Cubs Blue is pooled with Crossroads, Police 1 and Rebels 1.
