THE president of the Security Forces Volleyball Association, Viliame Waqavuka believes his players need to change their attitudes towards national competition.
He said the side was preparing to participate in their first Vanua Challenge in 16 years later this month.
Waqavuka said his players would need to pull up their socks if they wanted to be competitive against other teams.
"That is why we held a mini tournament for our association today (yesterday)," he said.
The tournament came to an abrupt end at the Immigration department carpark in Suva following heavy rain in the capital city.
"We only managed to play three women's games where Army beat Navy 2-0, Police beat Navy 2-0 and Army beat Police 2-1.
"The tournament is an avenue for us to raise the competitive spirit among ourselves.
"We want to be a competitive team in the Vanua Challenge and not just go there to make up the numbers."
Waqavuka said his side would resume their training for the Vanua Challenge tomorrow.
