TOP teams Raiwai and Suva were on track in the 2014 Joe Vulaca Junior Volleyball Championship at the FMF Gymnasium in Laucala Bay last night.

The men's and women's semi-finals were in progress when this edition went to press last night.

Defending champions Raiwai I, Gold FM Suva, Kinoya Gold and Bula FM Suva made it through to the semi-finals in the men's grade while FBC TV Blue, Vatuwaqa, FBC Suva Grey and Security Forces finished top four in the women's grade.

Fiji Volleyball Association administrator and national team coach Kenneth Lidise was impressed with the competition level in the elimination rounds of the championship.

He said the competition level had improved but there were still rooms for improvement.

Lidise said they were planning to improve the level of the game through a coaching education program which they would be launching this year.

"There is a slight improvement in the level of competition. We saw some teams such as Raiwaqa coming out strong against some top teams," he said.

"There is a lot of talent there in the upcoming teams but having said that, there is a lot of room for improvement in terms of improving the skills, structure and systems of the game."

Results: Quarter-finals Women's - FBC TV Blue 2 USP I 1, FBC TV Black 1 Vatuwaqa 2, Security Forces 2 Raiwai 0, FBC Suva Grey 2 Kinoya 1; Men's - Raiwai I 2 2Day FM Suva 1, NakasI 0 Gold FM Suva 2, Raiwai II 0 Kinoya Gold 2, Security Forces I 0 Bula FM Suva 2
