Volleyball Australia’s High Performance Program is responsible for the development of athletes capable of competing on the international stage as representatives of Australia and supporting those athletes that do gain selection to Australian teams as they take on the world in either Volleyball or Beach Volleyball.
About the Program
The National Junior Program plays a critical role in the overall success of the High Performance Program because of the invaluable player development that occurs at the junior levels. By enabling athletes to compete on the international stage in the youth and junior level they are being taught the skill models used by the National Programs, getting to experience the culture of international volleyball and are being taught the finer aspects of the sport by some of Australia’s best coaches.
The athletes in the program reside across Australia and are scouted and identified by Talent ID coaches who are appointed by the National Junior Program for Volleyball Australia National level events, as well as the ASSC National U16 Championships and most large State-based tournaments.
In addition to the TID coaches, athletes are identified through a vast network of experienced coaches throughout Australia. This network includes State Institute of Sports and Academy of Sports coaches such as SASI and QAS who are closely connected with the program.
