Athlete Expression of Interest for 2019 Beach and Indoor Integrated Program

Volleyball Australia (VA) conducts the Men’s and Women’s Volleyball Centres of Excellence based at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.

The Centres of Excellence are full time development programs for young athletes who wish to become high performance volleyballers. Athletes may have ambitions to become Volleyroos and represent Australia in Olympic Games, World Championships and Asian Championships, and to play professional Volleyball nationally and internationally.

In 2019, the VA AIS COE will transition to deliver a dual discipline program encompassing beach and indoor volleyball. This integrated approach will provide a greater synergy between the two disciplines and will offer more opportunities for athletes to pursue their volleyball pathway. Volleyball Australia and the AIS are finalizing plans to build new indoor beach volleyball facilities on the campus.

Further details can be found in the COE Handbook.

Interested athletes are requested to submit an Expression of Interest via the link below by 28 September 2018.
