Sketcher to lead Australian team at University Games


Experienced domestic and international coach Liam Sketcher has been given the job of piloting the Australian men’s volleyball team at this year’s World University Games in Chinese Taipei in August.

Sketcher has had a long association with Australian teams, and has also built up a strong record coaching overseas, where he is currently head coach of Danish team Boldklubben Marlenlyst, 2015 Danish Cup champions and finalists in last year’s competition.

He joins the Australian University team as head coach after working as an assistant coach with the senior Australian men’s Volleyroos team, where he has been preparing the team for upcoming World League and Asian World Championship qualifier commitments.

Sketcher has also been head coach of the boys’ program at the Volleyball Denmark Talent Centre since 2015.

He is no stranger to working with University teams, having been the assistant coach of the Australian men’s B team at the 2015 Summer Universiade in Korea.
