Coaching & Coach Development Opportunities


Excellent coaching is at the core of the Junior Development Program and the future of volleyball in Australia. A complimentary purpose of the Junior Development Program is to provide a structured coach development program to grow the coaching talent within  Australia. Just like athletes, coaches are provided multiple opportunities to develop their technical and tactical knowledge through participation in national camps and international development opportunities. 


In addition to the opportunities provided through the Junior Development Program, Volleyball  Australia offers coach education and development through the coaching accreditation framework. More information on this can be found on the Volleyball Australia Coach Education and Development Program page.



Junior Development Program Coaches

The Junior Development Program is always on the lookout for new and returning coaches to join us at our Rising Stars National Talent Camps and National Development Camps. By participating in these camps and learning the Australian Volleyball philosophy, systems, and values, you will not only develop as a coach, but you will also contribute to the future of the sport. Performing well at these cams may also lead to other opportunities including international development tours.


For more information on the selection process of Junior Development Program coaches, as well as caching categories and desired traits, please see our Junior Development Program Coach Selection Policy.
