Development Opportunities

The Junior Development Program aims to provide multiple opportunities for athletes to be involved in Volleyball and Beach Volleyball opportunities through national camps, domestic competitions, international development tours, and international representations at peak Junor Championship events.


Athletes who have been identified as potential Junior Development Program National Age-Group Development Squad members through state and national based talent identification may be invited to attend national camps to further develop their tactical and technical volleyball skills. An invitation will also be extended to those athletes who are currently in National Age-Group Development Squads. Invitations are distributed in consultations with the state volleyball governing bodies.


For more information about development opportunities for athletes in each age-group, please see our Junior Development Program Calendar.


Rising Stars National Talent Camps

In addition to the Junior Development Program, the Volleyball Australia Rising Stars National Talent Camps are designed to openly engage athletes and coaches within the national development pathways. Developed in conjunction with the Australian Volleyball Academy, the Rising Stars Program aims to:

  1. Reengage with athletes already within the Junior Development Program more regularly and closer to home.
  2. Verify promising athletes invited through state and national based talent identification.
  3. Identify new athletes invited through a local talent search campaign, who demonstrate athletic or skillful abilities, in school and clubs to the camp venue.
  4. Enable national, state, and local (school and club) coach knowledge sharing.
