2021 Junior Programs

Our Instagram (@tasvolleyballacademy)Our junior programs are designed for athletes in grades 7-12 wishing to develop their physical capability, team work and be "the best they can be!"

The Tasmanian Volleyball Academy (tier 1) and Volleyball Sports School (tier 2) programs target grades 7-12. However, athletes who are in grade 6 are also welcome to apply and we will do our best to accommodate them into the junior groups. Both programs in 2021 will be delivered at Elizabeth College, Elizabeth Street, Hobart.

HIGH PERFORMANCE CAMP

A camp was successfully run in June 2021, attended by 57 of our developing female athletes. It was so well received that we are considering offering a similar camp later in the year for our boys' group.

PATHWAYS

The Tasmanian junior volleyball pathway allows players who aspire to play representative volleyball to develop all aspects of their game. The program aims to develop athletes socially, physically and mentally to be their absolute best. Our training throughout the school year typically culminates in the opportunity for all program participants to represent Tasmania at the Australian Volleyball Schools Cup (largest secondary schools event in Australia) or national junior & youth championships.

*Ex-students have represented Australia in both indoor and beach volleyball, received AIS scholarships, played in the Australian Volleyball League and gained professional international contracts.
