wcq 2013  0506RGThe Senior National Men’s Volleyball Team consists of the best volleyball players Australia has to offer. The team has a strong history with success at numerous events and championships. The Men’s Volleyball Development Program is an integral component of all national indoor team programs (senior, youth and junior), preparing and developing athletes for international competition.

The Men's Volleyball Program was originally established in 1990 in Sydney. In 1997 both the men's and women's Senior Programs were relocated to the main campus of the AIS in Canberra. As of January 2014, the Men’s Volleyball Program operates directly as a part of Volleyball Australia even though it remains based at the AIS in Canberra. The AIS is still vital to the National Team Program providing key sport science and sports medicine expertise required to compete at the international level.

Through use of the world-class training centre and resources at the AIS training centre, the ranking of the Men’s Indoor Volleyroo’s (formerly known as Volleyball Team Australia Men’s (VTAM) ) has improved significantly since their initial involvement in the early 90’s. After the teams' success in late 2007, winning the Asian Senior Men's Volleyball Championships and coming 8th at the 2007 FIVB World Cup, the team climbed as high as 11th in the world. The team is currently ranked 14th  in the world and will be looking  to improve that ranking through the 2014 season where they will compete in the World League for the first time since 1999, as well as their involvement in the 2014 World Championships.

The Men’s Volleyroos have now qualified for five consecutive World Championships (1998, ’02, ’06, ’10, ’14) and will be sure to figure prominently in this year’s event. 

The majority of the senior members of the Men’s Volleyroos Program have professional contracts in overseas Volleyball leagues and return to Australia for the international competition season from approximately May through to September each year. The remaining athletes within the Men’s Volleyroos Program, are on Volleyball Australia Men’s Indoor Volleyball Scholarships. 

As far as Olympic representation goes, the Men’s Volleyroos team competed in the 2000 Sydney Olympics as well as  in the 2004 Athens Olympic Games and the 2012 London Olympic Games. Australia narrowly missed out on a Quarter-Final berth in the 2012 London Olympic Games and finished in a respectable 9th place.
