Setting up for success

-

 

From the 11th to the 13th of March 2015, Volleyball Australia conducted a workshop focused on pathways and the FTEM (Fundamentals, Talent, Elite, and Mastery) pathway framework. Volleyball Australia took a giant step forward in collective thinking as the States Executive Directors, National High Performance coaches from beach men's, women's and indoor plus management staff came together to further plan the future of Volleyball within Australia.

Volleyroos heading to Queensland

-

 

Volleyball Queensland is excited to announce the Australian men’s indoor team, the Volleyroos, will kick off their most challenging year ever with two matches against China in Logan in May.

The May 15/16 fixtures will give Queensland volleyball fans a unique chance to see two of the best teams in the world go head-to-head.

Volleyball Australia is delighted to announce that Australia’s mens indoor Volleyroos will play host to the World League in 2014 and for the first time in the history of the World League will host the Finals for Group 2. In Pool C of Group 2,  the Volleyroos will be joined by Finland, Belgium and Canada to compete in the intercontinental home and away rounds. The Volleyroos will play 3 home round matches versus Finland at the AIS Arena  on the 7and 8 June, Belgium at the Adelaide Arena on the 27 and 28 June, and Canada at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre on the 5 and 6 July. The round games will be followed by the final Final four play off which will include Australia as the host nation to be held at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre on the 11 and 12 July. The winner of this Finals series will advance to join the top two from each pool in Group 1 in addition to the hosts Italy.

The Volleyroos stunned the world when they took the number one ranking spot in Asia in 2012 to qualify for the London Olympic Games and narrowly missed a quarter final play off after a stellar performance by the youngest team at the Olympics which included beating world powerhouse Poland. This effort raised the ranking of the Volleyroos from 22 to number 11 in the world. In 2013, Australia played host at the AIS Arena to the Asian World Championship Qualifying tournament which the Volleyroos won to see them advance to the 2014 World Championships to be held in Poland in 2014.

Volleyball Australia President, Craig Carracher said, “We cannot underestimate the significance of Australia competing in and hosting the World League rounds and Finals for the Volleyroos quest to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and for the development and growth of the game in Australia. I would like to  thank the FIVB for their support of Volleyball Australia in once again bringing international matches to our shores and I urge all of Australia to get behind the Volleyroos and cheer them on at their home rounds and in the Final four series”.

Volleyroos Head Coach, the dynamic Jon Uriarte has applauded the efforts of Volleyball Australia to provide the Volleyroos this outstanding opportunity to participate in the World League for the first time since 1999 and to be able to compete against world class competition on home soil. Jon said, “I am thrilled for this opportunity for the team. They are a  young team and continually need to be playing high quality international competitors to give them the best chance of qualifying for Rio 2016 which they will now have!”.

 Volleyball Australia has risen to the challenge of meeting the criteria of podium performances  established by the Australian Institute of Sport under its Winning Edge high performance strategy. Judy Flanagan, Volleyball Australia CEO said, ”With the support of the FIVB,we have set have  an ambitious international hosting agenda to continue to place Australia on the global stage in one of the largest global sports as a force to be reckoned with. There is nothing like playing in front of a large, passionate and vocal home crowd so save the dates in Canberra, Adelaide and Sydney and come on down to  support the Volleyroos in their World League endeavours and their 2016 Rio quest”.

The ticket and corporate box sales program will be announced shortly.
