Men's Indoor – HEAD COACH OF VOLLEYROOS

-

Following a historical season for the Volleyroos including the promotion into Group One of the FIVB World League, Volleyball Australia is searching for a Men’s head coach to take them all the way to Olympic success.

The 2015 season will present both challenges and rewards for an experienced coach. It includes the World League (Group One), involving matches at home and away from May to July against Brazil, Italy and Serbia. The Asian Championships will follow the World League, which is an integral part of the Olympic qualification.
Finally, Australia may take part in the World Cup in Japan, aiming at direct Olympic qualification.

The Volleyroos are ranked within the top 15 nations in the world following their performances at the 2014 FIVB World League, Group 2, and the 2014 World Championships.
The successful candidate will be offered a contract through until the conclusion of the 2016 Olympic campaign.





Women's Indoor - Barnard reappointed Volleyroos coach

-

The Board of Volleyball Australia has announced following its latest meeting the re-appointment of Mark Barnard as coach of the senior women's indoor team, the Volleyroos, for what's set to be a blockbuster 2015.

Barnard took over as head coach of the Volleyroos in early 2014, and oversaw the team's first ever appearance in the FIVB Grand Prix.

Although the Volleyroos did not win a match at the Grand Prix, the team lifted its International ranking from 100 to 46th in the World.

The Oceania Zone board and representatives have completed an historic 3 day development planning workshop in Canberra Australia today.

In a first for the zone, AVC supported Oceania to convene a development meeting led by President Craig Carracher in Canberra with a detailed plan now being drafted for the new board to approve at it's next meeting.

"I was delighted to work in such a cooperative and supportive way with 10 of my colleagues from 7 national federations across all 3 sub zones of Oceania. We also enjoyed the good wishes and documented feedback and preparation of many other national federations to produce a clear set of 14 strategic principles to guide our development plan to 2016", said Craig Carracher, President Oceania Volleyball.

"The support of AVC and FIVB to convene this meeting and to guide our deliberations has produced the most dramatic change in our sport in this region. I was delighted so many Oceania colleagues could join this weekend to experience Australia's sold out World League win over Finland. Australia's success is success for Oceania and Asian volleyball and it was particularly rewarding we could host this meeting at the time of hosting such a major event in our region."

The meeting also benefited from reports on the progress of the A$250,000 investment made by Volleyball Australia and the Australian Government through the Pacific Volleyball Partnership in Fiji and Vanuatu. "We are very proud of the impact this investment through volleyball is having on behavioural change especially for women in sport across these two island nations.  We encourage our partners in the delivery if this program to continue to support this important work achieving immediate and direct benefits to so many people in regional and rural villages and communities", said Craig Carracher.

FIBA Oceania CEO, David Crocker, also presented at the meeting to outline current and alternative strategies undertaken by other Olympic sports across the Zone.

The Oceania Board will meet to consider the 14 strategic principles and the detailed development plan over the coming weeks.
