The D-Volleyball Commission is a permanent committee of Volleyball Australia set up to establish and promote volleyball for the disabled in Australia and its State Associations. The D-Volleyball Commission’s Strategic Plan aims to provide guidelines for the future of disabled volleyball in Australia through identifying strategic priorities.
Key values and principles of the plan:
- Partnership working
- Continuous improvement
To enable the D-Volleyball Commission to be effective in the work that it does, partnerships with a wide variety of organisations will be developed. Sport performs a major role in shaping the Australian identity. It is our aim to enable the disabled person to participate in sport from social to elite standards, from club level to the Paralympics. It is our belief that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue their goals and aspirations. Through the disciplines of sitting, standing, deaf and beach disabled volleyball, we aim to ensure the benefits it has to offer are realised.
The D-Volleyball Commission consists of the following members:
- Barry Couzner - Chairperson
- John Cheadle – AVF Sport Development Manager
- Heather Brown – Deputy Chair
- Greg Ophel – Deaf Volleyball Representative
- Nic Kaiser – Standing Volleyball Representative
- Jenni Cole – Standing Beach Representative & Classifying
- Wei Ping - Sitting Volleyball Representative
