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.

Clubs and Associations are critical to the delivery of volleyball and beach volleyball in Australia. As such it is important that they are able to access support and resources to improve their ability to attract players, coaches, officials and administrators and implement improved organisational processes that reflect current best practice in Australian sport.
