The National Women’s Program commenced the ‘90’s ranked 6th in the Asian zone and maintained this ranking throughout the decade, due in part, to the strong nature of women’s volleyball in Asia with teams like China (1st), Japan (7th) and Korea (8th) all ranked in the top 8 of the world at the time. 

2014GP HynesPassing

With the support of the Australian Institute of Sport (from 1993 to 2004) the Australian Senior Women's Volleyball Team entered the new century with an appearance in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, where they placed 9th, beating Kenya in the process and taking a set off Croatia.  With this result, the Program achieved its highest ever world ranking of 14th following the games. 

A new look Women’s Team qualified for a second World Championships in September 2001, and achieved a 6th place finish at the 2001 Asian Championships in the same year. In 2002 Australia competed in the 2002 World Championships held in Germany eventually finishing 21st at the event.

Australia was unsuccessful in their qualification attempts for the 2006 World Championships and, after a period of rebuilding following the move to a camps-based Program, through the revitalised Women’s AVL competition format sees the team keen to build on their 9th placing at the 2013 Asian Championships. Their historic inclusion in the 2014 Women’s Grand Prix (Division 3) will surely see the team improve as they additional match experience against quality teams ranked between 13 and 25 in the world.
