NATIONAL JUNIOR PROGRAM
About the Program
The National Junior Program plays a critical role in the overall success of the High Performance Program because of the invaluable player development that occurs at the junior levels. By enabling athletes to compete on the international stage in the youth and junior level they are being taught the skill models used by the National Programs, getting to experience the culture of international volleyball and are being taught the finer aspects of the sport by some of Australia's best coaches.
In any given year, the National Junior Program manages four groups of athletes through camps and international competition. The current groups are:
(The number denotes the year in which the oldest players in that squad are born. 90 means players were born on or after January 1, 1990).
The athletes in the program reside from across Australia and are scouted and identified by Talent ID coaches who are appointed by the National Junior Program for AVF National events, ASSC National U16 and most large State-based tournaments.
In addition to the TID coaches, athletes are identified through a vast network of experienced coaches throughout Australia. This network includes State Institute of Sports and Academy of Sports coaches such as SASI, QAS and GMVA who are closely connected with the program.
