In December 2013 the Australian Sports Commission released the ‘Australian Winning Edge’ (AWE) high performance strategy. The AWE Strategy sets the following targets for Australia:

  • top five nation at the Olympics and Paralympics;
  • top 15 at the winter Olympics and Paralympics;
  • number one at the Commonwealth Games; and
  • more than twenty world champions per annum.

The investment model that supports the AWE strategy requires National Sporting Organisations (NSO’s) to prioritise resources to athletes who have been identified by their sport as contributing to AWE performance targets.


Volleyball Australia therefore select a Beach Volleyroos squad annually to formally recognise teams who, through domestic and international performances, demonstrate an ability to perform at the required level to contribute to Volleyball Australia's Winning Edge strategy with the ultimate goal of delivering sustained podium performances on the FIVB World Tour and Olympic Games in Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020.


The Junior Beach Volleyroos squad will recognise athletes and teams that have the potential to perform at the required level of the Beach Volleyroos in the future inclusive of the FIVB World Tour and the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020 and the 2024 Olympic Games. These athletes and teams will have a decentralised daily training environment (DTE) managed by VA’s Beach Volleyball Pathways Manager and the DTE coach with national objectives in mind.
