Volleyball AustraliaVolleyball Australia is pleased to partner with Sport Australia to deliver this $200 million Australian Government initiative to get more children playing more sport.

As the national sporting organisation (NSO) for Volleyball, we offer schools and coaches quality programs that encourage children to participate in this great sport.
THE VOLLEYBALL AUSTRALIA PRODUCTS
Spikezone is a modified version of volleyball designed especially for primary school students aged between eight and 12 years. The Spikezone School Volley program is further modified to cater for secondary students aged between 12 and 14 years. Spikezone can be adapted to suit various group sizes, skill levels and ages to ensure players have a fun experience while learning the game.
The key strengths of volleyball in Australia are:
- Inclusive of all cultures, abilities and genders
- An accessible sport - any surface (oval, grass, hall, beach), anywhere, any time
- Can be played by both male and female
- Non-contact sport
- Minimal equipment
- The court size and net height can be adjusted to accommodate players skill level
TEACHERS AND COACHES ARE OUR ASSETSVolleyball Australia values the role of teachers not just in the classroom but in the school yard as well. Their enthusiasm for improving children’s lives is often understated. Society places its trust and confidence in teachers who as educators, have one of the most important roles for our children, outside of parents and carers.
Coaches are also a wonderful influence on children throughout their formative years. Coaches are the people who deliver the skills with fun and enjoyment.
The information below is a guide to how schools, coaches and sporting organisations can deliver the Volleyball program within Sporting Schools.
