Sporting Schools

 


Sporting Schools is a $200 million Australian Government initiative designed to help schools to increase children’s participation in sport, develop skills, and to connect children with community sport for future participation. Sporting Schools will fund sporting activities, including volleyball in more than 5,700 schools, and provide access to a range of trained community coaches.
 

Volleyball Australia is excited to be a part of this sporting journey and to be working closely with Australia’s primary and secondary schools, teachers, coaches, and parents to nurture the next generation’s commitment and love of volleyball now, and into the future. 
 

Students engage with Volleyball Australia's Spikezone program, through a series of entry-level skill and game-related coaching sessions for Volleyball or Beach Volleyball, which can be modified to suit various ages, skill level and group size to ensure players have a fun experience while learning the game.
