NEW Online Accreditation Management System:

VA Accreditation Portal

Volleyball Australia are launching a NEW Online Accreditation Management System on January 17th 2022 using the Revolutionise (RevSport) platform.

This will include NEW Level 1 Coach and Referee Courses which will be available from January 17th 2022.

Volleyball Australia will send an email via the Revsport Portal to all coaches and referees in the first week of the new system going live to inform them of the switch to the RevSport System with instructions on how to register, check their accreditation information in their account, as well as all information on how accreditation will be managed from January 17th 2022.

The NEW System will be the only source of accreditation registration, upgrade and renewal from now on and will replace the Volleyball Queensland online forms used to date.

With the NEW System in place, accreditation is the sole responsibility of individuals. To check accreditation status, enroll in courses, submit paperwork for accreditation upgrade or renew accreditation, individuals will need to log in and use the NEW Online Accreditation Management System (RevSport system). The accreditation certificates will be on the portal and can be downloaded by individuals directly.

Please note that Volleyball Queensland does NOT keep records of individuals’ paperwork on file and this is the sole responsibility of the individual.
