QAS Volleyball Program

The Volleyball Australia Queensland Academy of Sport Volleyball Program is a partnership between Volleyball Australia (VA), Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS), and Volleyball Queensland (VQ).

The QAS Volleyball Program was established to provide a regular high performance training environment for young athletes that have been identified as having the potential to play volleyball (beach and/or indoor) at the international level for Australia, with the ultimate goal of successful performance at the Olympics.

The QAS Volleyball Program feeds into school, club, and state squad activities. We encourage all of our athletes to participate in these other programs simultaneously with their QAS training to create a daily training regimen.

The Elite and Development squads practice at the Queensland Sport and Athletic Centre and Sandstorm Beach Club, both located in Nathan. These squads are comprised of athletes who have been identified by QAS and national program staff.

Entry into the QAS Volleyball Pathway is normally via the Emerging Talent Program (the single entry point for all QAS Volleyball athletes).

Please find more information about our squads and programs below or contact QAS.etc@volleyball.org.au if you have further questions or enquiries.

Emerging Talent Squad

The Emerging Talent Squad is an initiative of the QAS Volleyball Program and Volleyball Australia that will develop grassroots volleyball players (targeting 15 years and younger) and will teach fundamental movement skills as well as volleyball-specific techniques.

It is the entry program into the QAS Volleyball / Volleyball Australia high-performance pathway. The Emerging Talent program offers ten training centres throughout south-east Queensland (Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba).

Register


Note: Registrations are currently open to trial for most training centres. Our St Peters Lutheran College Indooroopilly and Gold Coast – Benowa SHS centres are accepting trial registrations now for a new training cycle beginning July 2022. Athletes do NOT need to attend these schools to trial for the program. These schools are simply the location for training for that centre.

Emerging Talent Regional Camps

The Emerging Talent program aims to run several regional camps each year to offer high-performance volleyball coaching to regional athletes residing outside of South-East Queensland.

UPCOMING CAMPS:
– Bundaberg/Gladstone (Term 4 2022) – TBC

– North Queensland (Term 4 2022) – TBC

Athletes will benefit from experienced QAS/VA Volleyball coaches in a structured program that will help develop understanding of volleyball concepts, acquisition and development of volleyball skill, and further progress techniques and strategies. We encourage athletes to adopt the growth mindset required for high-performance athletes to succeed at the next level of competition.

Interested athletes do not need to have any previous experience in volleyball, however, athletes must have a willingness and desire to learn and improve on their volleyball skills. Athletes will receive a training shirt with their camp fee.

Athletes from 11-18 years of age are encouraged to register for these regional camps.

Athletes will be offered six 90-minute training sessions over the course of the weekend, with athlete education sessions during some breaks.

In addition, we will be offering coaches in the region the opportunity to complete a nationally recognised Level 2 volleyball coaching accreditation at reduced cost, or the opportunity to upskill coaches or work alongside the coaching team present at the camp (blue cards required).

Registration information and forms will be added when camps are confirmed. Please check back later. For any questions relating to Emerging Talent regional camps, please email Dean.Bielanowski@volleyball.org.au

Regional Scholarships
Operating from South-East Queensland, QAS Volleyball recognises the difficulty in incorporating regional athletes into the weekly training sessions.
