Local Junior Competitions

To establish new national standards and ease the administrative burden on organisers of local junior competitions, we have released a detailed guide packed full of useful resources.

No two volleyball tournaments are the same. Each has its own quirks and unique characteristics. However, the core delivery for most competitions remains the same.

At the heart of the guide sit a number of key principles. For example, success is through praising performance not publishing results or awarding trophies. We also believe that every player should walk away with enthusiasm to play more having enjoyed their time and learned from the experience. 

The pack sets out new national standards around appropriate game formats for each age group as well as net heights, recommended volleyballs as players journey through the junior competitions pathway.

We also aim to save coaches and volunteers time through this new guide, which covers areas such as costing and bookings, pre-event administration, equipment, rules and more.
