Volleyball Western Australia kick starts the National Participation pilot program in grand style!
Last weekend saw the culmination of an exciting and successful year for VWA and its members and was the perfect back drop to launch the Volleyball Australia Pilot participation program which aims to build the capacity of local clubs and support them to expand the participation base of Volleyball.
VWA ran a two day Clubs Conference which saw the WA Department of Sport and Recreation Conference room packed with eager and supportive members. VA’s Participation Manager, Nic Kaiser presented an overview of Volleyball Australia’s National Participation Plan and fielded questions about how VA will work with VWA to support local Clubs to expand their participation base.
VWA also held an extremely successful Awards night on the Saturday with in excess of 160 participants attending the gala event at the Rendezvous Grand Hotel on Scarborough Beach.
Volleyball Australia is excited to be working with VWA to support them to grow their participation base across age groups, abilities and environments.
VA will be meeting with Volleyball ACT, NSW and South Australia over the next week. Stay tuned!
Australia outgunned by determined USA
Australia has been beaten 3-nil by the United States in a highly charged match at the World Volleyball Championships in Poland.
The Americans came into the match needing to keep a clean sheet to keep alive their hopes of progressing to the next round, and played accordingly.
No repeat of French fairytale for Volleyroos
Australia has failed to repeat its heroics of earlier this year, losing to France in four sets at the Volleyball World Championships in Poland.
There was to be no repeat of Australia’s stunning five-set victory over France in Sydney in July, a win that took Australia to the final of the World League and sent France home.
