Volleyball Australia is seeking coaches to be involved in the 2016 Beach Volleyball Junior World Championships campaign. FIVB hosts Junior World Championships every two years from 2016 onwards in the following age groups (U17, U19 and U21)

Coaches are invited to register their interest in being involved in the 2 year cycle of the program’s Junior World Championships campaign. All coaching positions are volunteer based. Coaches may be asked to contribute financially to the costs of their participation but this will be kept to a minimum.

Australia’s top-ranked female beach volleyball team has underlined its class with a comprehensive straight-sets win in the opening round of the Australian Grand Slam tour at Manly Beach.

Louise Bawden and Taliqua Clancy were far too strong for South Australia’s Becchara Palmer and Zina Stone, 2-0 (21-11, 21-15).


New Zealand’s domination over Australia on the sporting field has continued on the sands of Manly Beach, with victory in the men’s final of the Oceania Beach Volleyball Championships.

Mike Watson and Sam O’Dea proved much too strong for Australia’s Damien Schumann and Josh Court in tricky windy conditions at the Sydney beach.


There’s only one speed hump left standing in the way of an all-Australian final in Sunday’s Oceania Women’s Beach Volleyball Championships at Manly Beach – but it’s a big one.

Vanuatu’s Miller Pata and Linline Matauata deserve to start favourites on the final day, even though they came into the weekend as the tournament third seeds.

Volleyball Australia's AGM held over the weekend signaled an end to an era with the retirement from the Volleyball Australia board of long time member and former president Chris Schacht.

Chris joined the VA Board in 1996, becoming president not long after that, a position he held for 18 years and saw many exciting events and opportunities for volleyball within Australia.  We here at Volleyball Australia cannot thank him enough for the leadership and direction he has given our sport over the last 18 years.
