Our Volleyroos Women's team has made a huge leap in the FIVB World Rankings, moving a staggering 27 places from 73 to 46, cracking the top 50.
The jump was due largely in part to the team's participation in the 2014 Women’s World Grand Prix, a first for our athletes and an experience never to be forgotten.
The rankings which were released earlier this week also see the USA claiming the top spot from Brazil, after claiming the Gold Medal at the recent World Championships in Italy.
Volleyball Australia would like to congratulate our Women's Volleyroos team as well at the USA team for their successes.
They captivated the nation in 2000 as they converted self-belief into Olympic gold. Now the duo of Natalie Cook OAM and Kerri Pottharst OAM will share another special moment as each is inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame on Thursday this week. They become the first from their sport to be so honoured.
Volleyball SA played host to Volleyball Australia’s Sport Development Manager as they mapped the current footprint of Volleyball across South Australia and explored a variety of ways where VSA can Embrace, Engage and Expand their participation base.
Dear Volleyball Australia stakeholders,
2014 in review – time to reflect as we prepare for the Australian Volleyball League, the Australian Beach Volleyball Tour and the Australian Schools Cup – a four season sport that offers as much as it demands.
