The Program

Volleyball is offered to students in year 7 via the sport program. During term 1 many students have the opportunity to participate in a very general program where athletic potential is assessed. During term 2  a group of 32 students are invited to take part in a more intensive training program during year 7 sport. From this, teams are selected for participation in the Victorian Schools Cup in July. Year 8 sport also offers all students the opportunity to play volleyball. Students can try out for the volleyball program again in year 8.

Volleyball is offered to Middle School students as an elective. ITC/V - or intensive training course/volleyball is where students can take part in an extensive course for a semester. This includes experience in playing, coaching and umpiring and students have the opportunity to gain a level 1 district referees qualification.

In the senior years all training takes place as an extra curricular activity either before school or after school.

To enable as many students as possible to play, the school will enter multiple teams in the district sport competition and the Victorian Schools Cup.
