Get noticed - National program coaches are coming to a venue near you!
Open invitation for boys and girls aged 12-18 and all local coaches 

The VA Rising Stars Program is a national camp based approach to openly engaging athletes and coaches within the national development pathway. Developed by the Volleyball Australia AIS Centre of Excellence programs (COE) in conjunction with the Junior Development Program (JDP), the program aims to:

  1. Reengage with athletes already within the JDP more regularly and closer to home
  2. Verify promising athletes invited through state and national based talent identification
  3. Identify new athletes invited through a local talent search campaign, who demonstrate athletic or skilful abilities, in schools and clubs close to the camp venue
  4. Enable national, state and local (school & club) coach knowledge sharing


What will I do at a Rising Stars National Camp?

Attendees aged 12-18 are engaged in a weekend of high-level practical and educational sessions lead by coaches from the COE and JDP, and supported by local coaches. With participant groups structured based on ability and experience, training sessions emphasise on developing appropriate technical skills and fundamental game play concepts for a range of skill levels from first timers to talented players.

The Rising Stars Program has been developed specifically by our COE coaches in accordance with current international volleyball trends and national team skill models and represents an unparalleled development opportunity for athletes and coaches to attend in their home state.
