Beach Volleyball Coaching Opportunities with the VA Centre of Excellence


Volleyball Australia (VA) in conjunction with the South Australian Sports Institute conducts the national Beach Volleyball Centre of Excellence based at the National Training Centre in Adelaide.

The Centre of Excellence is for players who have left school, and are committed to a full-time beach volleyball program, with the aim of becoming regular participants in World Tour and Asian Tour events, and of becoming senior national team (Volleyroo) players.

The Centre of Excellence has two Head Coaches, Mick Nelson and Tom Kroeger, who are also Assistant Coaches with the Senior Beach Volleyball Program

VA is offering the following opportunities for beach volleyball coaches who are interested in developing into full-time beach volleyball coaching, to work with the Centre of Excellence coaches and athletes in 2018.

There are 2 different opportunities:

  1. A six month appointment as Development Coach in the Centre of Excellence from 1 January to 30 June 2018. This will require re-location to Adelaide, and availability to work with the program several hours each day, including travelling to competitions where required, whilst learning from the Centre of Excellence Head Coaches, as well as the Senior National Team coaches. Some other part time work or study would be able to be pursued by the Development Coach alongside the coaching responsibilities.

    A small stipend would be available for this position, but the coach would need to find his or her own accommodation.

  2. Short term visiting Development Coach positions at the Centre of Excellence for periods of one to two weeks at agreed times during the January to June 2018 period, to work with and learn from the Centre of Excellence and Senior National Team coaches, including assisting in running sessions with the Centre of Excellence athletes, and other duties.

    Some limited support for travel and accommodation would be available.

Coaches interested in either of these opportunities should send an Expression of Interest, together with their beach volleyball CV to the High Performance Director, john.boultbee@avf.org.au by 30 November 2017. If you need any further information please contact John Boultbee or Victor Anfiloff, VA Beach Volleyball Technical Director at victor.anfiloff@avf.org.au
