​Kasey Hogan to join the Australian Volleyball Academy in 2021

The Australian Volleyball Academy is excited to announce that Queensland Academy of Sport athlete, Kasey Hogan will be joining its 2021 athlete cohort.

Kasey is a very gifted athlete, and before pursuing volleyball, she was a competitive triathlete which saw her representing her state from a young age.

Kasey started playing Volleyball in Year 9 for her school team in North Queensland’s Proserpine State High School. Since then, Kasey has gone on to represent her state in various volleyball events around the country.

“I am so excited and grateful that I have been given this opportunity to pursue my dream sport” said Kasey on her 2021 AVA signing. “I can't wait to get to the AIS and begin working hard so I can achieve my volleyball goals”

AVA Women’s Head Coach, Marty Collins said ‘I had been told about Kasey from a number of coaches and it was clear to see her potential when I got to watch her play”.  “Kasey is an organised and committed athlete and we really look forward to helping her on her journey”.

Kasey joins fellow Proserpine athlete Sam Flowerday at the AVA.  Having regional athletes join the AVA program in Canberra is critical to the Volleyball pathway.  Many of Volleyball Australia’s most talented players have been from regional parts of Australia.

Alongside her training at the AVA, Kasey will also be studying a Bachelor of Science at the Australian National University (ANU). Kasey also hopes to one day represent Australia in volleyball at the Olympics.

The primary objective of the Australian Volleyball Academy (AVA) is to identify and develop Olympic potential athletes for Volleyball and Beach Volleyball. It is the High-Performance Development Program for volleyball and beach volleyball athletes who aspire to reach the elite level of their sport.
