Volleyball Australia National Roadshow

Posted by devo on September 29, 2009

I found this on the VACT website. A chance for everyone, it appears, to hear exactly what Volleyball Australia has planned for the next 4 years as the roadshow winds its way around the country. Check with your state to find out when your show will take place. And don’t miss your opportunity to have a say.

With a new strategic plan in place and some changes to their High Performance program, Volleyball Australia is embarking on a National Roadshow. It is their intention to travel to each state/territory to meet with the key decision makers and stakeholders in volleyball to highlight what the next four years means for our sport and how they intend to deliver programs and services which in turn will assist them to achieve their overall goals.

One of the biggest challenges for the AVF is to deliver a national strategy which requires support and integration with what is being done in each respective state. They realise that we are a second tier sport in Australia and the funding received is largely to deliver high performance outcomes. However, they can only deliver these outcomes if they have strong underpinning programs and properly developed pathways for athletes, coaches and referees. It still means that the grass roots of our sport is vital if they are to develop a pyramid which sees masses of kids playing volleyball from a young age with appropriate structures providing them the opportunity to move through the pathway to achieve success at their chosen level. The same holds true for coaches and referees who want to be or are part of the system. This requires everyone to work together and have a greater understanding of the system as a whole.

The roadshow will be presented by Adam Sachs, High Performance Manager and Joan Perry, CEO.

VACT has scheduled this National Roadshow event to happen in Canberra  on Monday 19th October. VACT would like to invite all members and stakeholders in the ACT volleyball community to attend this event, if you would like to see what the next four years holds for our sport and have the opportunity to raise any concerns.
