Men’s AVL – 2009 Series

Posted by devo on June 25, 2009

AVLlogoSusan Diver-Tuck, Competitions and Events Manager at Volleyball Australia has circulated information on Men’s AVL. The 2009 Series format will remain the same as last year: a Grand Prix Format.

Susan notes that after consultation with all teams throughout the 2008 Series, it was clear to Volleyball Australia that the current Grand Prix format is not widely popular for the Men’s competition and that teams would like to hold discussions and have the ability to provide input into the future AVL format. This has not been possible for the 2009 series due to time constraints, but the process is underway for 2010. Formats are currently being costed out for teams in regards to travel costs, hosting commitments, etc, and once this information is completed it will be forwarded to Member States, National Team Coaches and staff, VA staff, as well as AVL teams/clubs for feedback and input.
