General Manager’s Update

30 September

•    Australian Junior Volleyball Championships
•    Update to Codes of Behaviour
•    Board update Strategic Plan

Australian Junior Volleyball Championships

The 2017 Australian Junior Volleyball Championships concluded on Saturday, 30 September, with Victoria enjoying modest success, claiming five silver and five bronze medals from the 16 teams entered.  Queensland was the standout securing 10 of 11 gold medals available from their entries with a consolation silver included; this is a remarkable achievement from the host State and sets a standard for all States to pursue.

Following an extensive review of the 2016 AJVC, changes are being introduced to State Team programs that will impact the performance of both disciplines and we look forward to working with our community to provide a valuable and valued experience to all participants.

We congratulate all athletes, coaches, and team personnel for their efforts and due reward and thank the countless individuals who made sacrifices in the lead up and throughout the event to ensure our Teams were able to concentrate on their primary objective to perform at their best and do the community proud.

Update to Codes of Behaviour

Volleyball Victoria has recently updated the existing codes of behaviour for players, coaches, officials, and guardians and introduced a generic ‘Child Safe’ code of behaviour in response to the Victorian Government’s new mandatory standards.

The updated and new codes seek to ensure volleyball is not only compliant, but proactive in seeking to provide a safe environment for all children who participate in the sport.  The codes are complemented by a Child Safe Policy and further risk management strategies.

The codes of behaviour can be found on the Volleyball Victoria website with other relevant corporate documents.  If you have any questions regarding the new codes or the implication for your club or association, don’t hesitate to contact Victoria Ellis, Member Services Coordinator at the Office, 03 9794 0009 or email
