2018 Australian Junior Volleyball Championships

Volleyball Victoria has returned from the Australian Junior Volleyball Championships (AJVC) hosted for the third and final time in Coomera, Qld having secured third place in the President’s Cup. Victoria won 1 Gold, 2 Silver, and 7 Bronze Medals, finishing with 8 points, equal with South Australia but was relegated to third place after a countback. Queensland won the President’s Cup with 14 points after another successful campaign for the host State.

Victoria was well-represented with 16 teams across 10 divisions – more than any other representative state.  The Championships once again attracted an international team, with Thailand competing in the U19 Girls’ Division.

The Victorian U19 Girls Blue won Gold after advancing to the Gold medal match undefeated against all other States in the round-robin, losing only to Thailand in what was to be a pre-cursor for the guaranteed Gold Medal clash between the two sides. While having guaranteed the Gold Medal on Thursday evening, the Victorian girls did not relax and instead, showed the rest of the competition one of the most exciting games the AJVC has ever seen. 

Volleyball Victoria salutes all athletes, coaches and officials who have represented their state and we thank you to the outgoing members for their time and commitment to our sport over their journey.

We also would like to thank Volleyball Queensland for hosting the AJVC for the last three years and look forward to seeing what next year holds with Volleyball Australia taking back management of the Championships to be held in Canberra. 

We would like to thank the following people:

  • Physiotherapists and Soft Tissue therapists Alana Hassell, Jack Manson, and Ashby Smith for their medical expertise and support 
  • Program Coaches Luke Campbell and Nic Arena
