Volleyball Victoria extends congratulations to Harrison McBean and Caitlin Tipping on their respective awards at the 2018 Blue and White Jacket Dinner Awards held Saturday November 10 at the San Remo Ballroom.


The Blue & White Jacket Award is the most prestigious individual award presented in the State Junior program. 


The award recognises the extraordinary achievements of one male and one female athlete for their profound service to the State Team program.

The athletes eligible for this award must demonstrate adherence to the following criteria:

Close to full junior involvement, from bottom to top age

Demonstrate diligence and commitment to the program

Be supportive and encouraging of teammates and broader squad athletes

Be a role model that all times displays exemplary behaviour and ethics 


The female award winner also receives the Bill Glasson Medal. This is the seventh year that this medal is being awarded and it is done so in memory of the late Bill Glasson for his great contribution to the female Victorian indoor state teams.


Congratulations to all of the award winners and all of athletes and coaches recognised in this year's State Team program.
