Volleyball is your sport of choice this year, because it is non-contact, there are multiple seasons per year, and it can be played indoor or outdoors.

Start with Spikeroos for U13 and U15 skill development and then progress into an U15 or U17 Junior Social Competition, there’s a lifetime of volleyball ahead of you!

For the experienced juniors the Junior Volleyball League, which launched in 2022 is your final destination before progressing into adult social competitions. Join the Sharks, Sunbirds, Panthers or Redbacks for high level weekly competition plus fortnightly training between June–September.

There are pathways into the Hunter Academy of Sport volleyball program as well as the Hunter Volleyball U18 representative program and the NSW Phoenix state junior teams.

It all starts here!


Our participation program is an 8-week intensive covering the mechanics of passing, setting, serving, spiking and blocking plus the decision-making involved on offence and defence! It's the one-stop place to start and finetune your volleyball skill development.
