The VU Volleyball Academy was developed to provide opportunities for young volleyball athletes to develop into elite players.
As leaders in sport we are proud to partner with the Victorian Volleyball Academy (VVA). The VVA’S vision is to be the Premier Volleyball Academy in Australia and was created to service the needs of athletes to progress in the sport of volleyball providing every opportunity for these athletes to develop into elite players.
The VVA was established to support indoor and beach athletes who have a will and passion to improve their skill, technique and mental aspect of their volleyball.
VVA incorporates the best coaching directors and coaches as well as allied health professionals.
VVA also provides opportunities for athletes to play in its own franchised Australian Volleyball League (AVL) team the Victoria Vultures (men’s and women’s) and also the ability to be part of a touring Victorian team playing internationally each year.
Elite athletes & sport scholarships
The Victoria Vultures were finalists for the 2014 AVL season. In 2013 and 2014 Victoria University played host to a series of the Australian Volleyball League at the sports stadium at our St Albans Health and Fitness Centre.
Athletes who study at VU have the opportunity to gain the experience of representing the University at inter-university competitions.
Our sport scholarships and elite athlete support program assist outstanding VU athletes to balance study with the demands of elite level sport. The scholarships also assist emerging student athletes in their aim to perform at the elite sporting level.
