National Junior Girls Training Camp - Churchill

Posted by Howard Williams on December 19, 2013 at 1:00 AM


Volleyball Australia Junior Women’s Development Program conducted  the annual ‘Churchill Training Camp’ based in Chruchill, LaTrobe Valley, Victoria from December 13 – 19, 2013.

This camp is the first official activity for the 1998/99 National Youth Girl’s Squad (for athletes born in 1998 or 1999) and involves 54 athletes and 16 coaches from around Australia.

This week long National Training Camp is designed to continue the skill development, understanding of the ‘International game’ and further develop the systems used by our National Teams during international competition. While also exposing many athletes to their first taste of Beach Volleyball training – as a mechanism for developing ‘complete’ volleyballers that can compete in either discipline of our sport.

Athletes attending this camp will be considered for selection to further National Program camps and possible international competitions scheduled in 2014 and beyond.

The camp started with a Beach Volleyball weekend at Inverloch beach 1-hour drive from Churchill. Olympian Lou Bawden helped coach the girls and the ‘Ryan family’ set up the Beach Volleyball venue.

We greatly respect and acknowledge where our athletes commence their Volleyball experience and have therefore introduced a ‘where did you come from’ day at which athletes wear the playing top of their state or club. This initiative contributes to maintaining a culture that is strong in our sport.

Volleyball Australia would like to thank the Phoenix Volleyball Club, Latrobe Valley Volleyball Association, Latrobe City Council, and in particular Danny Anderson for hosting again this year with such hospitality.
