Junior Development Program



The HVC Junior Development Program promotes the development of the fundamental skills of volleyball to upper primary and secondary school aged students in a fun and social setting.  It is designed to give students the opportunities to participate in weekly games and various tournaments run throughout the year.  It is the foundation program set up to support and encourage participation in the sport with our club, in the hopes that students will want to pursue to such areas as the SVL and State Teams.

It is the foundation program set up to support and encourage participation in the sport with our club, in the hope that players will want to pursue a pathway into the SVL, state teams and possibly beyond.

Sessions are conducted within each school term (school holiday breaks are observed) at a casual cost of $15 per session or an upfront term cost (calculated each term on number of sessions less one as a discount for upfront payment).

There are match play opportunities throughout the year via the one day junior tournaments (Sundays) and we enter teams into a Friday night junior competition at Maribyrnong.

Many of our junior development athletes (both male and female) have gone on to represent the club in the Victorian Volleyball League, the state at the national junior and state championships, as well as representing Australia in international competitions.
