Development & Performance



Each year Volleyball New Zealand selects Youth, Junior and Senior Development and Performance teams for Volleyball and Beach Volleyball. Some compete within New Zealand, and some travel further afield to compete in competitions such as Asian Championships and Commonwealth Games.

VNZ organise Athlete Development and Performance training camps in both Volleyball & Beach Volleyball.

Athlete Development & Performance Strategy

This strategy is what guides Volleyball New Zealand's Development and Performance.

The VNZDPS Aims to:

1. Define Athlete Development Pathways (ADPs) that inspire, maximise potential and develop high performance athletes.

2. Identify development and competition opportunities for athletes at each stage of the pathway.

3. Engage all stakeholders in a common understanding of LTAD and the ADPs, in particular athletes, coaches, and parents/whānau.

4. Align with development opportunities for coaches, recognising the critical role of quality coaching to athlete development and performance.

5. Link to the VNZ Strategic Plan 2018-2021 and promote the embedded values – integrity, wellbeing, accessibility and collaboration.
