Junior Training Program

In order to better aid our athletes with their volleyball journey, Easts have recently restructured  our Junior Training Program into more distinct and definable skill progressions. In order to better aid our athletes in their volleyball journey, the programs are split into more distinct and definable skill progressions starting from Foundational all the way to Advanced.

Easts is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of Young People in Volleyball at our Club.  Our commitment is to create an environment where Young People's safety and wellbeing is at the centre of thought, values and actions.  We have committed to the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.  All athletes, parents, supporters and coaches must have read and be familiar with our Codes of Conduct before participating in our Junior Training Program.
