Volleyball Excellence

The Volleyball Program at Caloundra State High School offers students unique and exciting experiences. The Volleyball Program runs from Years 7-10 and provides our students with an advanced understanding of the game. Strong focus is placed on the essential skills, rules, rotations and teamwork throughout practical lessons. Theoretical aspects teach our students about enhancing performance and being a coach/leader/mentor, resulting in students conducting coaching clinics and mini volleyball tournaments for our local primary school students using our state-of-the-art facilities. Partnering with Volleyball Queensland, we continue to strive for success playing in State (QLD School's Volleyball Cup) and National level (Australian Schools' Volleyball Cup) events, providing Caloundra State High School students with the opportunity to play volleyball at highly challenged level. Caloundra SHS produces representative players at all levels and attracts many elite international players.
