Volleyball Australia High Performance Program Review
In October 2010, Volleyball Australia (VA) committed to undertaking a comprehensive review of our High Performance Program. The Lonsdale
Group (TLG) has been contracted to undertake this review of our HPP with the aim of recommending the most effective systems and structures required to assist the sport to achieve podium finishes at World Championships and Olympic Games.
The review will be managed by a Steering Committee of “critical friends”. The Steering Committee’s role is to help ask and answer the difficult questions (hence the term ‘critical friends’), as well as being a resource able to value-add and/or validate the information, observations and recommendations. Our Steering Committee includes;
- Joan Perry – Chief Executive Officer, VA
- Adam Sachs – High Performance Manager, VA
- Riad Tayeh – Finance Director and Board Member, VA
- Rob Clement – Director - Organisational Capability Building, ASC
- David Crocker – General Manager – High Performance, Swimming Australia
- Nadine Cohen – Deputy GM - Sports Development Division, ASC
Final Report - May 2011
After lengthy consultation with key stakeholders of Volleyball Australia’s High Performance Program and the wider volleyball community, which in the end included either 1:1 or focus group meetings with 42 individuals plus written submissions from a further 25 individuals or organisations I am pleased to attach herewith the High Performance Review Report titled “A Sustainable Future for Elite Volleyball in Australia 2011”.
