Guide for Parents

The Role of the Parent

Parents are the real instigators behind Spikezone Volleyball. Their roles as coordinators, coaches, volunteers and enthusiastic spectators are crucial to the success of the program.

Being involved in a Spikezone Volleyball program, gives parents the opportunity to make new friends, learn about Volleyball and spend quality time with their kids.

Volleyball Australia encourages parents to become directly involved in their children’s Spikezone Volleyball program.

You do not need any previous knowledge or experience to assist the participants through either coaching or administering. Your experience as a parent is all you need to be a valuable volunteer.

Spikezone Volleyball is hopefully the start of a lifetime involvement for you and your children in Volleyball throughout Australia and the world.
