Specialist Volleyball students set high standards as future leaders in the sport and recreation community. Students represent the school in competitions in both Perth and the Gold Coast, while also enjoying opportunities to gain referee and coaching accreditations. Many Rossmoyne students represent Western Australia at the Australian Junior Volleyball Championships and Australian Junior Beach Volleyball Championships each year. Rossmoyne’s program is highly regarded by the Western Australian and Australian Institutes of Sport. With the introduction of state-of-the-art beach volleyball facilities the program now offers an integrated indoor and beach volleyball pathway.
As Year 7 students, at Rossmoyne Senior High School volleyballers are a part of a rich community of sports tradition as they develop their skills for higher level participation. Concurrently with their physical education program, they receive special tuition in volleyball before school, have opportunities to compete in the WA Volleyball League and attend a two-day development camp.
As the students’ journey through Rossmoyne’s specialist program continues into Year 8, they attend dedicated volleyball classes and have the chance to travel to the Gold Coast to compete at the Australian Volleyball Schools Cup. In Year 11 and Year 12, they will enjoy opportunities to study sports science through the Physical Education Course of Study in Year 11 and 12, where their volleyball experiences can contribute towards their Curriculum Council Western Australian Certificate of Education.
