Rossmoyne Senior High School provides an outstanding opportunity for students outside the school boundary to be part of a widely recognised and highly successful Volleyball program. With more than 15 teams enjoying success in the Western Australian and National Schools Cup every year, Rossmoyne’ s program has developed a state and national reputation for excellence.

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 Melbourne, while also enjoying opportunities to gain referee and coaching accreditations. Many Rossmoyne students represent Western Australia at the Australian Junior 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 and have opportunities to compete in the WA Volleyball League.

As the students’ journey through Rossmoyne’s specialist program continues into Year 8, they attend a two day development camp and have the chance to travel to Melbourne to compete at the Australian Volleyball Schools Cup. In senior school, 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.

There is a requirement that students who enter the Volleyball Specialist Program will commit to the program until the end of Year 10 and participate fully in other selected school sports programs, particularly athletics and swimming.  As a condition of continued enrolment at Rossmoyne Senior High School, the school requires students to achieve to a set standard in their specialisation and in other studies for the three years they are in the program.

Students from within the school boundary enrolling at Rossmoyne who wish to be considered for the volleyball program are not required to make an application at this stage.  These students will complete the selection process in Term 1, 2019.
