About Spikezone

Spikezone is a specially modified game of mini-volleyball designed by the AVF (Australian Volleyball Federation) for upper-primary school students (ages 9-13) with the focus of foundational learning. 

The modifications to the program include:

- Smaller courts
- Lowered net height (1.9m)
- A softer and lighter ball
- Less players on court
- Modified rules for ease of playing

Spikezone is a nationally recognised program aimed at providing players aged 9 to 13 the opportunity to begin volleyball at a younger age. As players mature, they have the option of continuing volleyball in Dragons' Junior Training Program. Our goal at Spikezone is to allow children to develop a love for volleyball by teaching them the foundations of volleyball while having fun at the same time. 

For further questions, please feel free to contact the Spikezone Coordinator, Marcus Birthisel.
