Dragons Academy

Dragons Academy is a high performance and competitive training development program for high school and tertiary age players. It is a structured and holistic year-long program offered to athletes aged 14-22 by invitation only.

Players are generally scouted through our programs within the club such as Senior and Junior PVL and Dragons Junior Programs. Non-Dragons members who are keen to be part of Academy may apply to trial and be assessed if you will meet the selection criteria of the program.

This program will cover volleyball training, coaching development, officiating, strength & conditioning, and knowledge-based sessions such as sports nutrition, sports psychology, team building activities, etc.

Athletes will attend sessions twice a week during non-PVL season (usually terms 1 and 4), and once a week during PVL season (terms 2 and 3). Each session is 1.5 to 2 hours. Note: This program and its fee is separate to PVL and any other Dragons programs.

For all enquiries, including non-Dragons members who would like to trial, please email us HERE.


Volleyball Queensland (VQ) Membership

As an affiliate club with Volleyball Queensland, each player must have a current Volleyball Queensland membership to participate in our programs. Academy requires a minimum membership level of 'Recreational', but the member could also have 'Full' membership. Following registration for the Dragons Academy program, we will direct you to the Volleyball Queensland membership page, so that you can get that sorted.
