High School Training
Our High School Training (HST) program is a training development program designed for high school-aged boys and girls to learn and develop the skills of volleyball. This program is great for players currently training in schools and looking for extra trainings, or are simply new to the sport and looking for a club to learn the sport. We have multiple levels of the program catering for Beginners through to those who are seeking more advanced skill development.
This program is part of Dragons overall Junior Program an provides a pathway into Junior Premier Volleyball League, Dragons Academy (by invitation only) and state and national programs for the more competitive players, or alternatively into General Training and Phoenix League teams.
When and where is training?
Training runs during school terms in terms 1 to 4, giving you the flexibility to sign up on a term-by-term basis. Registration is accepted any time except the last two weeks of term (where capacity allows). We also offer a summer holiday program (December-January). We do not offer programs in other school holidays. We have a few training venues, with our most popular being The Gap SHS. Training times are usually 6-7.30pm or 7.30-9pm.
Can my child try out?
All newcomers to the junior program are welcome to register to try out, during which time we will assess the player's skill level and allocate players to the suitable level/group--Beginners, Development, Intermediate, Advanced or Elite. If you will continue for the rest of the term after trying out, the first session is payable as part of the term fee. You will tbe able to choose to train once or twice a week. If you decide not to continue after ttrying out, you will not be charged for the trial session. Note: All newcomers must register to try out. Walk-ins are not accepted.
Volleyball Queensland (VQ) Membership
Each player must have a current Volleyball Queensland (VQ) membership to participate in Dragons Junior Programs. High school aged players require 'Recreational' or 'Full' membership. Benefits of this include some playing insurance, that can help if the player is injured whilst playing.
If the player is not already registered with Volleyball Queensland for this year (expires 31st March), Dragons will invoice you for the cost and arrange this for you.
