Senior Schools Cup

As one of the largest schools volleyball events in Queensland, the Senior Schools Cup is held on the Gold Coast during August, attracting teams from right across Queensland. This event is aimed at Years 11 & 12.

Intermediate Schools Cup

Following the introduction of grade 7 to Junior Schools Cup, due to capacity reasons, 2016 saw this event split into two schools cups; Intermediate Schools Cup (grades 9 and 10), and Junior Schools Cup (grades 7 and 8). From 2016 Intermediate Schools Cup will be played in Toowoomba.

 

Junior Schools Cup

Held annually on the Gold Coast, Junior Schools Cup is aimed at junior secondary school students from Years 7 - 10, and is an important date on any volleyball school's calendar. In 2016 this event will be split into two tournaments to meet the growth.

 

Beach Schools Cup

Taking place in March each year, this event is the only annual Beach schools competition in Queensland and determines who is the states best Beach Volleyball school. In recent years we have had teams from right across the South East straight through to Kirwan SHS in North Queensland, participate in the competition.

Since 2014 this tournament has been played at Suttons Beach, Redcliffe.

Primary Schools Cup

The Primary Schools Cup is an outdoor, one-day tournament held at Craigslea State High School and runs between hours similar to a school day. The Spikezone competition format governs the event, playing four-a-side mini-volleyball on smaller courts and lower nets. Due to Year 7 entering all high schools in Queensland in 2015, Year 6 will now be the top age of this tournament and Years 4 & 5 will combine.
