The Performance Pathway in SA is an aligned structure from Emerging to Elite athletes. The pathway is designed by Volleyball Australia, South Australian Sports Institute (SASI) and Volleyball South Australia (VSA) to identify, develop and nurture young athletes holistically so they can aspire to compete at national and international levels in beach and indoor volleyball.

Athletes within the Performance Pathway have access to experienced coaches, as well as fantastic facilities and resources, provided by SASI, VSA and Volleyball Australia. The South Australian athlete pathway is designed to provide a unified, visible and and sustainable pathway so athletes can compete for South Australia, and work towards entry to the National Centre of Excellence (Developing Volleyroos), with objectives of Olympic podium success.
