A groundbreaking new era of indoor volleyball development in Australia has begun with the establishment of the Luke Perry Volleyball Academy (LPVA) under the Reds Volleyball Association.
Australian Volleyroos’ Captain Luke Perry will lead the new Academy in partnership with Reds to create new opportunities for aspiring volleyballers in Western Australia and interstate. Athletes will have the opportunity to participate in specialist trainings, camps and volleyball education courses in a high quality program environment led by Luke and a variety of support coaches each year.
Perry has made over 250 appearances for the national team since he first made his debut in 2012. He has played professionally in Europe since 2014 and stands as one of Australia’s most decorated indoor volleyball athletes. The current libero for Polish outfit Aluron CMC Warta Zawiercie, Perry has been a strong supporter of Reds since the foundation of the Reds Volleyball Club in 2018 and is excited to formalise the partnership with Reds through the Academy.
“It’s great to see the growth and success of Reds over the years. I see something unique and ambitious about Reds and I think it’s still just the start of bigger things to come. It’s really exciting for volleyball in WA,” Perry said.
“I’m extremely happy and excited for what’s to come for the Academy. It will be an exciting time and if I can inspire a single athlete it will be a success,” Perry added.
Luke and Volleyroo teammate Max Staples have partnered in recent years to deliver a variety of clinics and courses through the Reds Volleyball Association for WA athletes and coaches including the highly popular Youth Volleyball Clinic earlier in June and the High Performance Coach Course in 2021. Perry is looking forward to building on the successes of these programs through the new Academy.
Reds Volleyball Association President Anthony Meo thanked Luke for his incredible support of Reds and is looking forward to seeing the LPVA flourish.
“Luke is an inspiring individual in the Australian volleyball community whose vision to offer athletes with the best possible development opportunities fully aligns with ours at Reds,” Meo said.
“Our Board and entire Reds community are incredibly thankful for Luke’s service to the Association over years. We are incredibly excited to establish the Academy with Luke and are confident this can provide volleyballers from right around the country with sensational opportunities to become better athletes on and off the court.” Meo said.
The inaugural LPVA programs will commence next week at Aquinas College. Read more about the LPVA and upcoming programs via the program page below. Please direct any enquiries to Max Wason via firstname.lastname@example.org.
