Canberra Heat Volleyball Club is the longest serving club in the Australian Volleyball League. The club fields both Men's and Women's teams in the Australian Volleyball League. Players are selected from the Volleyball ACT affiliated clubs and junior representative programs. Most players were originally identified through the Canberra Heat Volleyball Academy.
Heat Men were national champions in 2002, 2011 and 2015; runners up in 1999, 2002, 2013, 2014 and 2016; and bronze medalists in 2001 and 2010. The Heat Men also secured 10th place at the 2017 Asian Club Championships in Vietnam. Coach Young has contracted a range of new young talent and returning experience into the side in 2017 to replace players that have secured international professional contracts and college scholarships. With these lineup changes, the team has some hard work ahead if they wish to get back into the 'Final Four' in 2017.
The Heat will host AVL from the Australian Institute of Sport.
