The Australia Men's national volleyball team, also known as Volleyball Team Australia Men (VTAM) or the Volleyroos, is the national volleyball team of the volleyball-playing nation of Australia. As of August 2015, they are ranked 13th in the world. They are a member of the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC). Their best result came in 2007, when they won the Asian Men's Volleyball Championship.

The Volleyroos made a single appearance at the FIVB World League in 1999, but the financial ramifications of the event would not seen them compete again in that competition for many years [1]. In 2014, Australia once again joined the World League. Their final ranking was 5th out of 28 teams. In 2015, they participated again and ranked 8th out of 32 teams. Picking up wins against Italy and silver medalist Serbia, they have shown they are approaching the ability to match some of the world’s best teams.
