There is an exciting opportunity for junior athletes to get some additional coaching on a regional basis. The SVA are running Regional Development Days, which are designed to increase participation in the entry levels of Regional Volleyball and to create a new platform for coaching education.
The identified age groups are for boys and girls between 12- 15 in order to influence on the numbers progressing into representation squads for the Sainsbury’s School Games. Athletes will make most progress if they attend all 3 sessions, but it is also possible to attend 1 or 2 of the sessions, for anyone not available for all 3.
These development days can be an excellent vehicle for coaching education. The identified junior coaches will be working along the side of the coaching manager and the regional development officers reflecting on the following areas
• Developing ball control
• Serve receive
• Attacking skills
The development dates for Edinburgh are:
Saturday 6th February 2016 (10am-3pm)
Saturday 5th March 2016 (10am-3pm)
Saturday 9th April (10am-3pm)
Venue is: Ashburnham Rd, Queensferry, South Queensferry, West Lothian EH30 9JN
Price: £3 per session payable on the day.
