VolleySLIDE - Getting Started - Club Network

Creating a network of clubs is important to raise activity levels, but also to help with promotion and to ultimately create competition, which will then take everything to the next level.

 

The model that was followed in Britain was that the Sitting Volleyball Advisory Group identified specific locations which could become known as a Sitting Volleyball Centre.  The basis of these could be anything from a [standing] Volleyball Club through to a disability group at a limb center.  Anywhere, or anything could become a Sitting Volleyball Centre.  8 were identified in year 1, and it was publically stated that other areas could apply for Sitting Volleyball Centre status.  For a current list of the Sitting Volleyball Centres CLICK HERE.

 

The factors that were considered when appointing Sitting Volleyball Centres was their geographic locations and their subsequent population numbers.  The location of sitting volleyball movers and shakers, any current or potential links to medical institutions (hospitals, rehabilitation centres, physiotherapist providers or limb fitting centres.

 

Each one was then supported by those governing the sport with equipment, training and development advice and a small grant.  The structure that was used is shown below, along with the initial poster that was used:
