Following a successful application for Sport England funding, there has been increased volleyball activity across schools in York and North Yorkshire. Volleyball equipment and tutor packs were provided to 5 schools and in return they have been running lunchtime clubs. The schools came together in competitions in December and the winners will go on to compete in North Yorkshire School Games in June. There has also been leadership training at the schools, so that pupils themselves can support the competitions.
Ana and Matt have established a successful after school club at Archbishop Holgate School on a Wednesday afternoon. We hope to expand this after Easter and establish regular outdoor tournaments between the schools and enter teams in Volleyball England competitions next season.In total 171 junior players have been involved in volleyball activity. We hope they have had lots of fun. Thanks to the players, teachers and coaches at Huntington, Archbishop Holgate, Manor, Joseph Rowntree and Thirsk Schools for making this possible. A special mention for Kev Davies from the York School Sports Partnership and Mike Turner whose application for funding made it all possible.
On Sunday 28th February - York Kings took a valiant 6 players to Sheffield and came back with a 3-1 win - 25-27, 25-19, 19-25 and 19-25 - the 6 being Albert. Matt, Jack, Piotr, Machin and Pepe
The Leap Day saw the arrival of Hull Thunder and the gallant 6 were joined by Derek Cattle at Libero and new player to the Club - Sam Crutchley who added fire power through the middle.
York raced off to an easy first set win, then raised Hull's hopes by losing the next 2 - but they managed to take the 4th and win a close fifth
This cements York Kings second place in Mens Yorkshire League - see http://yorkshire.heyva.org.uk/
