Juniors - Beacon Spark (P5 to S1)

Welcome to the Juniors page of Beacon VC. Any Beacon Juniors that have ideas of what should be included on this page should contact a coach at any of the training sessions.


Since April 2012, Beacon Volleyball Club in partnership with Active Schools run junior sessions at the Beacon Centre, in Bucksburn. The club recognises the importance of juniors in the sustainability of volleyball in Aberdeen and the sessions are now seen as a permanent part of the club.


Junior training sessions are at the Beacon Centre from 7pm to 8pm on Monday nights (the next series of sessions will start on Monday 29 August 2016). The sessions are aimed for Primary 5/6/7 and Secondary 1. Older children can join the adult sessions where appropriate. Each session costs £2.


Beacon VC coaches are happy to visit schools and provide taster sessions. We have successfully run sessions for Bucksburn Academy, Brimmond Primary, Dyce Academy, and Kittybrewster Primary.


All coaches/helpers are volunteers. They all have a shared love of volleyball, are enthusiastic and are all volleyball players. Head Coach Alastair Reid has been a qualified coach since 2008 and has previously worked with children for a number of years when a Leader in the Boys Brigade. A coach/helper checked through the Protecting vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme is there at every session.  Our Child Protection Policy can be found in the Club Documents section of this website.
