South Hants Juniors
South Hants junior satellite club was very proud to win the Sports Club of the Year for the entire South East of England, across all sports!
To the right are some of our juniors at a tournament and at Horndean Technology College during their weekly training session.
We aim to keep the cost as low as possible to enable as many juniors as possible to attend. The first session is free and after that the cost is just £4 per 'pay as you play' for a two hour session. Once a junior has attended ten sessions they are presented with their official Club shirt to show that they really are volleyball players!
South Hants Juniors
The Junior section of the club has been in existence since November 2013. We have had several changes of venue but now have a long-term home at Horndean Technology College where we have formed a Satellite Club supported by the school and by Energise Me (formerly Sport Hampshire).
We want our juniors to acquire some great volleyball skills, great social skills, get some exercise and have a lot of fun.
The club runs most Saturdays during school term time from 09:00 - 12:00.
We cater for anyone between the ages of 10 and 16 years, welcoming all new players with open arms although they do need to be placed on the waiting list until a space comes free.
Bev Cooper, the club development officer, organises the coaches, the support team, venue, equipment etc. Paul Rodgers, Phil West and Bev Cooper, fully qualified Level 2 coaches, run the sessions, ably supported by volunteers Robenia West, Neal Pattenden and Nick Sampson. We are also lucky enough to have other occasional helpers that come along to support in any way they can.
Our team of adults are qualified first aiders, with current CRB/DBS checks and up to date child protection training. Sherry McBain is the Club Welfare Officer. She attends specific welfare officer training and ensures that the club policy and practise is up to date and available on our website. She also ensures everything we do is in line with current guidance and law in order to protect the well being of our young people.
Finally, the club is registered with the National Governing Body - Volleyball England - which means we are fully insured.
