British Pro volleyball player inspires the next generation
Stories, such as Viggars’, show that talented young players with a British passport don’t have to end their volleyball dreams, but can have a high chance of an international career.
Pro Volley Academy never rests on its laurels. Training has been ongoing since September in order to fulfil its aims. The volleyball school worked hard for the first months to show that the promises offered during recruitment came to fruition.
The Academy is seeking young talented players, who in the future are aiming for overseas university volleyball scholarships or professional contracts with the top volleyball leagues in Europe.
The recruits should currently be advanced level players and have passed their GCSE exams or their international equivalent.
According to the likely timeline, students will return to school on the 8th March 2021. Until then all learning is done via the internet.
From Monday to Friday the players and coaches meet up on an online platform to work on two modules. The first section focusses on theoretical ideas and analysis of gameplay. The second section of the work is more physical.
