London Sporting Excellence Academy programme designed to allow 16-19 year old Volleyball athletes to continue to develop both their athletic and academic performance.
Concentrating on the professional aspects of sport as well as completing academic requirements goes hand in hand. The London club has worked with juniors for many years, but this project is aimed specifically at students of high school age and this has become a priority for the coming years.
The idea of creation Pro Volley Academy started in 2020. It was IBB Polonia London Volleyball Club (who are not only the reigning English champions, but also the first British team to compete in the CEV Volleyball Champions League - see the video above) and Future Star fundation initiative.
An the begining of 2021 the Academy stayed on the winning streak. Players once again
received the opportunity to try-out for the under 18 England National Team.
In September this unique system in England of education started and recruits went to school. The end of the year was a great success, which was achieved in such a short length of time. Coaches and players chalked up their first competitive match victory, and some athletes had the first England National Team call-ups!
In April 2020 the Pro Volley Academy was initiated by IBB Polonia London and Future Stars foundation
Happy Young Athletes
