SVNSW has teamed up with the Australian Sports Commission's (ASC) Sporting Schools intiative. This program enables schools to apply for grants and choose certain sports for their students to participate in, either before, during or after school hours. Volleyball Australia one of the 37 nationally endorsed sporting oranisations that have been chosen to help deliever a quality Sporting Schools experience to students across NSW.
Last year in Terms 3 & 4, we ran sessions at fifteen schools from all over city to Coff's Harbour and Bega. Over 1000 kids were intorduced to volleyball and we want to keep it going! We have been so inspired by the enthusiam and positive feedback that we are striving to increase our numbers in 2016, and to have a full roll-out of our Sporting Schools program.
In order to grow, we need great people to coach. We also need a pathway to connect local clubs to local schools. This is an attempt to bridge the gap between primary aged-children and junior players (whether they participate in our Junior Academy, upcoming SpikeZone programs and competitions, Junior SVL squads or State Teams).
If you, or anyone at your club, is interested in exploring some coaching options, this is a great way to get started. We are planning to hold a one-off training session for Sporting Schools in the next few months to give prospective coaches some insight into coaching primary-aged kids. Moreover, coaching in schools is also a great way to gain experience and practical hours for Level 1-2 Coaching certifications. Coaches representing SVNSW in schools are paid between $40-50 per session, depending on experience and qualifications.
