Senior Academy Programme

Talented athletes aged 18+

The Volleyball England Senior Academy Programme has been established to extend the England Talent Pathway, allowing talented athletes to continue to develop as Volleyball athletes whilst continuing with their education.

The Senior Academy network is the natural next step along the talent pathway from the established junior academy network and will be hosted by a network of partner Higher Education institutions (Universities) that provide volleyball programmes for talented English athletes.

Senior Academy Prospectus 2017-2018

 

The University partnerships mark a key milestone in Volleyball England’s continuous ambition to develop talented volleyball athletes. This step offers an opportunity to continue in a volleyball programme for those exiting the already established junior academy network.

Each university offers a wide range of academic options and provide a fantastic opportunity for aspiring athletes to continue to develop within a performance environment.

To be involved in a university programme, athletes would need to complete The UCAS application process as normal. The deadline for university applications, to start in the 2018/19 academic year, is the 15th January 2018

The universities and their most appropriate contact details are outlined below.
