Young Event Volunteer Award


The Young Event Volunteer Award is aimed at 14-19 year olds and suitable for students, young club members or anyone wishing to develop their leadership skills through volleyball activity.  The course has been developed with the aim of providing young people with the knowledge and skills to volunteer at a national or international volleyball event or take a lead in organising a volleyball event in their school / college or club.

Course Details

The course is a 6 hour award and does not require participants to have any previous knowledge of volleyball. The award can be delivered by any PE Teacher (or equivalent) or a Volleyball England qualified coach supported by the Tutor Resource Pack.  This easy-to-follow resource plans your sessions for you, is national curriculum friendly and can be delivered in one go or as part of PE lesson time.

Course Delivery Options

There is a one off cost for the Tutor Resource Pack, which can then be used to deliver an unlimited number of Young Leaders courses.

The Resource is availble to purchase on our webshop and includes:
