Higher Education Volleyball Officer (HEVO) Programme
In January 2010 Volleyball England, as part of their commitment to developing Higher Education volleyball, launched the Higher Education Volleyball Officer (HEVO) programme.
Now in its 7th year the HEVO programme offers students from all universities a voluntary position to work with the National Governing Body and their University. The roles involve leading and co-ordinating the development of recreational volleyball at the host institution in order to encourage new players to come into the sport and to ensure all players have a quality experience at whatever level they participate.
- Over 6000 students participating weekly through the programme
- Upskill a network of HEVOs to become deliverers of recreational volleyball in the higher education setting
- Develop the provision of referees within the higher education environment
- Increase the number of students accessing high quality volleyball competitions (includes HEVOs running a mass participation festival)
ATTRIBUTES OF A HEVO
HEVO Universities will receive:
- A grant for volleyball club to develop recreational sessions and a mass participation festival
- Volleyball England kit to promote and assist the role
- Access and funding support for two referee qualifications
- Support & mentoring from Volleyball England through the HEVO conference and Senior HEVOs
