Volleyball England affiliations for 2018-19 extended

Volleyball England registrations for clubs, coaches and referees for the 2018-19 affiliation year have been extended.

Affiliations for the 2018-19 season will now run until August 15th at 23:59. Registered coaches, clubs and referees will retain access to their member benefits, including their £5million worth of public liability insurance for this extended period.

A PDF document of official proof of this extension is available to download here and can be used in combination with your 2018-19 certificate of affiliation and/or 2018-19 registration PDF card.

Affiliations for the 2019-20 season are set to go live on Thursday August 1st and will be processed through VolleyZone – the new online portal for the volleyball community.

While transitioning to the new system, the current membership has been granted an extension to their registrations to help clubs, coaches and referees to ease into the new process of affiliation and give a two-week period in which they can renew, while retaining their current benefits.

“We recognise that this extension gives the volleyball community extra time to become comfortable with using VolleyZone for 2019-20 affiliations and alleviates any concerns regarding insurance cover,” explained Rob Payne, Volleyball England’s core market coordinator. “The two-week overlap ensures that all clubs, coaches and referees will continue to have insurance covering their volleyball activity and gives a clear window for people to affiliate.”

Affiliation for 2019-20 season

Affiliations for the new season will open on Thursday (1st August 2019). The volleyball community will be able to renew coach and official registrations, and affiliate clubs using VolleyZone. 

Volleyball England will be in touch to let you know as affiliations are live on VolleyZone and detailed information will be sent to all current members about how to activate their VolleyZone account and complete the process for affiliating for the 2019-20 season.
