Return to volleyball support for clubs and coaches

Leading sports organisations have published guidance to assist clubs and coaches with safely planning for the return to volleyball.

And with the announcement that indoor, beach and outdoor competitions can return, now is a great time to engage with these resources from UK Coaching, CIMSPA and Sport England to support this period of transition for your club.

Club Matters – Sport England

Getting the nation moving as lockdown restrictions ease is a key driver for Sport England. Their updated Club Matters area on restarting sport and physical activity is packed full of great resources to help your volleyball club plan through the phases of returning to play.

Highlights from the multitude of resources include the Re-Opening Toolkit – brimming with information on how your club can plan a return to delivery – and the Understanding Your People guide.

Share the resources with your club committee and think about how they can help your members enjoy volleyball safely.

Returning to Coaching – UK Coaching

UK Coaching have produced a series thoughtful of infographics to help support you through the phased return of face-to-face coaching. Posing questions to encourage you to think broadly and deeply, ultimately the resources are about supporting you to feel confident in providing great coaching in a safe environment.

Sign up for a free UK Coaching account to access the infographics and consider how the questions can shape your coaching practice.

ReActivate Training – CIMSPA

Targeted at anyone working or volunteering in sport at any level, ReActivate is a free online training platform. Covering subjects such as risk assessment and management, cleaning and hygiene, social distancing and more, the comprehensive certification aims to equip people with the confidence to return to delivering sport.

With access for club volunteers and coaches set to open soon, visit the ReActivate website to find out more about the platform.

Return to Play – Sport England

Positioned as a support section for sport and physical activity providers, the resources available here cover a more extensive range of topics than found on the Club Matters website. If you are employed or self-employed in volleyball, then look at the support for the professional workforce section. Keen to know the legal risks and duties of care when returning to play? There is a resource for that too.

You can go above and beyond in supporting your club and find out about the tools and support to help you now and find out how to prepare and adapt for the future.

Visit the Return to Play page for in depth advice, resources and support.
