Help to grow the game as a university volleyball ambassador
12th July 2021
Applications to join our next cohort of Higher Education Volleyball Officers (HEVO) have now opened.
The programme is one of the biggest of its kind in England and sees student ambassadors from universities around the country organise recreational volleyball sessions at their university.
For the past 11 years, the HEVO programme has played an important role in Volleyball England’s commitment to developing Higher Education volleyball.
Who can become a HEVO?
Any students with a love for volleyball and an ambition to develop the sport can apply. Excellent communication skills and a ‘can-do’ attitude are key to becoming a successful HEVO. Applicants will have strong organisational skills and be self-motivated. Becoming a HEVO will look excellent on your CV and help to put you on the path to success in your future career.
What do HEVOs do?
The key focus is to lead and coordinate inclusive volleyball recreational opportunities at their university. To encourage new participants into the sport, ensuring a quality experience for all players, regardless of their ability. At the start of every academic year, students attend the action-packed HEVO Conference at the National Volleyball Centre in Kettering, where they will partake in a number of practical and theoretical workshops to learn how to deliver effective sessions for recreational volleyball players. This year's event takes place on the 23rd and 24th of September. As part of the role, HEVOs work alongside Volleyball England to record and report session attendance each term.
