Launching in January 2022 Volleyball England junior competitions have had a face lift. With the new tiered Grand Prix style series of events, quite a lot has changed since the competitions last ran.
The new-look U15, U16 and U18 series have created a level of play that is ideal for new or inexperienced teams while also creating competitive playing opportunities for the country’s most talented junior athletes.
The VBDC-Club are delighted to be among record 290 teams from volleyball clubs and schools have entered Volleyball England’s refreshed junior competitions and look forward to hosting the first round on 16th January
As we start to return to some volleyball normality and competitions start up again both locally and nationally we have got some exciting activities lined up in the coming months.

Autumn series of CampsHelen Dean2021-09-14T10:08:36+00:00
Aimed at Intermediate level players who have some playing experience, RETURN – REFRESH – REVIEW will develop and fine tune basic individual ball-handling skills, then move on to applying those skills in game-like drills and matches, and finish with a review of the next steps each player needs to take to be match-ready for the start of the season. You will get the most out of this camp if you are able to serve and attack consistently.
The concept behind these camps is that volleyball matches are won and lost in a series key battles on the court such as attack versus defence and service against reception. Athletes attending the camps will be armed with the weapons necessary to gain the upper hand in these battles. Our coaches will be covering areas such as: –
Serving to get the opposition out of system.
Passing all types of service
Attacking with range and disguise.
Getting a head start on reading the attackers intentions.
Saturday we will look at the service against reception battle, while on Sunday we will concentrate on the attack versus defence battle.
Both days will follow a similar format starting with a warm-up of course, moving into individual technique and group drills then progressively applying what has been learnt into a series of wash drills and ending the day with a mini tournament.
Sunday will also provide setters with an opportunity to develop their skills in running their teams offence.
To get the most out of the camp we suggest that athletes are able to serve and attack with consistency and are not afraid of taking on the challenges of floor defence.
The camps can be booked individually or as a pair for a discounted price.
