8 Simple Rules

January 8th, 2022|

8 Simple Rules – 12th February

Eight Simple Rules, or 8SR, will help the recreational player get greater enjoyment from their game and improve their performance by concentrating on eight basic concepts that help the individual understand the game better. These “rules” focus on principles such as “Movement”, “Communication and Linking”, “Rhythm and Timing”, and “Anticipation”, and teach the athlete how to incorporate these into their game.

The workshop is designed for people aged 18 and above, who are playing competitively at a local or regional level and understand the concepts of positional play and switching.

Photographs of VbDC camp athletes in action

August 23rd, 2021|

One of the leading volleyball photographers in the country, Steve Smith, attended our week-long summer camps in August to shoot hundreds of photos of the athletes. As usual Steve captured some superb images of the athletes in action and maybe one of them is of your child that you would like to have for the family album.

Steve has posted these photos on his website, and Volleyball Development Camps is making a request: if the sport of volleyball has given something to your child, could you give something back to volleyball?  Even though Steve offers the photos free to download, our request is that if you download one could you please make an on-line donation to the Volleyball England Foundation, the fundraising arm of Volleyball England, our sport’s national governing body.

Funds raised by the Volleyball England Foundation are used to assist new volleyball clubs, established clubs which are launching youth programs, or schools that are beginning to offer volleyball as one of their after-school activities. It is all a part of helping the sport of youth volleyball grow in this country and your donations will play a big part in supporting the effort.

Our suggestion is that a donation of £5 per photo is made to the Volleyball England Foundation.

First, go to Steve’s website:  www.sandsphotos.co.uk

  • In the menu on the left is a link marked Portfolio, and when you hover over that you will come to a dropdown menu which includes a link for Sports.
  • Click on that and you will come to a page with a number of photo collections. Click the one marked Volleyball 2021.
  • That will take you to a page where you will find the VbDC camp your child attended; click that and you will find the photos. If you want to download one, there is a download icon in the lower right corner.

Once you have downloaded your photo files, you then go to this hyperlink   DONATE   and follow the on-screen instructions.

Thank you for helping the Volleyball England Foundation raise funds needed to expand the sport in this country.
