The S’PORT is going up!

The S’PORT is PROMOTED 🎉🎉 to Division 1 in National Volleyball League.

Two consecutive promotions since our Men’s formation.

Didn’t need the Play Off Final in the end, as Volleyball England confirmed:

“Southampton Volleyball Club have withdrawn their team from the Super League for next season. As we now require both of the teams in the Super League vs Division 1 playoff to take a place in the Super League, this opens up an additional spot in Division 1. As a result we intend to keep/promote all three teams from the Division 1 vs Division 2 playoffs, as we had originally needed two from three to be promoted.”

Academicals

This is the next stage in our development of juniors. Stockport Volleyball Club is delighted to announce it will run and resource an Academy for 2020. Training to commence Q4 2019. This decision relects the good crop of young people who we want to assist and for them to reach their full potential and develop within the sport. We welcome any new boys u16s for next Year, initially to join: Rio, Arian, Matt, Billy, Kaya, Will and Oli.

This cohort will seek to join the National Cup u16s next Season.  All the competitions form part of the Junior Competition Pathway.

In addition the Club will fund all these participants to attend the training of North of England Volleyball under the auspices of our NVL player, David Roberts (a former Volleyball England, Juniors Coach).

Exciting times ahead investing in our youngsters.

These Girls Can

Could not be more proud in our inaugural Stockport Volleyball Club Women’s Team fixture against Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU).

The first time we had ever played together, Head Coach, Seb, assembled a combination of seasoned volleyballers and newcomers. Our Chair, Adrian watched the first two sets, both narrow defeats at 25-19.

A commendable performance – and pride in that MMU said more than willing to play us again as we prepare for a first season in local league. — at Manchester Met’s Platt Lane Sports Complex.
