SVA Coach Registration Scheme

Season 2010 / 11

Sign Up Time !

Gavin WattThe development of coaches and the coaching process is at the very centre of the SVA’s activities.  Last year there were numerous examples of the great work being done by our coaches, and the effect they are having on both players and performance standards.  It’s time to start the process of registering for the new season.

The Coach Registration Scheme applies to everyone and anyone who will coach in the National League and Cup competitions, and all Junior National League fixtures.  To participate in these events in a coaching capacity you must Register with the SVA.

The registration process is a simple one.  If you are registering for the first time you have to contact the SVA Office, submit the registration form, a photograph, and the appropriate fee.  With the introduction of the SVA’s new membership scheme, the fee for being involved in Scottish Volleyball activities, in any capacity, is £5.00, then you add the ‘module’ costs.  So, for the Coach Registration Scheme the fee is £5.00 for SVA membership, then £10.00 for coach registration.  Of course, you need only pay the membership fee once.  On receiving this documentation the SVA Office will then issue your registration pack. 

If you were part of the Coach Registration Scheme last year you only need to submit the registration fee as all previous information which was submitted is held in the SVA database. 

The registration pack contains more information on the overview of the scheme, on the Scholarships which are available to registered coaches to help attend coach education courses and CPD events.  It also includes the Continuous Professional Development programme which has been structured by the SVA for the coming season.

The registration process can be undertaken now and must be completed by the time of the first Schelde Sports National League fixture in which you will participate. 

To contact the SVA Office you can call Kirsteen on 0131 556 4633, or email
