Return of the Fast Track Programme


The Fast Track Programme was introduced to Scottish Volleyball in season 2006/07.  It is designed to ‘fast track’ the best of our young talent through to the National Team Programmes, and beyond.  The Fast Track Programme is also designed to help improve the performance standards of the National Leagues, and the Junior National Leagues by focussing on the key role of the setter within the game.

We are delighted to have the return of Thomas Dowens as the presenter of the fast tracks, He has a proven record of producing high quality players and sustaining their interest such as they may fulfill their potential.

If you are working as a setter or outside hitter in the JNL, or the National League, then you are eligible to participate in these clinics, and they are free to both players and Coaching Staff. There will be two courts available for male and female players.

To sign up for the Fast Track you need to be nominated by your coach.  The nominations should be sent through to  at the SVA Office or by phone 0131 556 4633 and we will get back to you with details, and hopefully the offer of a place .The hope is that your coach will attend the sessions with you, to help make the practices work smoothly, to learn about the role of the linkage between the setter and the outside hitter and to engage in the processes of improvement with you.
