Sainsbury’s School Games Programme

The Sainsbury’s School Games are being held in Manchester from Thursday 3rd September 2015 to Sunday 6th September 2015 in Manchester, England. The School Games are a great experience for any young Scottish Volleyballer but the programme of training, selection and development is just as important as the event itself. 


The programme is open to all individuals who meet the eligibility criteria.

To be selected to play for one of the four Scottish teams you have to participate in the development programme. You do not have to be a high level player to attend the development sessions – you do have to be an enthusiast, you do have to be committed to getting better, you do have to be willing to listen to and work with the coaches, and you do have to be ambitious. If you have any of these qualities then get invovled with the first trial dates.

Please bring along this PARTICIPATION FORM to the sessions and give to the Team Manager.
