We have been through unprecedented and tough times recently, and through it all, the top priority for Scottish Volleyball has always been the well-being and safety of each of our members and the wider volleyball and sports community.
As per Scottish Government guidelines and timeline, we are currently going through Phase 3 of the easing of the lockdown restrictions. With the Scottish Government, sportscotland, and Scottish Volleyball guidance in mind, we are excited to be able to return to some limited outdoor volleyball activity!
Scottish Volleyball want to help YOU, the volleyball community get back on court as quickly and safely as possible. We are therefore delighted to announce an historic Volleyball Support Fund for clubs to the total value of £10,000!
The support fund for Pop up and Play gives your club the opportunity to get your hands on some portable outdoor volleyball equipment to the value of £300 per court.
We believe our clubs can play a crucial role in supporting local communities and individuals out of lockdown with the undeniable social benefits we all get from volleyball and the connections it presents, hence we want to provide clubs with a platform to make this happen.
The ultimate aim of the Volleyball Support Fund is to support the Scottish Volleyball community, and the wider communities in which our clubs are based, to a safe return to volleyball by helping clubs to get their players and coaches back and to bridge the gap between lockdown and full and safe resumption of indoor volleyball. Scottish Volleyball want to ensure our clubs are equipped to do this.
Find out if your club is eligible here and apply before August 7th, 12:00 pm! Make sure not to miss out on this incredible opportunity!
When asked about the Volleyball Support Fund for Clubs, Margaret Ann Fleming, CEO of Scottish Volleyball said:
“I am delighted that at Scottish Volleyball we have been able to pull together this support fund for our clubs. As we move through this unprecedented time, it is essential to come together and help to reignite the club sport landscape. Through this fund and the dedication of our clubs we will enjoy outdoor volleyball in anticipation of indoor starting as soon as the Scottish Government allows for it.”
