FIVB Beach Volleyball Coaches Course

Scottish Volleyball, in partnership with FIVB, are delighted to announce their first ever International Beach Volleyball Coaches course from 29th March to 12th April.

The course is an opportunity for our current and future coaches to receive the best tuition from a world-renowned coach.

With the establishment of more beach volleyball clubs than we have ever had last season, Scottish Volleyball are supporting the development of this discipline of the game with the guidance and knowledge of our World Governing Body.

The course (itself) will be delivered online, with the support of FIVB Tutor, Vangelis Koutouleas.

Vangelis is a former Greek professional athlete and current coach with a wealth of experience at all levels of volleyball and beach volleyball. He has coached volleyball in the European Championships, the Champions League, the CEV Cup, the Greek professional league, and the Volleyball England Super League. His beach volleyball coaching experience includes a bronze medal in the 2018 Commonwealth Games, a silver medal in the 2017 Junior Commonwealth Games and he has coached several British, Cypriot and Greek teams on the World Tour, the World Championships, the European Championships, the Greek Pro Tour and the UKBT.

Our CEO Margaret Ann Fleming MBE comments on this collaboration:

Scottish Volleyball is delighted to announce our collaboration with FIVB and the highly experienced and talented course tutor, Vangelis Koutouleas. I urge all Scottish and International beach coaches to grasp this opportunity and register your participation. As CEO, I offer Vangelis all of Scottish Volleyball’s support and wish him and participants a fantastic course.

Our Interim Coaching Officer, John Scrimgeour describes the course and the value it has to our Coach Education system here:

This is a fantastic opportunity for coaches to engage with a high-quality tutor to develop and increase their knowledge of beach volleyball teaching, tactics and techniques.
