This past weekend brought together our volleyball community, with members and clubs participating in our Saturday Scottish Cup and Plate semi-finals. With the competition on the Saturday, Sunday saw club development and coaching workshops, a referee commission and a Board meeting in the morning, then finishing the day with a members Q&A with the Board and staff in the afternoon.
CEO Margaret Ann Fleming MBE said “it has been too long since Scottish Volleyball met clubs and members both in a performance and a social setting. Saturday was a wonderful day with all matches being played in a fabulous environment with real passion and desire on display from all teams participating. Sunday was full of volleyball learning, discussions and questions. It was my pleasure to lead the Board Q&A members session with a presentation on our new 2023-2027 strategic plan “We are Volleyball” being launched in April 2023.”
The Board Chair, Scott Borthwick, with support from other Board members very much appreciate and thank the clubs and members who took the time to attend and to raise questions during our members meeting. All questions and responses were captured, with the staff meeting this week to discuss and action as quickly as possible the discussions raised.
“As CEO I wish to personally thank everyone who was involved in the planning and delivery of this event. Our wonderful volunteers, players, clubs, administrators, coaches, officials, volleyballphotos, parents, supporters and the Inverclyde sport centre staff” said Margaret Ann.
