The Developing Inspiring Volleyball Activator (DIVA) programme educates and empowers female college students to increase volleyball participation at their institution.
It creates inclusive recreational opportunities for students and members of the community. It provides essential professional development for students to gain life and employability skills during their time at University.
This pilot project is funded through Sport Ireland’s Women In Sport Programme, and delivered by Volleyball Ireland.
Each DIVA will be provided with training, equipment and resources to establish Social Volley in their College. This can take the form of traditional Volleyball or Sitting Volleyball which is designed for people with a physical disability and/or mobility issues.
The programme includes continuous learning and development as well as Nationally organised fun competitions for Social volley participants.
