Club Structure

Volleyball Ireland requires clubs to have a club structure in place, in terms of a committee structure and club governance. The below committee structure is required and the Volleyball Ireland Clubmark program is a great way to ensure club governance is in place.
So a Club Committee the club would need to include,

  • Chairperson
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • *Children’s Officer (If U18s are in the club)
  • *Designated Liaison Person (If U18s are in the club)

*These positions are required to be Garda Vetted through Volleyball Ireland and attend required Sport Ireland Safeguarding Workshops.
