Regional Development Centres

The Indoor Regional Development Centres are an exciting new initiative from Volleyball Ireland that provide first class training and international opportunities for junior players in Ireland.

Volleyball Ireland aim to support the progression and passion of our more advanced junior players by providing monthly trainings under the guidance of high level coaches at each centre. Players will be able to avail of external supports provided to the centres such as strength & conditioning coaches or sports related technology to enhance self-development and techniques.

This environment will cater for players between 13 & 17 years of age and will set them on the first stage of the performance pathway towards national team selection, as well as improving their all round sporting skills. This will have benefits for the individual, their local club and school teams.

Our mission is to assist the region’s higher level players in achieving their individual ambitions while developing players capable of competing on the international stage and within the Volleyball Ireland National League system.
