Volleyball Ireland’s TY Volley Programme is going from strength to strength. Since September we have hit the ground running training up over 380 TY Students as coaches. The course is currently running in schools in the following counties: Cavan, Carlow, Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Limerick, Longford, Mayo Roscommon and Wicklow. We have many more schools lined up for the New Year!
TY Volley is a Transition Year Volleyball programme for girls and boys. The students are trained up as volleyball coaches and deliver a 6-week introduction game to younger students. The TY leaders then organise and run a blitz at the end of the programme for all the students they have coached.
What are the benefits?
- Develop leadership, event management, administration & life skills among Transition Year Students.
- TY Leaders will gain skills, knowledge and experience in coaching which will help them in the future as a coach or with the setting up of their own volleyball/sports club.
- Further promote volleyball in school & in the local community.
- Enhance the profile of the Transition Year Programme in your school in the local community.
- Volleyball Ireland Leader Certificate.
