The Developing Inspiring Volleyball Activators (DIVA) programme educates and empowers female college students to increase volleyball participation at their institution.
DIVAs then lead the creation and delivery of a Social Volley programme.
As well as creating inclusive recreational opportunities for students, the DIVA programme 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.
