An exciting project was created at this years Cup Finals Weekend when our Youth Panel met for the first time to discuss Youth Volleyball, from a young persons mindset. This panel is now the voice of the Youth Sector who are tasked with ensuring all our programmes which are centered around Children and young people, are focussed towards their needs.
