Beach is back!
Scottish Volleyball are delighted to announce that we are officially back on the beach!
The Juniors are the protagonists of our safe return back to Beach Volleyball and we could not be more excited than this.
The programme that we offer this year is an incredible chance for everyone that missed volleyball to get back at it. Three beach volleyball clubs, three different locations across Scotland and different dates to be back at ‘Playing it Safe’.
The programme offers in each region the opportunity to participate in two development sessions before participating in the qualifiers and national festivals that will be run the last two weekends of September!
Make sure not to miss the opportunity to sign up as there are limited spaces available and we work on a first come first serve basis!
To sign up you need to register as a member. You can find all of the necessary information here!
Regional Development Sessions
Each host will hold 2 regional development sessions and are open to any boy or girl under the age of 18, 16 or 14. The development sessions will be combined age and gender so that everyone enjoys the session together. The sessions will be delivered by SVA qualified beach volleyball coaches and assisted by experienced national tour competitors connected to the respective host clubs – you will be in great hands. All sessions will follow current Scottish Volleyball COVID 19 guidelines.
Regional Qualifying Festivals
There are 3 regional qualifying festivals hosted by our partner clubs. They will be held in St Andrews (West Sands), Troon (South Beach) and Edinburgh (Portobello). Each festival will run 2v2 competitions in both boys & girls U18, U16 & U14 age groups. Each age group will consist of pools of 3 teams (where possible). With timed matches, each team can expect 4 games. There can be multiple pools of teams per age group. And everyone that plays in the qualifying festivals will also play in the National Festival.
The National Festival
The National Festival – where we bring it all together – will be held in Edinburgh (Portobello) over the weekend of the 26th & 27th of September. There will be gold, silver & bronze groups for each age group. Teams who finished first in their regional qualifying pool will go into the gold group, teams who finished second in their regional qualifying pool will go into the silver group and teams who finished third in their regional qualifying pool will go into the bronze group. From these gold, silver and bronze groups we will create appropriate pools to play out for their final National Festival positions and crown our gold, silver and bronze champions.
All events are subject to change depending on COVID-19 guidance, weather and registrations.
