Flying Scots programme is On Track To Achieve

Flying ScotsThe Scottish Volleyball Association is delighted to announce the launch of the Flying Scots programme. The exciting innovation will present a series of national training days, and competitive events for U17 boys and U16 girls.  The players who are selected for the final stages of the Flying Scots Programme will represent Scotland East and North, and Scotland West and South.

The model for the Flying Scots will be built upon a two year cycle described below;

Year 1

There will be three trial sessions open to all players who meet the age criteria, followed by an initial selection process to identify teams for the Intra-Squad event.

This will be followed by the Intra-Squad tournament.

This will be followed by two squad training days before the final selection is made.

The final element of the year one programme will be a Foreign Exchange trip lasting three to five days, and featuring competitive matches against suitable European teams. 

 

Year 2

There will be three trial sessions open to all players who meet the age criteria, followed by an initial selection process to identify teams for the Intra-Squad event.

This will be followed by the Intra-Squad tournament.

This will be followed by two squad training days before the final selection is made.

The final element of the year two programme will be an International Invitational Tournament hosted in Scotland.

The Flying Scots Programme will launch, this summer, in the Year 2 cycle. The dates for the programme are; 

- Open trial dates - Saturdays 9th, 23rd of June, and Saturday 4th August 2018
