|The Devizes Squad
|| Our Club is based on fun, enjoyment and team spirit. We have around 25 junior members, from the ages of 8 up to the age of 16 and we have about 15 senior members from 16 and above.
The Club meets every week on a Thursday night for training at Lavington school. We have a club school link with the school where we work hard to encourage juniors to take up volleyball. Our After school club begins at 15:30 till 17:00 and is open to all juniors, not just Lavington School pupils. Between 19.00 and 20.00 we have our casual players, 3rd team adults and advance juniors training. From 20:00 through to 22:00 we have our 1st and 2nd team training.
Both the junior and senior squads take part in tournaments and leagues both in Wiltshire and outside of Wiltshire.
Our Men's 1st team take part in the South-West League and our Ladies team take part in the Wiltshire Ladies League. We have mixed teams in the Wiltshire league as well. There really is a team for all abilities.
The club is coached by a fully qualified Volleyball England Level II coach who is part of the regional talent development scheme. In the past three years the club has produced six England Juniors, both male and females and most of our ladies have gone on to play National League either 1st Division of the country or for Wiltshire in the 3rd Division.
We are actively encouraging people to come along to our training sessions, as we would like to involve more people in a great team sport, which is unfortunately not given enough coverage.
We are a friendly group of people who would love to see you at our club. For 16's and over it costs £3.00 pound per session, but the first session is free. To get in touch, send an e-mail to Matt who coaches both the juniors and senior squad.
