Volleyball Ireland has launched a new online programme for students to upskill or begin their volleyball education across both coaching and refereeing in a safe and Covid 19 compliant manner
This is a fully interactive online course. Participants can log on remotely to engage, discuss and debate. The first two hours will primarily focus on an introduction to coaching. A full breakdown of topics within the two hours are on the following pages. A one-hour lunch break is provided, before we complete a final two hours observing and analysing videos to discuss the steps and skills needed to become a school / national league referee.
*Previous volleyball knowledge is not required for this course however students should read the pre course study material. This will aid in a better level of understanding and therefore enabling them to partake more throughout the session.

Raise awareness of volleyball in Ireland
Provide a better volleyball understanding to experienced and beginner players, coaches and referees within schools.
How it works
Schools should contact Conor Flood, VI Coach Education Coordinator by email.
Together, schedule a date to suit both tutors and school.
Volleyball Ireland tutors will then schedule a zoom at the agreed time and forward details as well as pre course reading material to the teacher contact. *Pre course reading should arrive a minimum of one week prior to course start date.
Once the full day is completed Volleyball Ireland will award digital certificates and T-shirts to the participants.
