Volleyball England are beginning to recruit volunteers for the 2012-2013 season of events. We need volunteer to take a number of roles ranging from Court Manager to Courtside Assistant to VIP Liaison. Many roles require no volleyball knowledge or event experience. We are also looking for more ambitious volunteers who would like to take on leadership roles.
The first set of events we need volunteers for are the Sitting Grand Prix series. Sitting Volleyball is another version of volleyball that has been adapted to allow anyone to participate including those with a disability and featured in the London 2012 Paralympics. I know many of you volunteered or spectated at this! And in fact many Paralympians will be competing in the Sitting Grand Prix series! The Grand Prix is a series of single day events across the country with the top teams going through to the National Finals. You can volunteer for one or more of the series. The dates and locations are as follows:
- Saturday 20th October 2012 – National Volleyball Centre, Kettering
- Sunday 25th November 2012 – Ashcombe Volleyball Centre, Dorking
- Sunday 9th December 2012 – National Volleyball Centre, Kettering
- Sunday 27th January 2013 – National Volleyball Centre, Kettering
- Sunday 17th February 2013 – National Volleyball Centre, Kettering
- Saturday 23rd March 2013 (Semi Final) – National Volleyball Centre, Kettering
All volunteers will receive lunch and potentially a t-shirt. Unfortunately due to budget constraints we are unable to cover travel expenses so these opportunities are most suited to local volunteers.
We would also need volunteers for the National Cup Finals at the National Volleyball Centre in Kettering from Friday 19th to Sunday 21th April and the Super 8 Play Offs from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th April. Recruitment for this will begin a bit nearer the time but please keep the dates free!
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the attached application form. If you have volunteered at Volleyball England events already, then you only need to complete the first page and the questions on availability and t-shirt size.
For the first Sitting Grand Prix the deadline is 1st October and for the others 1st November (for those later in the year it is fine to be a maybe for now!).
Do get in touch if you have any questions, otherwise I look forward to receiving your application form.
