|Guernsey Open 2016 Info
After deciding, for various reasons, not to go ahead with the Guernsey Open Tournament last year, we would like to start planning this year’s Tournament a little earlier, in the hope that most of you will probably still be playing your 2015/2016 season.
The dates we are aiming for games are:
We still intend, like 2014, to have a small welcome party on the Friday night, for those who can get here on the Friday, with games being held on the Saturday and Sunday and then the presentation evening on the Sunday night.
We will be looking at various different types of accommodation to see if we can get any decent packages, as we appreciate it can be quite costly to come over, and we will advise as soon as we have more details.
Please could you advise:
If you have any questions, please let me know.
2016 SWVA AGM Notice
To all clubs in the South West Region…

Can you please, on the attached form, by May 24th let me know if you are attending and also nominate officers.
Time To Listen (TTL) Course – Exeter
Time To Listen (TTL) is a workshop designed to support Club Welfare Officers. The workshop is easy to follow and will enable you to fully understand your role in the club, and help you to effectively safeguard young people in your care. The TTL course has been developed by the Child Protection in Sport Unit of the NSPCC.
Date & Venue
The Exeter & District VA have now arranged a TTL course on Monday, June 6th, 7-10 pm at the Coaver Club in Exeter. The cost will be £35 per candidate and refreshments will be provided. (Cheques payable to the EDVA)
To Book your place, please email Ros Sutherland email@example.com
Who Needs to Attend?
All sports need to have a Club Welfare Officer next year and the sport of Volleyball is no different. To take part in any volleyball events, clubs need to be registered with Volleyball England with one or two Club Welfare Officer’s who have completed a Time To Listen and a Safe Guarding Course.
As this is a legal requirement for your club to operate, it is anticipated that club’s will be sponsoring their candidates to attend the course. As above it is generally suggested that a club has a minimum of two trained CWO’s.
