Lincolnshire school volleyball – Nov 2017

In November, 12 teams from four schools traveled to Spalding High School to play in this year’s Lincolnshire South East School Sport Partnership Volleyball.

Many pupils had not played volleyball before and it was great to see how quickly they improved as the day progressed.

All teams played seven matches with pool games in the morning followed by knockouts.  All the children displayed excellent teamwork, passion and respect. Organiser Rupert Gibson, of Agilitas Sports, gave huge thanks to Spalding High School for hosting the event and providing pupils from their Leadership Academy to officiate.

Results: 1st Langtoft A; 2nd Moulton John Harrox B; 3rd Moulton John Harrox A; 4th Langtoft B; 5th Long Sutton C; 6th Spalding Parish C; 7th Long Sutton B; 8th Spalding Parish B; 9th Langtoft C; 10th Moulton John Harrox C; 11th Spalding Parish A; 12th Long Sutton A.

Langtoft qualify for the county finals in April.

East Midlands Volleyball AGM and Awards Night 2017

Volleyball Review – End of Year

Over the summer the EMVA held the Annual General Meeting and awards evening.  As always, the volunteers that make up the committee come together with members of the various clubs across the East Midlands.

Especially important is to celebrate the volleyball achievements from the past 12 months and discuss how to improve and increase volleyball participation across the region.

Junior Volleyball

On top of what local clubs do for their junior players the EMVA has been supporting this with the regional development training squads.

Secondly, the Grand Prix competitions have been instrumental in helping our juniors to be match ready for the Inter-regionals.  The inter-regionals are held annually at the end of indoor season in May.

East Midlands Regional Volleyball League

Most noteworthy, is that a record number of 13 men’s teams entered into the 2016-17 leagues and now there are 7 women’s teams too.  Rules on allowing a limited number of NVL players into Div 1 of both men and women keeps it competitive.  Whereas, allowing men’s 2 division to have mixed sex teams has kept the development league thriving.
