Junior Free Style Grand Prix 2009

As mentioned at the last EMVA meeting Lincolnshire will be running the Junior Freestyle Grand Prix again this year.

Dates have been set (see below) and it will run 1000-1300 (play ends approx 1230) at Lincoln college.  There will be a charge of £2 per player per league day (which only works out at £14 for the year – 7 league days with the top 3 at the end of the season receiving medals and all getting certificates). Players can pay on the day of each event or for the full season.


League Day Dates;









It would be great to see all junior players from across the region playing together over the season helping in the prep for the regionals.


Please pass on this information to any Juniors you may have in your clubs or know of elsewhere.


Also, the Lincolnshire Junior Development Programme is due to start on Saturday 19th September at Lincoln College (Sports Hall) and will run from 1000-1200.


As previous years;  we charge £3 per training session and work on 3 periods over the year for payment if possible (Period 1 = Sept-Dec; Period 2 = Jan-Mar; Period 3 = April-Aug). We are happy for any juniors to join in on the sessions for additional training, so please make junior players aware of these sessions if you feel they are appropriate.


All FGP and LJDP training sessions can be found on Lincoln Cannons VC websitesoon; www.cannonsvolleyball.co.uk
