With the huge success and popularity of indoor and beach volleyball at the London 2012 Olympics, Thanet District Council (TDC) are offering residents with a passion for coaching the opportunity to do something new and rewarding next year. If you are looking for a new challenge then keep ahead of the game by checking out the Council’s Level 1 Volleyball coaching course in February.

Colin Rouse Thanet District Council’s Sports Development Officer said: “Volleyball is a fantastic sport for taking that first step into coaching. - Whatever your ability or experience volleyball is fun and coaching techniques can be adapted to suit all abilities.  Already one of the top three most-played sports worldwide; it is rapidly becoming more and more popular in the UK. We are keen to get more local coaches qualified to help drive the development of both indoor and beach volleyball in the area.  By offering this course we aim to encourage these new coaches to get involved in coaching at the emerging community sports clubs, delivering coaching sessions at the new Beach sports court and to have the opportunity to boost their coaching résumés."
The three week course will start on Saturday 16 February, with the following sessions on 23 February and 9 March. It will be based at the Ursuline Sports College, Westgate on Sea and will consist of both the practical and theoretical elements. The course fee is £150.00 per candidate, but TDC will provide 50% funding for any Thanet-based participants.
