FREE Assistant Coach course places up for grabs for Birmingham 2022 activators

Every learner who completes our Commonwealth Games Activator training and both organises and reports on a volleyball ‘come and try it’ session will be put into a draw to win a free place on an Assistant Coach Award course.

Millions of people will watch the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, which kickstart later this month, creating a golden opportunity to attract new participants into the sport.

‘Come and try it’ sessions are a crucial first step for many, and so we are encouraging clubs to organise sessions and supporting them to feel more confident while gaining more capacity via free activator training.

Our expert tutors Denise Austin and Sam Dunbavin will guide learners through what it takes to set up a taster session. We’ll even send out a handy toolkit with a comprehensive risk assessment, social media templates, and session plans to all attendees. 

The training sessions begin on 11th July and will run every weeknight from 19:30-21:30 up until 22nd July.

  • Have a member attend one of the 2-hour online Commonwealth Games Activator courses
