Originally formed as Cardiff Ladies Volleyball Club in 1979, the club achieved numerous successes over the years. In the last few years we opened up membership to male players and in 2014 it made sense to re-brand the club under the more inclusive name of Cardiff Volleyball Club.
As a club, our ethos is to actively encourage training and development for all levels of ability, within a welcoming, friendly, inclusive and social environment, whilst retaining a strong competitive force. We are an ambitious club, with one of our squads already competing in the English National Volleyball League and future plans to increase levels of competition throughout our squads, providing the opportunity for individual and team development.
The club currently has six competitive teams, playing in local, regional and national leagues. Additionally, we actively develop beginners of all ages from age 13 up, and also help club members to train as coaches and referees.
Whether you are new to volleyball, a returning player or an experienced veteran, we guarantee you will receive a warm welcome!
Every successful club requires a strong spine to ensure that the club is run efficiently – and a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make this happen! Our committee and other willing helpers do just that. From coaching, organising our busy club diary and membership records, managing our finances, overseeing safeguarding and child protection or promoting every aspect of the club, you can rest assured the club is in safe hands.
Take a look at the club constitution for more details on how the club is governed.
To aid in the growth and wellbeing of our junior memberships we have appointed a safeguading officer (Rebecca Nicholls), who is contactable through the Teamo app for members and their guardians.
We also have in place a safeguarding policy in line with Volleyball Wales and Volleyball England guidelines, and have DBS checks in place for all our coaches.
