We love the game of volleyball and pride ourselves on welcoming and accommodating players of all ages and ability! We’re as interested in hearing from experienced players as people who have never picked up a volleyball.
If you’re new to the sport and you’re interested in getting fit, learning new skills and having fun, then you’re in the right place!
Guided by our Head Coach Steve Marshall and supported by our own team of experienced coaches/mentors we are able to develop skills at all levels of ability.
Through a range of leagues, we are able to offer the opportunity to play competitively at an appropriate level for every player – from National League through to local league.
For those who enjoy the game, but can’t commit to regular training and league games, we have regular social sessions and occasional friendly tournaments.
Opportunities for developing additional skills and gaining accreditation’s are available, such as volleyball coaching and refereeing qualifications.
How to join
Due to the extra considerations needed for organised sport since Covid appeared, we follow Government guidelines and continue to observe the recommended protocols to ensure a safe environment, including adherence to track and trace. To do this, we use a free app called Teamo which can be downloaded to your phone or viewed through your web browser.
For juniors, we are targeting our programme at players aged 13-18, but can make exceptions where we feel a younger player is able to cope with the training. Please contact us first if you are looking to sign up a player who is under 13.
- Either sign up on the web here, or in the app by entering your phone number to create a personal account, then searching for Cardiff Volleyball Club through the Find My Club option. If you’re under 18, a parent or guardian will need to sign up too.
- In the “Club section/team” part of the sign up form, the selected team should default to New Member. Select that option if not.
- Shortly after joining, one of our admin team will get in touch on the app and assign you to an appropriate training group.
- Once you have been assigned to a training group, you’ll be able to access the calendar in Teamo and will see the sessions which are relevant to you. See our training page for more details.
We have a very friendly atmosphere and a constant stream of new players . We always make sure that new players are ok and not isolated and introduced to someone straight away at their first training session.
We at Cardiff Volleyball Club work hard behind the scenes so that we can offer training sessions for everyone as well as appropriate levels of competition for our various squads.
We also know that some are unable or do not wish to commit to formal competition due to family/work commitments or for personal reasons, but do still wish to be part of the club, attend training sessions and informal Club events.
With that in mind, we are offering a range of subscription types, all of which will start with effect from the beginning of September.
New members get the first 2 sessions for free!
Membership vs. Subscription
We ask for an annual payment for club membership, and then monthly subscription payments during the indoor season.
The annual membership can be payed in instalments starting in September:
- Social and Regional: £10 x 3 monthly instalments
- National: £10 x 4 monthly instalments
The monthly subscriptions are then paid in 9 instalments from September to May:
- Social: £15 per month
- Regional: £25 per month
- National: £30 per month
Our Club now has around 250 members and with that comes a lot of organisation and expense! In addition to court hire, which is expensive, we also need to maintain and replace equipment (nets, posts and balls etc) as well as team kit. Also, to compete in various volleyball leagues there are costs such as entry fees, player registration and affiliation fees, additional court fees and referee costs. Generally, membership costs cover our annual expenditure such as league costs, kit and equipment, and subscriptions contribute to the extensive cost of court hire.
