New Coaching Role at University of Warwick

Written by

Our friends at the University of Warwick are currently looking for a new Coach for their volleyball teams.  It's a great role for coaches looking to get a bit more experience with some committed teams - and we thought it might be of interest to some of our members!  As you know, we work closely with the University and they host some of our training sessions outside of training times.  A number of our members are also studying at the Uni and playing in the Uni teams as well as for Riga.  All the details are available here - https://www.volleyballengland.org/about_us/about_us_/job_vacancies.  If you might be interested do get in touch!

Mens NVL Division 2 Team Seek New Coach

Written by

Riga Mens Team are actively seeking a coach for the 2017/8 season.  Interested...read on!

We will be playing in National League Division 2 for the 2017/8 season and have a strong core of players who are committed to improving both as individuals and as a team.  Thanks to a very strong finish to the last season we finished 8th in the league and are looking to improve on that for the coming season.  We were without a coach from the start of the last season and, while many of the more experienced players helped running sessions and taking charge at matches, it was a difficult season without one voice to bring us together.  We reached out to the coach of our ladies team to help out with some games at the end of the season and saw a marked improvement in our match results!  We're a team that's ready and willing to be coached - a coaches dream for sure..!  Click Read More!
