Little Giants Volleyball Club are attracting local young people to try out the sport since the launch of the new after school sessions running across Clapham, Brixton and Wandsworth. The club is delighted to tell everyone it has introduced additional sessions at Brixton Leisure Centre this month. The first sessions with juniors and adult groups were deemed, "What a success!"
Players of all abilities are welcome from ages 7 to 17 were welcomed.
Cisel, Little Giants' general secretary, explains the thinking behind the programme. “Last season when we ran the junior programme for the first time, it was great to see so many children get active after school and the smiles on their faces,”
“For some, it was their first volleyball experience. Volleyball and London are a great match - it is a sport that children can practice in any weather: rain or shine. It is a truly global Olympic sport, highly popular in different corners of the world, like Turkey, Italy, Brazil and Japan. Our programme is recreational as well as competitive, in addition to providing a pathway to elite volleyball. Two of our players from last year’s programme got noticed by England Under 15s.”
“Our sessions are scheduled around school hours. With years of experience in education, I can appreciate the demands working and living in London puts on families, so working hours is one of the factors we wanted to accommodate.”
Junior sessions run every Friday at Brixton Recreation Centre and Sunday at Clapham Leisure Centre, plus two single gender Saturday sessions for advanced players.
