The 2014-15 National Volleyball League, Coaches Player of the Year was at hand to guide the stars of tomorrow from Scarborough College, as part of a new exciting partnership between the school and North Yorkshire Sports Team of the Year, North Riding Eagles VC .
Scarborough College is once again offering new and exciting opportunities to their students by enriching the sports curriculum with the introduction of the exciting sport of volleyball. The decision to bring the world’s second most popular team sport to Scarborough College has been greeted with enthusiasm by the students.
“We are delighted to be offering volleyball to our students and the partnership with North Riding Eagles ensures our students will get access to the best coaching available. Already the students have had sessions led by national league players with international experience and all this is overseen by one of the country’s best volleyball player development coaches, Anthony Laffan. The programme that is being put together for the students will provide them with lots of opportunities and already they are looking forward to the visit of the men’s GB Olympic Captain, Ben Pipes.” Mr Phil Wilson, teacher at Scarborough College.
