(9 hrs/wk in 3 sessions)
Ages 12 - 16*
15 Hours of English lessons
This new Beach Volleyball Programme is combined with our 15 hour English Course and is available to boys and girls aged 13 – 16 years. This programme is available in July only to guarantee sufficient numbers.
There are 3 x 3 hours of Beach Volleyball each week, tutored by a qualified coach. Students are coached to a high standard and the course covers all of the skills areas needed to then fully participate in actual games.
The sessions will take place at the fantastic beach courts in Croyde. The students will receive beach volleyball instruction from Volleyball England registered coaches who have been themselves tutored by GBR international and National team coach Denise Austin.
The aim of the coaching is to help the student become fully aware of all the skills required to play beach volleyball, the difference to the indoor game playing in pairs, serving, digging, setting, attacking, blocking and defending. Learning new skills from the pokey to the tomahawk, diving digs to turn and burn!
One full day excursion and at least three evening activities taken from the Discovering Devon Programme are also included in this programme each week.
A typical week's Beach Volleyball Programme with 15 hours of lessons, might be as follows:
Please bring comfortable sports wear suitable for all weathers, wet or hot and sunny. Beach volleyball is played barefoot. Students are recommended to bring sunblock, a drink and sunglasses to each session.

"The teachers and the staff (activity leaders) are great. My host family is the best I’m sure. This year I’ve come because of them, for the school. North Devon is gorgeous."
