Becoming A Member
What Do We Offer?
We offer competitive team volleyball at many different levels. If you want to play for one of our teams, you must become a member of the club & pay the membership fee. If your membership fees are not up to date, you are not eligible to play for a team. We do NOT offer turn up and pay for team training sessions.
We also have a recreational session, where you can learn to play volleyball and play just for fun, with no other commitments. Your first 2 training sessions are free, to help find out if you fit in. These sessions are 2 hours long and costs £8 (£5 for concessions and students). Discounts available for sever sessions paid in advance. You can find out when these sessions are

York Volleyball Club emphasises long-term player development of physical, emotional, and social skills. While winning is a priority in club volleyball, winning will not be placed above good sportsmanship (defined as respecting rules and procedures, teammates, other players, coaches, officials, opponents and oneself). It is our goal to create an environment that will benefit the individual as well as the team. In our recreational sessions the aim is on participation and enjoyment, but all players must respect one another and coaches. Players and parents must understand that coaches aim is to assist the team in reaching its full potential. We can only achieve this by encouraging, acknowledging and supporting each other’s efforts in practice, fixtures and tournaments.
We want to remind all members and players that they are a role model for the club and your actions will reflect directly on the club and other members.
With regards to discipline we have adopted a two-stage policy – anyone not following the policy and demonstrating unacceptable behaviour will be given a verbal and formal warning. A second serious breach of the code will lead to them being asked to leave the club.
