OUR PROGRAMME

Following the huge growth of the SideOut Junior Beach Programme in the summer of 2021 and to allow our young members to continue to train, play, compete and develop their skills throughout the winter months, we are excited to introduce our new junior indoor training sessions for boys and girls aged 5-12.

Like our Junior Beach Programme, these sessions are managed and delivered by a highly experienced team of coaches and our goal is to combine fun with top quality training and playing opportunities in a friendly and safe environment where our young athletes can make new friends, improve their fitness, develop their skills and - should they eventually choose to - pursue opportunities to compete at local, national or even international level!

VOLLEYBALL vs BEACH VOLLEYBALL

Apart from the obvious difference – beach volleyball is played on sand, while indoor volleyball is played on a hard surface – there are also several other differences between the 2 incredibly popular Olympic sports, including court size, team sizes, scoring and tactics. However, they also have many similarities and we strongly believe that the skillsets required in each discipline are complementary to each other and that young athletes can benefit greatly from getting quality coaching in both volleyball and beach volleyball.

A good case in point is our partner volleyball club, Polonia SideOut London. The team is coached by our very own Mark Kontopoulos and they are not only the current National Champions in indoor volleyball, but they also feature 5 players who are ranked in the top 8 beach volleyball teams in the UK, including the 2020 and 2021 National Champions!

THE SESSIONS

All indoor volleyball activities take place at Pastures Youth Centre, 15 Davies Lane, Leytonstone, E11 3DR between October and March each year.
