Preseason is Back!
By Saints Volleyball, Jul 1 2016 09:00AM
The St Andrews University Volleyball Club Performance Pre-Season will take place from Sunday, August 28th to Friday, September 2nd at the University Sports Centre (St Leonards Road) and various venues across town.
Pre-season training aims to prepare players to get back into training routines, test their physical abilities and re-build team dynamics. It will consist of a variety of court-time trainings, strength and conditioning session, beach volleyball games, agility and mobility exercise routines, all to ensure competitive players can jump back into the season, prevent injuries and work towards high performance results.
The week also allows for the welcoming of new players into the club, their acclimatization to the town and the sports programme, and will include many social events (BBQs, Sinners social, etc.). Team building and cross-team bonding is a considerable part of Saints Volleyball and is given as much attention as the physical and technical aspect of the sport.
Pre-season will build on expected physical conditioning over the summer, as outlined by Luke Birmingham, our S&C trainer – have a look at the programme here (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B74CfQdDFPz3c3FGUUNDUkJMLU0/view?usp=sharing). Try and keep up with these sessions as much as possible, as it’ll prevent any injuries or rough soreness when you get back into the swing of things!
Accommodation will be provided – either at current students’ flats, or in university-provided accommodation. When completing the registration form, do specify whether you will need accommodation, or whether you can host incoming players (or your friends who won’t have their flats yet).
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to address them to Leo Song (President - firstname.lastname@example.org), Alexandra Smith (Women’s Captain - email@example.com), Karol Buda (Men’s Captain - firstname.lastname@example.org), Armelle Duvieusart (PR Officer - email@example.com) or just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
We all look forward to see you there!
