Black Country School Games:


Year 9 & 10 event.

Gold and Silver in the Girls. Our year 9 Boys won Gold. The year 8 boys entered for experience and made great strides. We just need to be at training more consistently.


Year 7 & 8 tournament...our Year 7 Boys took Gold and Bronze. The girls were less successful but were competitive. With dedication and attendance at JuVoTo I am sure medals will be taken next year.


We are currently trying to recruit GIRLS in year 7 & 8 in particular.

Bulletin 3rd March, 2014
Hi everybody Parents and players alike

Your Volleyball club is so busy right now it's hard to keep track, just look at the events listed below and you can see how hard the club coaches volunteers and players are working. None of which could be achieved without parental support.

We are involved in the sport at so many levels from 7/8 year old beginners to National League, National age group cup and National teams….it's fantastic!!! Thank you for your efforts, the coaches really appreciate it.

Over the next month or 2 we need see more players at JUVOTO (year 7 to 9/10) and JUVOLLE ( year 9/10/11) tournaments. These competitions are so so important to the youngsters! They give practice and training meaning, whilst laying the foundations for performing in National Cups etc.

The club also needs more of our members supporting our Senior Mens and National League ladies games at FORTRESS REDHILL when we play at home on Saturdays. These are a great level for young players and parents to learn about the game…as well as good entertainment.

To make a positive difference would you please try and do 3 things to support the Volleyball club
1. Make sure your son or daughter attends the next tournament Juvoto or Juvolle
2. Pop in and support a Senior Boys or Girls Match
3. Follow us on twitter @redhillvball or visit our website

Many thanks for reading, look forward to seeing you.

Adult/Recreational Volleyball Tuesday nights 6 - 7.30
Hi everyone,
The club is organising a " Go spike" recreational session for those parents, friends and family members who would like to play some volleyball.

In the new year when all those fitness resolutions are made we thought this might be something that appeals to you.

It is intended to be a non competitive or at least mildly so. Games will be 3 or 4 a side so lots of touches of the ball.

There will be a "young leader" present and even some older players who can guide and advise re technique etc but it will not be a coach led session.

Starting on Tuesday 7th December from 6pm to 7:30pm for 7 weeks.

Joining up will 

Cost £2 per session.

If you could be so good as to email me back with names of those interested that would be very useful.

Message from John Siebert re match 13.1.13
Hi all,
Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year.
The next game for the boys is on Sunday 13th January 2013

Warm up at the moment is 6pm at:
George Elliot Scool Sports Hall,
Raveloe Drive
CV11 4QP
From Redhill its about an hours drive. I believe the mini-bus will be used for this trip but I'm going to have to get back to you with that.
Can you let me know whether your son can play.

2012 and 2013

A lot happened in 2012 and a lot more is happening in 2013.  Please read below more information from Mr Bragg. Get involved!


Hi everyone
With the new year in mind we will soon be sending a revised fixture list.
Some of you will know but others wont the wide range of competitions we are involved in.
A target for next the remainder of the season is to get the players involved in friday mini volleyball down to the games that the senior players are involved in.
We need to make that link and as many young players and parents have not seen our top sides in action it will be a learning curve for all.
Did you know for example that:
Senior boys A play in the Regional League and were last years League and Cup champions ( 20 matches )
Senior Boys B play in the same League (div 3 ) against university and other adult teams ( 14 matches )
Senior Girls play as Black country in the National League division 3 west, cardiff, Bristol etc and are currently on top of that table ( 21 games )
Senior Girls play in the west midlands league division 1 ( 14 matches )
So that is 30 games at home where supporters are wanted/need and welcome....Saturdays 4pm usually.
In addition we play in the National cup for Boys and girls at U15/U16&u18
thats round 1...round 2 which is 10 days of competition....then the last 8 of quarter and semi final weekend...and of course the National final.  Which over the 14 years of the clubs existence we have been in on 5 occasions.
So when that fixture list lands by email...take a look please and see where you can come and watch some games.

2ND OCTOBER 2012 Last night the senior boys were in action at Tamworth. With coach Nikolov employed elsewhere it was my turn to dust off the coaching jacket. In fairness the boys were comfortble winners and showed the opposition no mercy at times. MV

Sunday saw the National League girls travel to Cardiff. They came away with 2 resounding 3:0 victories over Cardiff Celts and Birmingham to go top of the league.

So on Saturday there was the first in the JUVOTO series. Cleobury and Tettenhall joined us and made a 14 team competition mixed boys and girls. Lots of fun and experience gained by year 7. Coaching from older boys and girls, Dan Henley, Harrun, Becky and Jodie.
The semi finals saw 2 of our year 8 girls squads lose to older boys teams....JUST!
The combined year 8/9 Boys beat Cleobury in the Final 21:16.

We have team up with a major housing association Bromford and are helping run an event for their charity arm Bromford Living.

So between 12:00pm and 3:30pm there will be an absolute beginners 3 / 4 a side volleyball tournament you can have 5 in a squad. you can turn up and practice from 11 if you are keen of course. Referees and coaching will be supplied by the club, all you need to do is bring your enthusiasm, energy, sense of humour and of course money. £5 a player.

You can simply turn up on the day by 12noon to register or even better still get a little family/friends group together before hand and let me know by email that you are coming.

There will be all the trimmings of bouncy castle and refreshments on site as well.

New Season beckons.
