Coaching in Canterbury


Volleyball rules are simple.
If it is on the floor, pick it up
and get it into the air.
If it is in the air, keep it off the floor.
John Kessel

As a sport, we are extremely lucky to have so many passionate and dedicated coaches within our Canterbury Volleyball Community - it's absolutely fantastic.
