What the coach says

The volleyball program in Warwick has seen a lot of investment recently. The club is at an exciting time in its development whereby we now have three levels of playing available as well as coaching and refereeing opportunities. The performance program provides student athletes with regular on court sessions and valuable support from strength and conditioning, physio, sport psychology and video analysis. I believe that this program will aid athletes in the development of their volleyball careers and thus help them reach their full potential."
