EVF Development Plan July 2007

 

1. Introduction

This version of the plan agreed in principle at the regions AGM on 31st March 2007 was then circulated to county contacts and Volleyball England for consultation. It was adopted on 2nd July. It draws on the work of Volleyball England (VE), its 2005-9 Whole Sport Plan and Regional Development Plan template, the EssexVA Development Plan and various pieces of work undertaken on behalf of the Region by its officers – see Appendices.

The period 2007-2013 is deliberate. From 2007 the region will move to a region lite delivery where counties will be expected to take a greater role in development. This is partly by choice following an EGM in September 2006, but also a reflection of the limited capacity of volunteers. The 2013 end date is set to go beyond the London Olympic and Paralympic Games as we must think beyond that momentous event if legacy is to be achieved.

This is the first such plan and has had to be constructed without the benefit of bottom up plans from five of the six counties, Essex having completed such a plan two years ago that is now being revised. It is hoped that as time passes other counties will follow suit. Certainly it is anticipated that the document will evolve as regards both strategy and action plans. The strategy is expected to undergo a major review during its first year as there are proposals to alter the funding arrangements for selected sports to increase the amounts directed through regions as opposed to national levels. It is proposed that action plans be subject to annual review with the first year detailed and subsequent years indicative only.

 

2. Background

2.1 Sport in England is undergoing a significant period of transformation which commenced even before the award of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to London with the recognition by government of the arguments that sport and physical activity could help deliver social and health (and therefore financial) benefits. Game Plan published in Dec 2002 has led to major changes in infrastructure and delivery through state education, the separation of participation from elite performance and the roll out of ‘The Delivery System for Sport in England’ which seeks to provide a framework at national, regional, county and community levels. The aim is for increased numbers taking part especially amongst the hard to reach and to build talent pathways to support young people. This delivery structure is led at each layer by the public sector and its agencies but includes the voluntary and community plus private sectors. Its primary metric is an annual increase of 1% pa in the levels of participation in ‘sport’ where this here extends beyond traditional sports to physical activity in a range of forms so that dancing, walking, even gardening is included.

From an EVF perspective the key organisations in this Delivery System are now - Sport England East Regional Sports Board which has its own strategy for the region and controls use of the Community Investment Fund; East National Governing Body Forum and the Regional Coach Development Group. There are other groups with which there is value in maintaining contact. The CCPR regional body – The Federation of Eastern Sport was dissolved earlier in 2007, but if and when a successor appears membership there should be reconsidered.

 

2.2 East of England is one of 9 English regions and consists of the 6 counties of Bedfordshire (incl Luton Unitary), Cambridgeshire (incl Peterborough Unitary), Essex (incl Thurrock and Southend Unitaries), Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. The population of 5.46m (9.2% of UK) has increased by 12.5% between 1981-2003 and will rise to 6.14m by 2021 with over half over age 50. 50% of the population live in rural areas; the region has no major conurbations but includes a number of mid size new and historic cities and market towns. It has higher proportions of older people but lower levels of BME communities than nationally. Within this overall picture there are a full range of different population make ups with Luton having significant BME communities and region-wide 92 wards falling into the most deprived in England. Recent years have also seen an influx of migrants from Europe often working for minimum wage in agricultural communities. The economy has undergone significant structural change away from agriculture towards service industries. Proximity to London especially Herts and Essex dictates transport links are primarily radial although the A14 has alleviated this. There are good links to the continent via Stansted and Luton (home of budget airlines), Harwich and Lowestoft. Most public sector regional offices are based in Cambridge making it a de facto capital although many other population centres exist including Peterborough, Norwich, Hertford, Ipswich, Luton, Bedford, Colchester and Chelmsford. In Thames Gateway (South Essex), Haven Gateway (NE Essex and SE Suffolk) and M11 corridor the region has 3 of the 4 national development areas and will see significant expansion in housing development over the next 15 years.

 

2.3 East Volleyball Federation has a long history going back to 1960’s and was formed by Neville Lewis then an officer with Sport England. It consists of a loose federation of the county associations from the six member counties. Those counties have waxed and waned over this time. Bedfordshire at present does not have a county structure although contact is maintained with clubs and schools in the county that play. The strength of the Federation has always come from its counties and their strength often reflects the local clubs, schools and universities, population size and geographical factors. Essex with the highest population (1.63m or 30% of total) and high population density has been the most active in the last decade including filling many regional officer roles. The region continues to field teams in NVL at varying levels but has often struggled to maintain a presence in Divisions 1. However its junior/school/Uni teams have been traditionally strong with some e.g. Cambs Uni, Tendring (Essex) and St Clement Dane (Herts) consistently producing teams and players of high quality who have won national and junior interregional titles and gone on to represent England. Current figures for affiliations for clubs, coaches and referees are shown in Appendix A and outlines of the counties are shown at Appendix B.

The region is part of the administrative structure of volleyball in Great Britain. It is an unincorporated body managed by unpaid voluntary officers elected annually at its AGM. Structurally, it sits between the six counties and Volleyball England (VE) with voting membership extending to all, regional colleges, schools, coaches, referees or individuals in affiliation with VE. The role of regions is currently defined in Volleyball England’s constitution as ‘regional administration’ although the regional constitution, which VE have ratified, expands on this with the aim:

Against this must be set the capacity and resources of the region and its counties to deliver such aims. These mainly consist of unpaid volunteer time in a climate of increasing red tape, pressure for accreditation and training and increasing work pressures on free time when capacity is already stretched.

 

3. Vision and aims

3.1 Vision Volleyball is an accessible sporting choice for people of East Region

This vision encompasses the three major forms of the sport – indoor, beach and sitting and the concepts of equity as being accessible to all.

 

3.2 Region-lite approach.

In delivering this vision the region sees its role as complementary to that of counties and local clubs where most of the actual delivery will be based. Equally there are tasks and actions which VE nationally are better resourced to undertake with its team of full time professional officers. EVF will focus on the participation and development of players up to regional representative level rather than the elite and NVL areas which are rightly the province of VE.

As a Federation of willing partners in counties, clubs and individuals, EVF does not envisage becoming a major organisation in its own right. It is the servant of this membership and seeks to support rather than displace those working in counties, clubs and education actually delivering development of the sport to its participants. Regional resources will continue to consist primarily of the expertise and freely given time of its officers. This willingness however has to be two way and this means regional effort will be focussed on those counties supporting and working with EVF.

Therefore the Region-lite principle on which this plan is based is that EVF will only take the lead in activities where at least one of the following apply:

It is worth being clear here that this means the region does not currently see a direct and major role in the actions for:

Also the regional role in areas such as volunteer development, refereeing and coaching will be selective and may in some areas limited to advocacy or co-ordination at regional or national levels. Appendices C and D seek to identify some of the action areas regions and counties will be responsible for.

 

3.3 Aims

These aims identify those areas of activity where the region will seek to lead

  1. Act as a communications link between VE and counties

  2. Support the development of coaches and referees through:

  3. Run regional competitions

  4. Co-ordinate appropriate representative squads

  5. To be fit for purpose

  6. Represent the interests of volleyball in regional fora
    - to identify and engage with suitable regional groups

 

3.4 Priorities

For at least the first year priority for location of deployment of resources will be:

High – Essex, Cambs Medium – Norfolk, Suffolk Low – Beds, Herts This reflects the present engagement of counties to support EVF.

In terms of activities the highest first year priorities are officer recruitment, realistic development plan, referee recruitment and development and sitting volleyball. We also recognise VE Coach Commission desire to grow the number of female active coaches.

 

4. Action plans

Note these include ‘business as normal’ in some areas. EVF will also seek to take advantage of opportunities that arise outside these specific actions.

Appendix D - SPORTS FACILITIES STRATEGY FOR THE EAST REGION

NGB Questionnaire – EVF response December 2006

Please answer the questions below in relation to your sport.

Contact Name:

Ken Edwards

Name of Governing Body:

East Volleyball Federation

Sport:

Guess from name of Governing body!

Contact Number:

01245 474425

 

  1. Does the Governing Body have a Facilities StrategyYes/No

  2. Does the Governing Body have a Whole Sport Plan? Yes/No

  3. Do you consider the existing facilities in the East Region are currently meeting the identified requirements of the sport on a regional/sub-regional level (consider aspects of quantity, quality and suitability)?Yes/ No

 

How have you arrived at this conclusion? (please explain your thinking – i.e. lack of facilities for junior participation)

 

Lack of double size halls in the region capable of providing two courts for simultaneous use limit the opportunities to host competitions at local, county and regional levels. Known facilities that meet this include Brentwood, Chelmsford Riverside (Essex), Hatfield (Herts), St Ives (Cambs) and Sportspark, Lynn Sport (Norfolk), and possibly Alexandra Hall, (Bedford).

The current base size of 37m x 18m is limiting fro many sports other than badminton whereas 37m x 18m could better accommodate sports such as basketball and netball as well as volleyball. This increase of 37% in floor size would in contrast double the capacity for many team sports as well as providing an additional 50% for badminton. Total build costs would not increase by the same percentages as common services such as changing would not increase proportionately.

So the solution offered not only works for volleyball and reflects the more varied nature of sport now played in England.

 

  1. What are the future facility requirements for your sport in the East of England? Please detail requirements (including potential locations) and identify these in order of priority:

 

Facility Requirement (Highest Priority First)

Potential Location(s)

Indoor halls minimum 37m x 28m

All populations centres over 50,000

Outdoor permanent posts

Beach locations especially Norfolk, Suffolk and North Essex coasts.

Dedicated beach court (regional use)

Cambridge

Outdoor permanent posts

Park locations in selected centres (50-100 locations potentially in region)

  1. Are you involved in any capital projects for your sport within the region? (could be through local authority investment, club investment, HE/FE investment). Yes/No

  2. Please detail any major venues or national training centres for your sport in the East Region.

 

Name and location of major venue or national training centre

Facilities provided at the venue

Sportspark, Norwich

 

You will have specific specification. At such events
often four courts can be in simultaneous operation

Tendring Technical College

In the process of becoming a junior academy based on a consistent record for excellence. Hosts a National League team

Standard school sportshall – single court

Brentwood International Centre

Hosts outdoor tournaments and home venue for three National League teams

Two full courts

 

  1. Does your sport currently host any events above county level within the East of England? Yes/No

If yes, please provide details:

 

Name and location of event

Competition level

Junior inter-regional tournament (u14 and u16 girls, u15 and u17 boys)
Sportspark, Norwich

National

Inter-county and Inter-area tournament
for men and women (4 competitions)

Sportspark Norwich

National

Great Yarmouth Beach Classic Volleyball Tournament (part of Grand Prix circuit)
Great Yarmouth Central Beach

National

Open age regional competition (separate men’s and women’s
Sportspark, Norwich

Regional

JUVO – Outdoor junior tournament
Brentwood International Centre

Regional

VETVO – Outdoor veterans tournament

Brentwood International Centre

Regional

Cambridge Outdoor Tournament
- venue usually Cambridge RFU

Regional

There is also a regional outdoor tournament that has started up during 2006 at Perkins Sports facility, Peterborough.

 

  1. Could your sport host a sporting event in the region beyond that which you have outlined in Q7 above?Yes/No

If yes, please detail;

 

Name and potential location of event

Competition level

International matches, potentially at any centre with – double court, parking and spectator facilities of at least 250 for indoor or Sitting Volleyball (Paralympic sport) where specific equipment is required

 

International

 

OR, if no, what would be required in order to do so?

 

Urban beach volleyball (played on drop in courts in population centres might be possible subject to agreement with local authorities, funding and equipment. Would only be appropriate for major population centres i.e. 100,000+

The main constraints here are usually volunteer capacity, funding and local centre and government co-operation rather than ‘raw facility’ issues

 

9. Please feel free to make any other comments you feel are relevant:

 

If you confine this survey to indoor or sport dedicated facilities you will miss the potential for wider participation on an informal basis, hence the inclusion by us of non sport specific outdoor venues.

You might consider actual availability of facilities as well as number. Many school located facilities are not actually available for general sports use And this can only be exposed by data showing actual usage both temporal and by variety of sports. Often there are hidden barriers to their use.

The feel of the questionnaire is that you are only interested in major event hosting.

Although not currently in use by Volleyball, Hertfordshire Sport Village would be a potential venue for major volleyball use.

Upskilling – How many of the existing workforce need upskilling

 

Norfolk

Suffolk

Essex

Herts

Beds

Cambs

Regional (not included in the county figures)

Number of volunteers
Specific data was provided by Norfolk but in essence a significant proportion of the existing workforce need upskilling as there is no CPD within coaching or administration.
As a working assumption I would take 75% of existing workforce as benefiting from enhancement of skills. However existing pressure on this overwhelmingly volunteer workforce mean that there is little capacity and indeed appetite for such training beyond say 10%.
The figures are therefore speculative at best.
Remote training e.g. IT/workbook may be a part solution here
