Over the past few years Volleyball England have made significant progress in a number of important areas across the entire England Talent Pathway. One of their most significant achievements has been to launch a Senior Academy network, based at 5 Higher Education Institutions across the country.
TASS has played a fundamental part in helping Volleyball England develop this network and enhance the pathway towards their 2024 strategic vision for the sport.
The partnership support between TASS and Volleyball England has been vital to extending the talent pathway beyond junior level, and bring to life the ‘dual career’ aspiration; supporting identified talented athletes in their pursuit of volleyball sporting excellence alongside academic excellence at HE level, which is key for their future career ambitions.
TASS supports athletes that are within the England Senior Development Programme, typically based at one of the Volleyball England Senior Academies; Bournemouth University, Northumbria University, Sheffield Hallam University, University of East London and University of Essex.
