Wrapped up Volleyball England Level 3!

I’m done!

The long journey to Volleyball England Level 3 coaching certification is over. I started it back in October last year. On Tuesday evening I attended a “How to Deliver Engaging Sessions for Young People” workshop in London. It was near famous Wembley Stadium, actually. That was the last of three required continuing professional development (CPD) workshops I needed to complete my certification requirements. This is after sitting the 5-day course and going through a practical coaching assessment.

Actually, Volleyball England already has me listed as a “Level III Theory” coach officially. They did that after I completed the course portion of things and passed the exam at the end. It’s now just a question of doing all the paperwork to complete the full certification process.

I’m glad to finish this process. The next step is to reactivate my USA Volleyball CAP certification. Unfortunately, I let that lapse during my time away from coaching. I hope they will let me at least back in at CAP I. I really am not keen on having to start all over again.
