HEVO Programme

Higher Education Volleyball Officer (HEVO) Programme

In January 2010 Volleyball England, as part of their commitment to developing Higher Education volleyball, launched the Higher Education Volleyball Officer (HEVO) programme.

This programme offers students from all universities a voluntary position to work with the National Governing Body and their university. The roles involve leading and co-ordinating the development of recreational volleyball at the host institution in order to encourage new players to come into the sport and to ensure all players have a quality experience at whatever level they participate.


  • Over 6000 students participating weekly through the programme
  • Upskill a network of HEVOs to become deliverers of recreational volleyball in the higher education setting
  • Develop the provision of referees within the higher education environment
  • Increase the number of students accessing high quality volleyball competitions (includes HEVOs running a mass participation festival)

  • A grant for volleyball club to develop recreational sessions and a mass participation festival
