Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Our dream is to set up a Beach Volleyball School in Yorkshire.
Ideally we would like to create a completely new sports facility that would consist of 4 beach volleyball courts, training area and a social club with a cafe. However we know that this would cost a fortune so for now we will concentrate on developing 2 courts with a shed for storage. This is a long term project and will require a lot of work and voluntary involvement from many people, so bare with us while we do our best to make this happen.
The main focus of our school would be to attract more people to the sport especially children and young adults. We would work with schools and communities to deliver fun as well as skills orientated sessions on a weekly basis.
Our organisation would also be open to anyone wanting to play beach volleyball regardless of their age or ability, whether it is to come and enjoy bouncing a ball, learn and develop new skills, train to participate in competitions or just to meet new people and socialise in a multicultural community.
Volleyball is a unique sport that once you get started you just can not simply stop; you will find that when you eventually get back home after your training you can't stop thinking, talking and dreaming about it. We call it a volleyball lifestyle.
The School would be an extraordinary facility in Yorkshire as there is nothing quite like this in the whole North of England.
This small fundraiser is just a start to get us going and see if there are any friendly and passionate people about sport willing to donate and invest in the future of English Volleyball.
We need every single penny to add to our pot which is very very deep, but for now our aim is £4000.
Who knows maybe one day the small kids playing with us today will make us proud by competing on the Olympic stage!

I am fully behind this amazing initiative to provide a space for coaching children and adults. If this idea comes true I will be one happy coach and a player!

About the fundraiser
York, United Kingdom
I love everything about beach volleyball, oh maybe not when it's raining ;) I train and play regularly indoor and on the beach, I am a qualified coach and a referee. Last year I started to teach a group of wonderful boys and girls who are already very passionate about the sport.
