The Sainsbury UKSGs 2016 will be held in Loughborough from 1 September to 4 September 2016. Potential players need to be available for these dates as well as a preparation camp between 27 August and 29 August (bank holiday weekend). A training camp either in the UK or abroad in August 16 is currently under consideration. There will be training times on weekends between April and Mid July, which all chosen players must attend in order to be able to be selected. All dates will be confirmed in due time and will be provided together with the selection into the squad.
Again, in 2016 Volleyball Wales are not receiving any funding from Sport Wales or UK Sport for the school games and have to fund it themselves. It is envisaged that players will have to contribute up to £250 to help fund the school games participation and training requirements. Fundraising events will be organised to help reduce this amount.
A squad of up to 16-18 players will be selected for the initial training period. This squad will be narrowed down to 12 players for the event.
