NVL LADIES HEAD COACH

James Kemp

I have been involved in Volleyball for over 28-years and it’s so exciting to finally be part of a club with a real passion, desire and hunger for success!

As a coach I have been fortunate enough to have had so many quality players to work with – none more so than right now! I have always immersed myself within the sport and in particular with elite level coaches. This has helped me to develop my own philosophy and style of play, which my players buy into wholeheartedly.

My successes to date include being awarded National Children’s Coach of the Year in 2011, guiding my National League Ladies to the National Shield Final in 2012, and most recently coaching both Men’s and Ladies squads to their respective National League titles in 2016.

My goals and ambitions are high for New Forest Volleyball and I look forward to many years of success for this very unique club!

Club Director & Club Secretary

Jo Ankers

Jo arrived at NFV as a parent to one of our Junior Girls and the club soon became aware of her exceptional talents for management. The club was delighted when Jo came on board a few years ago to look at ways of marketing the club to increase our brand. Since that initial role, Jo is now one of our Club Directors and is a key member of our day-to-day staff. Jo is extremely passionate about young people in sport and this remains a key focus of hers in ensuring our provision for our satellite clubs and academy squads is second to none.

Lucy Parvin

Lucy has been a keen supporter of NFV for many years and was often on the sidelines cheering our teams on in matches. So it was a no brainer when the club finally decided to ask her to join the management team. With over 15-years experience in Teaching, Lucy was only too happy to take on our Safeguarding Officer role. Since coming into post, Lucy has attended several courses/seminars and ensures all our players and staff are continuously safe to enjoy our wonderful sport of volleyball.
