Craig Handford

Volleyball Coach Who Trained England Women’s Top Team


Volleyball coach and Olympic speaker, Craig Handford is well known for teaching the basics and the finer elements of the sport to sportsmen and women, including many Olympic hopefuls.

In particular, he set up and led the England women’s development programme which ran from 1997 to 2003 and was held in Loughborough.

Working for Volleyball England, Craig has been involved in a Level 3 Coaching Course which operated from the Kettering Buccleuch Academy and The National Volleyball Centre. The course was designed for any coach looking to supervise a competitive team who wanted to have a greater tactical and technical understanding of how volleyball operates at the very top level in the 21st century.

Craig Handford has proved to be an extremely popular Olympic speaker because he draws on many years of experience as a top volleyball coach and tutor, not only at junior and senior level clubs but also for the England senior women’s national team.

Any coach who attended Craig’s excellent courses came away with a vastly improved grasp of how to plan and manage the performance of the team they were in charge of. And they were also able to create their own philosophy towards coaching that would enable them to progress to the highest level possible in the game of volleyball.
