Argentina focuses on growth and development
Children take to the court at a mini-volleyball tournament in Argentina
Numerous initiatives were put in place including Volleyball Your Way festivals, activities at schools, mini-volleyball events during competitions like the FIVB Volleyball World League and the FIVB Volleyball Girls' U18 World Championship, and courses both national and international and with the backing of regional volleyball development centres.
Last year, children flocked to the 36 courts at the Polideportivo Gorki Grana in Moron to participate in the Volleyball Your Way movement for the first time. That event was followed by others including the Volleyball Your Way festival held in the city of Olavarria, which introduced hundreds of enthusiastic children to the movement.
FeVA’s ties with the country's National Sport Secretariat also helped get children involved in volleyball festivals, which in turn gave them an opportunity to witness high-level volleyball including friendly matches between the national team and Croatia in the run-up to the 2017 FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix.
The federation has also continued to work on a school-based programme. The programme, which has been a success for many years, keeps growing and improving as it spreads nationwide and to private schools.
FeVA’s projects have aimed to cultivate interest in the sport and hone the talents of young people across the country. Mini-volleyball tournaments have also helped to get children playing the sport and picking up new skills.
The sport's coaches have not been forgotten either. Providing expertise, FeVA has organised in excess of 50 courses with as many as 2,000 participants in training sessions, conferences and symposiums.
