New EU project – Play volleyball, grow with it (PVGW)

The European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) hosted in their headquarters in Luxembourg on 12-13 February 2019 the kick off meeting of a new initiative entitled “Play volleyball, grow with it” (PVGW).

Funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Sport programme, this 3-year project coordinated by CEV has the objective to promote volleyball at the grassroots level and implement an innovative way to introduce volleyball at school with a focus on youth aged between 8 to 12 years old.

The first phase of the work programme will see the consortium working through the development of an innovative methodology to introduce volleyball in school. The training of the teachers and the concrete testing of the concept through delivery in local schools with the support of volleyball clubs and national federations will then follow during the second phase of the project.

The consortium led by CEV gathers four national volleyball federations (Estonia, Finland, Former Y.R. of Macedonia and Slovakia), two universities (the German Sport University of Cologne and the Faculty of Sport Sciences of the Hacettepe University in Turkey) and EOSE.

EOSE was represented by Executive Director, Aurélien Favre, and Board Member, Simone Digennaro.

It is a pleasure to be involved in such an initiative aiming to enhance physical activity among children, provide support to PE teachers to introduce volleyball at the entry level, create synergies between teachers and coaches, and to grow the game at grassroots level. (More information)
