CDRV organises first course in Brazil

The CDRV's refereeing course in Rio de Janeiro opened on November 2
Buenos Aires, Argentina, November 3, 2015 - The Regional Development Centre (CDRV) based in the Argentine capital Buenos Aires opened its first ever course in Brazil on November 2 when candidates from ten countries gathered in Rio de Janeiro for a seven day beach volleyball refereeing seminar.

The course instructors include
FIVB Refereeing Commission Members Maria Amélia Villas-Bôas from Brazil and José Casanova from Portugal, and FIVB Rules of the Game Commission President Alexander Steel from Scotland.

During the course's opening ceremony, the 20 participants
from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela were joined by South American Volleyball Confederation representative Marcelo Wangler, Ricardo Trade from the Brazilian Volleyball Federation (CBV), course organiser Elzir Martins de Olivera (also from the CBV) and representatives of the Escuela de Educación Fisica del Ejercito, where the course is taking place.

CDRV Director Gabriel Salvia highlighted the importance of the course. "[...] The Development Centre in Argentina is fulfilling one of the FIVB's goals: to have an impact on a regional and international level, fostering cooperation between institutions which aim to develop volleyball in a sustainable manner."

The FIVB's Development Centres were set up to help develop volleyball on all continents. They aim to achieve this goal by intensifying international cooperation, promoting professionalism in both volleyball and beach volleyball and providing technical and administrative structures for volleyball associations in neighbouring countries. This is done by conducting courses for management, referees and coaches in accordance with other programmes approved by the FIVB and by providing guidance to players, teachers, coaches, referees and to all other members of the volleyball family.
