Alanya hosts special seminar for Beach Volleyball Technical Supervisors
The seminar was opened by CEV Vice President Miroslaw Przedpelski and via a series of working sessions the attendees got familiar with the procedures governing Beach Volleyball competitions placed under the authority of the CEV.
CEV Beach Volleyball Secretary Dennis Passig gave a general overview of the main tasks and duties of the Beach Volleyball Department and introduced the attendees to the specific features of the many forms especially worked out for Beach Volleyball competitions.
Henrique Gomes, Secretary of the European Beach Volleyball Commission (EBVC), draw the attention of the participants to the various reports they are supposed to get acquainted with, especially as they have to provide feedbacks to CEV about inspection visits or venue homologations, not to forget the daily and final reports whereby a general evaluation of the events is dispatched back to the CEV and the EBVC. Dirk Decher of Switzerland summed up the main features of the BVIS, i.e. the software that is being used for processing all info relating to CEV Beach Volleyball competitions.
After these theoretical classes, the participants were subdivided into three groups and carried out a simulation of an inspection visit and venue homologation at the venue of the Continental Cup final, being accompanied and supported by an experienced Technical Supervisor or EBVC member.
The outcome of this experience was first discussed in small groups and then reported back via a general session before the seminar was completed by an intervention given by EBVC President and CEV Vice President Renato Arena who discussed the general philosophy adopted by CEV when it comes to the current structure of Beach Volleyball events as well as to the projects that are about to be implemented in the near future.
The seminar was attended by a total of 17 Technical Supervisors representing 15 countries, with Poland and Italy being the sole nations with two delegates on site there in Alanya.
