St. Maarten makes bold steps in volleyball development
Philipsburg, Sint Maarten, July 24, 2013 - The Volleyball Association of Dutch Sint Maarten conducted a month long
programme to help develop beach volleyball and encourage the growth of
volleyball in schools.
Until now, athletes from Sint Maarten who have represented the country in these championships, have either been too old to have a sustainable career in the sport or live outside the country.
"The country needs to
start participating in NORCECA Beach Volleyball Championships urgently.
Non-participation in these tournaments makes the sport unattractive. One way of
improving its attractiveness is to use volleyball as entertainment,"
explains Coach Joao Carlos Moraes de Campos.
