Cape Verde have high hopes for 2013

 
There is tremendous potential for volleyball in Cape Verde, and the country's annual Mass Volley festivals have already introduced hundreds of children to the sport
 
Praia, Cape Verde, January 16, 2013 – In order to further develop both volleyball and beach volleyball in Cape Verde, the country’s National Federation will continue to promote their annual Mass Volley event and regular School Volley initiatives throughout 2013. The federation’s Operational Plan makes clear that Mass Volley has been instrumental in helping increase youth interest in volleyball in Cape Verde.

The federation shared their Operational Plan for 2013 and goals for the year with the FIVB Technical & Development Department earlier this week.

Cape Verde’s goals for 2013 are to facilitate the practice of volleyball through training and competitions; to promote the image of volleyball in the country by encouraging press to cover more programmes and competitions; and to create a website promoting national competitions.

Four National Championships are going to be held this year, starting with a double-gender beach volleyball youth national championship in April. In July there will be a men’s national volleyball championship and a women’s national volleyball championship, and in August a beach volleyball senior national championship for both genders will be staged.

Cape Verde will also participate in International Competitions, including qualifications for the Men’s and Women’s Volleyball World Championship 2014 in May and October, the Lusophony Games in November and the Continental Volleyball Circuit. The country has also expressed interest in hosting three FIVB courses this year: a VCP beach volleyball grassroots course, a VCP Refereeing course, or a Technical Seminar on Data Volley.
