Cool Volley Programme in Sri Lanka

There were many spectators at the event, which bodes well for the development of volleyball in the Kurunegala District
Colombo, Sri Lanka, February 27, 2013 – The Sri Lanka Volleyball Federation launched its 2013 development season with a Cool Volley Programme in Kurunegala, situated in the north western province of Sri Lanka.

This event attracted a good turnout of girls and boys between the ages of 12 and 14 who were coached by 8 professionals including the national coach. Participants were taught volleyball basics and every effort was made to develop their interest in the sport. Volleyballs, nets and mini score boards were distributed to the schools of the participating children.
“It is a reasonable achievement as the opening and closing ceremonies were as colourful as the previous Cool Volley Programme, which was held at the Badulla Indoor Volleyball Training Courts,” said Susil Ranasinghe, General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Volleyball Federation  
A referees seminar was also organised to coincide with the opening of a new volleyball court.
