Seminar for young players draws big crowd in Japan

The seminar and clinic are regularly organised during the summer, all over Japan.

Saitama, Japan, July 23, 2013 – A seminar for young players was recently held in Tokorozawa city in Saitama (Japan) and was attended by over 300 high school volleyball players and coaches. The seminar was organised by the Saitama High School Volleyball Organisation (affiliated with the Japan Volleyball Association) and held at the Tokorozawa civic hall.

Over 150 selected high school players and coaches attended the seminar at the Tokorozawa civic hall, one of the FIVB official competition halls in Japan.

At the same time, a refereeing clinic was organised with another 150 high school students in attendance where they were taught proper scoring and line judging skills.

The technical seminar was conducted by FIVB instructor, Tatsuya Adachi of Japan who said, I was very much amazed by the total number of the participants and the size of hall using five volleyball courts. This may be one of the biggest clinics in the world and we need to make our volleyball moving forward and to prepare for 2020.

Similar clinics are currently being organised this September in the Japanese cities of Kyoto, Osaka and Shizuoka.
