Northern Marianas Islands host successful Cool Volley Festival
Saipan, Northern Marianas Islands, February 12, 2014 – A Cool Volley Festival was organised in the Northern Marianas Isalands for over 350 students from four elementary schools, two junior high schools and one high school.
The festival put
into practice many of the skill development strategies learned through the "Volleyball
in the school" symposium that was held in December 2013 in Bangkok,
The main goals of the Cool Volley programme are:
To bring volleyball to the entire country. Being a game which costs little to run, Cool Volley can take volleyball to places where the sport has previously not been experienced.
To allow young people to experience the sport of volleyball. Cool Volley, being practiced all over the world, allows young people to learn about the sport and think about possibly pursuing it more in the future.
To create interest and passion for the sport of volleyball. It is hoped that the festivals will encourage students to approach the game of volleyball as a simplified and fun way to practice sport.
