Volleyball Seminar for Physical Education Teachers opens in Baja California

The Seminar is composed of theoretical and practical sessions
Tijuana, Mexico, March 16 2014 – The FIVB International Seminar for Physical Education Teachers was formally opened at the NORCECA-FIVB Development Center in Baja California.

“This is the first course officially hosted at our brand new facilities and we expect this can be a great experience for all the students,” said FIVB Executive Vice President and NORCECA First Vice President, Saul Castro Verdugo, who declared the inauguration of the seminar.

FIVB Instructor, Tony Westman was present as well as Baja California State Volleyball Association President, Alberto Arreola Sanchez, and Baja California State Physical Education Coordinator, Victor Luna Renteria.

“Working together with NORCECA, FIVB, the Baja California Sports Institute and the State Educational System, I think we can make a big difference,” remarked Luna Rentería.

For Westman, the approach to Physical Educators is a first great step in the spread of volleyball.

“You as physical education teachers are the first faces seen by boys and girls when they get in contact with sports, that first contact is a key role in the development of volleyball,” he said.

The Seminar is composed of theoretical and practical sessions. The first ones were taken on Saturday and Sunday with some warm ups and format drills such as “Smash ball,” “Volley 2000,” “Cool Volley” and “Kids Volley.

These models of competitions have been used by national federations such as Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden, as an effort to make the game more attractive for beginners especially in childhood, with progressive levels and skills. The course concludes Tuesday.
