Constanta, Romania, October 20, 2014 – Romanian champions Tomis Constanta are continuing their search for the stars of the future after unveiling of a new department in the city of Tulcea.

The U13 team has started their preparations for the upcoming season under the guidance of coach Constantin Burungiu. 

Their first competition is scheduled for next weekend in Tulcea, some 130 km away from Constanta, where they will play at an U13 National Championship tournament.

"As we transferred to Tomis players from Tulcea, such as Alexandru Zahar, Eduard Ocunschi and Robert Vologa, all three with good results, we decided to create a department in Tulcea,” Serhan Cadar, Executive Director at Tomis Constanta said. “Our goal is to train future athletes, to make children happy to practice our sport, and to allow them to combine school and volleyball with the best results.”

Cadar wants to continue the successful project they began in 2009 in Constanta, which has resulted with seven age-group titles for Tomis: two in the U19 division (2013 and 2014), three in the U17 (2012, 2013, 2014) and another two in the U15 age group (2012, 2013).

"Tomis is the best training centre in the country,” Alexandru Zahar, member of the Tomis team competing in the 2015 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League said. “The coaches are working according to the latest training methodology and children have the best conditions for practicing.”

Robert Vologa, who was also joined Romania’s champion team for the new season, is also a product of Tomis Constanta’s youth programme.

"I started practicing volleyball at age of eleven in Tulcea and I can say that sport, especially volleyball, is a good thing,” he said. “To obtain good results, children have to work in a team as well.”
