NORCECA/FIVB Development Center wraps up 2014 activities

Participants in the Defense, Reception and Libero Seminar in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, November 29, 2014 – The NORCECA/FIVB Regional Development Center in the Dominican Republic concluded its activities in 2014 with the closing ceremony of the Reception, Defense and Libero International Seminar on Friday.

A total of 52 participants hailing from Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Haiti and Dominican Republic received their certificates presented by Nelson Ramirez, director of the development center and Juan Cartagena, the FIVB Instructor from Puerto Rico, who was the director of the seminar.

Jose Luis Suero, who represented the Dominican Republic Ministry of Sports and Recreation and Vicente Paniagua, who assisted Cartagena during the four-day seminar, also attended the ceremony.

Cartagena commented on the importance of the seminar for the development and training of the players, highlighting the defense as a key component of the technical capacity of the teams.

“Defense in volleyball plays a key role,” Cartagena said. “There is the tendency to put a lot of emphasis in offense and frequently coaches forget the importance of defense. We need to have complete players.”

Ramirez expressed his satisfaction for the number of events organized by the development center not only in Dominican Republic but also in several other countries within NORCECA Confederation.

“I really appreciate the support from NORCECA and the Technical Department of FIVB in 2014 and now we prepare for another year full of activities as we continue to fulfill the program of our development plan, especially for the National Federations in the category I and II,” Ramirez said.
