While paying a visit to Cyprus, CEV President Aleksandar Boričić had a high profile meeting with Mr Phivos Zachariades, Adviser to the President of the Republic of Cyprus on Sports (see picture).
President Boričić emphasised the importance CEV is placing in the development of youth sports in Europe and the need for everyone to work together to develop a strategy for that. The CEV President shared his vision to help grow the sport of Volleyball in Cyprus beginning from the grassroots level with the help of the CEV School Project, which includes assistance in terms of provision of balls and equipment, the organisation of coaching seminars and other projects in close collaboration with CEV.
The CEV President portrayed together with the Minister of Education
and Sports of the Republic of Cyprus, Dr Kostas Champiaouris.
The response from everyone the CEV President has spoken to – including the President of the Cyprus Olympic Committee, Dinos Michaelides, and Minister of Education and Sports, Kostas Champiaouris, has been very positive. They all ensured President Boričić that there is already a very good relationship and collaboration between their respective organisations and Cyprus Volleyball and this is certainly going to continue and expand in the future. Volleyball is the second largest sport in Cyprus (behind football) and it is in everyone’s priorities and goals.
President Boričić will remain in Cyprus for a few more days and will have yet another important meeting with the President of the Cyprus Sports Organisation, Mr Andreas Michaelides.
