The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is one of many countries where the CEV School Project ‘Play Volleyball – Grow with it’ is helping inspire the next generation of Volleyball players. The coaches involved in running the programme are currently finishing up their work in the country’s third-largest city, Differdange. After the Easter break, a new school will join the project.
A third “Lëtz Volley Academy” took place on Sunday, March 19, when 72 kids could show their skills and learn from the national team coaches. Next up will be the exams in July to pass into the next level.
During the national cup weekend, youth and senior teams competed for the coveted first place. A lot of good games were contested, and a great atmosphere surrounded the event. The Luxembourg Volleyball Federation used the event to deliver a youth coaches workshop, where the federation and the national team coaches shared their ideas on working with youngsters. A total of 22 coaches attended this meeting. It was an interesting exchange of ideas and more such workshop will be planned to further connect the coaches from the different clubs and to give them a platform where to share experiences.
CEV School Project Manager Ben Angelsberg attended the CEV School Project Managers Meeting held at the home of European Volleyball in Luxembourg in mid-March. It was a very interesting two-day meeting with many new ideas brought to the table, which will be tested in Luxembourg too.
