In September, the Volleyball Federation of Montenegro (OSCG) resumed their work on the Free Volleyball School and EKO Mini Volleyball League programs – which they run in conjunction with the CEV School Project ‘Play Volleyball – Grow with it’.
The OSCG expect the participation of 12 schools from eight municipalities in the north of Montenegro, as well as the involvement of 12 teachers who will work with young boys in the delivery of the Free Volleyball School. The OSCG has planned educational seminars as well. As an indicator of the work that has been accomplished this far, one team featuring the most promising boys will participate in an official youth competition organised by the Volleyball Federation of Montenegro. Additionally, five teachers from the Free Volleyball School project participated in the CEV Coaches Convention 2023 held this past month in Bulgaria.
The seventh season of the EKO Mini Volleyball league will start on October 22, 2023. Nineteen clubs will participate in categories for girls born in 2011/2012, girls born in 2013 and younger, and boys born in 2011 and younger. The OSCG count with over 800 participants, thus continuing the tradition of making this the largest competition for children across all sports organised in the Balkan country.
