Activities run in conjunction with the CEV School Project ‘Play Volleyball – Grow with it’ have resumed in North Macedonia with a lot of enthusiasm and happiness visible on the children’s faces.
This past September 22, the very first volleyball class of this school year was run at the primary school Kiril and Metodij in Zletovo, namely at the Ilinden 1903 sports hall, with participation of more than 20 children aged 9-11. They all performed exercises designed to make sure they would learn how to pass the ball over a net and worked on the development of basic motor skills as well.
Two days later, at the Sofia Petrovska sports hall in Probishtip, a meeting was held with more than 30 children from the Brača Miladinovci primary school, who all looked incredibly excited for the start of the new school year and especially of the volleyball classes.
Both these events were held in cooperation with the volleyball club Vesna Probishtip, which for years has been regarded as a leading force in domestic youth competitions.
Later in the month of September, the Park sports hall in Strumica welcomed the first volleyball class of the school year as well, with the participation of more than 40 children, who had the opportunity to make friends while playing Volleyball and having their own share of fun. The children ranged in age from seven to nine years old and their engagement shows how much they enjoy learning more about the volleyball game. This activity was supported by the Nakovski volleyball club.
“I hope that this school year will continue with the same enthusiasm on the part of the clubs and primary schools and for us it will be a great way to nurture new and young volleyball talents,” said Project Manager Sanja Nikcevic.
