THE FIVB (Federation Internationale De Volleyball) starts its Volleyball Cooperation Program (VCP) discussing a beach volleyball course on Monday until July 10 (Friday) at the First Asia Institute of Technology and Humanities (FAITH) in Tanauan, Batangas.
Philippine Volleyball Federation PVF President Pedro Mendoza and Secretary-General Otie Camangian said the VCP beach volleyball course will be presided by FIVB instructor Yaniv Noyman of Israel to promote the event which is now played all over the world.
“FIVB is very aware that beach volleyball is very popular in the Philippines so the world governing body sent us an expert that would tell us more about beach volley,” said Mendoza, noting that the VCP is open to everyone.
Mendoza said that the VCP course is a great boost to PVF’s beach volleyball program that could also improve the country’s chances of qualifying to the 2012 Olympics or topping overseas events like the Southeast Asian Games, Asian Games and World Championship, among others.
Camangian said that there are less than 50 coaches and players all over the country are expected to attend the five-day beach volley course supported by FAITH President Saturnino Belen.
In other developments, the PVF board has decided to appoint businessman Gener Dungo as deputy secretary general according to Camangian.
