“Be Part of Me” Program in Costa Rica



SAN JOSE, Costa Rica, August 28, 2015 – If you are in love with volleyball and would like to be part of the development of our sport, we kindly invite you to be one of the developers of the Costa Rican Volleyball Federation and the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) within the program “Volleyball Your Way Festivals” in collaboration with the Costa Rican Sport and Recreation Institute, the Ministry of Sport and Public Education and the National Olympic Committee.


To be part of the working team you must have the desire to serve, teach the volleyball basic techniques to kids and youngsters. If you are a qualified technician or physical education teacher, we invite you to be part of our staff.


The goal of this program if to develop volleyball and convert it into a mass sport aiming to project and scout players for our present and future national teams.


The start of the program took place on July 18 from Liberia Guanacaste with a group of “guanacastecos” avid to develop volleyball with a clinic conducted by Henry Rodriguez and then an active session with a group of kids from the region at the court adjacent to the Edgardo Baltodano Stadium to put in practice the items of the theoretical session.


For Edgar Alvarado Ardón, president of the Federation, the fact of starting to develop the talent at a young age is an important factor which can contribute to keep the kids and the youngsters away from violence and drugs and to impulse their growth in the professional part.


Arelis Nuñez, former player and now coach for the National Games of Guacimo, said volleyball was the tool that gave her what she is today. “I was able to travel out of the country because of volleyball and I got my professional degree because volleyball opened the doors to a scholarship to study which was something difficult in my financial conditions.”


For Henry Rodríguez, member of the Costa Rican Federation and leader of the program to develop our new prospects, commented: “We need to work on training from the grassroot level the players for our teams and national selections. This is only the beginning for the future selections from the program 2025.”


That’s the reason we make a call to all those technicians and professors with proper knowledge who want to collaborate with the development of the new volleyball stars to join our team and contact to tesorero@fecovol.com for further information.
