Cool Volley Festival held in St. Kitts and Nevis


St Kitts and Nevis, February 3, 2012 – More than 100 kids aged 10-12 took part in the first “Cool Volley Festival” in St. Kitts and Nevis held last January with very positive results, according to national federation president Glenn Quinlan.


The St. Kitts and Nevis program involved 10 of the 21 primary schools in the sister islands and had the assistance of the Ministry of Education and the Department of Sports with the transportation where necessary.


Kids were divided in teams of 10 members, each one took part in the matches with the sets played up to 15 points and lasted around seven minutes.


“The response was very positive and the schools that didn’t take part would like an opportunity to participate in future programs,” Quinlan said.


“The federation is now following up with all primary schools and hopes to present an expanded program in the future,” he added.


The organization process included the contact with the schools in mid-December and the explanation of the program to them. Volleyball personnel helped in preparing courts and were assisted by national players and Level I and II coaches.
