NORCECA works to spread the beach volleyball seed

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic, February 8, 2021 - NORCECA will concentrate its efforts on the development of beach volleyball as a way to expand the seed of this growing discipline mainly in the many islands that are part of the Caribbean and the Eastern Caribbean, two of the most important development zones of the confederation.

Under the slogan "The Gold is in the Sand", the NORCECA Confederation is currently working on a program aimed at local authorities and potential sponsors in order to encourage the practice of this discipline that is more affordable in terms of economic and human resources.

The report is included in the activity report presented by the president of NORCECA, Cristóbal Marte Hoffiz, during the 37th FIVB World Congress that was held virtually on February 5, 6 and 7.

Likewise, Marte Hoffiz highlighted the work being done to bring the sport closer to fans through the broadcasts of its events on television by subscription, which at the same time will generate income to pay for development programs in the youth and minors categories.

At the same time, the president of NORCECA highlighted the efforts being carried out to increase the practice of volleyball at a tender age, which has involved government sports authorities and Olympic committees in order to bring the sport to schools.

He also reported how NORCECA countries such as the United States, Canada and Mexico are open to the possibility of organizing FIVB volleyball and beach volleyball events due to their capacity and resources along with the popularity of those disciplines in many regions of those nations. .

As an example of volleyball growth due to the quality of its national teams, Marte Hoffiz cited the birth of the National League in the Dominican Republic with very good results in the first two years of its operation.
