Successful Cool Volley Festival in St. Croix, Virgin Islands
St Croix, Virgin Islands, May 10, 2013 - The Virgin Islands
Volleyball Federation (VIVF) with significant support from the
International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) and the North
American, Central American and Caribbean Volleyball
Confederation (NORCECA), partnered with the Virgin Islands
National Guard, Virgin Islands Sports, Parks and Recreation and
the Virgin Islands Department of Labor to host a Cool Volley
Festival at the St. Croix Educational Complex High School
Football Field, where some 15 schools participated in the first
ever activity of this kind.
This program is part of the Federation's strategy to enhance the
game of volleyball for school children between the 6-15 years of
age. The Cool Volley Festival was well attended as some 125
children from 1st through 10th grade showed up in force to enjoy
a day of fun and activity.
Lucille Hobson, president of the Virgin Islands Volleyball
Federation said the goals of the federation were met as they
displayed the important tangibles such as teamwork and
“From the number of beaming faces and positive comments from
teachers and parents who wanted to know if we would be doing it
again next week, it was more than evident that Cool Volley is
the wave of the future in school sports and volleyball
development,” she said.
