Technical seminar for Middle Players begins in Baja California
TIJUANA, Mexico, November 10, 2016 - The activities of the
Technical Seminar for Middle Players, directed by Puerto Rican
coach and instructor Juan Cartagena, began officially at the
FIVB-Norceca Regional Development Centre in Baja California.
On behalf of FIVB First Executive Vice President and Norceca
Volleyball Confederation President, Cristobal Marte Hoffiz, and
Development Centre General Director, Saul Castro Verdugo,
Operations Director, Alberto Arreola, welcomed all participants.
National coaches and assistant coaches as well as statisticians
have attended to this course in order to improve their knowledge
in technical and tactical aspects.
"As sport, Volleyball has evolved a lot for the last years. As
an example, there were no liberos in the game and today you have
the choice of playing with two of them," Arreola stated.
"These same kinds of situations happen when you prepare other
players. The working agenda and level of our courses have become
more complex, so it is important to keep you updated," he added.
"The work in our regional centres has become more dynamic. I am
so glad to be here again in this seminar and for me is very
important to exchange our ideas. We hope that we can get the
best from this opportunity," Cartagena remarked.
The theoretical sessions began on Thursday while there are also
some practical ones on court scheduled ahead. The certification
and closing ceremonies are programmed on Sunday, November 13.
