VIS Seminar begins in Tijuana, Mexico 

TIJUANA, Mexico, September 21, 2015 – The FIVB-Norceca Regional Development Center is the host of a new international course, with the beginning of the Volleyball Information System Seminar (VIS).

The course is directed by international instructor and VIS Officer, Diego Soler, from Argentina, who recently worked as Indoor Volleyball VIS Delegate during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, celebrated at the Maracanazinho Arena.

Most of the attendees, who have some experience as VIS personnel in several international events such as Pan Am Cups, Continental Championships and Age Group World Championships began their preparation in order to be officially certified.

The VIS is a very important tool for statistics in matches and tournaments, as well as a great support for the media, Soler mentioned during the introduction of the seminar aspects.

Since the decade of the 90’s VIS has been the backbone in the exchange of information and at the same time, its structure has served as a reference to the development of stats and information system for other sport disciplines.

“This system has also been useful for the press for their match descriptions and match reports in tournaments of all ages”, Soler remarked.

This has also helped the coaches for their scouting reports and analysis of teams’ performances. The seminar sessions take place at the IT Room located inside the Athletes’ School of the Development Center at the Baja California High Performance Center.

Attendees participate in theoretical sessions as well as in technical expositions by following up real game actions in video projections of World Championships and Olympic Games Matches.
