Play Volleyball, grow with it



The promotion of Volleyball at the grassroots level has become one of the priorities set by the CEV leadership and the implementation of a school project under the slogan ‘Play Volleyball, grow with it’ is pivotal to the achievement of this strategic goal. CEV would like to incorporate the activities of the project, leveraging the existing network of partners by introducing the #HealthyLifestyle4All initiative into the annual calendar of activities. Throughout the school year, the project partners are organizing activities within their local communities involving the local primary schools and their teachers. The activities are having promotional and educational character. Core activities are games and workshops.
