Cool Volley attracts new volleyball players in Qatar


18 Mar 2014
Doha, Qatar: The Qatar Volleyball Association held a Cool Volley event at the Al Arabi Club in Doha with the aim of encouraging young local children to take up volleyball. Cool Volley was an opportunity for children to enjoy the sport, make new friends, learn new skills, acquire habits of self-discipline, learn team work, compete fairly and invest their free time into healthy activities.

The event was well organised with matches held on 10 courts that were temporarily set up on the Al Arabi Club’s football pitch.

Over 300 children aged between 8 and 11 took part, representing 10 different clubs from around the country. Also in attendance were the organisers, sponsors and coaches, including the QVA President and QVA board members.  

The event, held on March 1, received a great deal of coverage in the local newspapers and was covered in Arabic and English on local TV channels.

Cool Volley is a proactive development tool aimed at assisting National Federations to recruit youth through their projects at a national level.
