Back in mid-November, the Volleyball club Kosken Kaiku visited three small countryside schools for three consecutive days, thus introducing the Volleyball game to as many as 422 elementary school students. The aim of this action is to recruit new players for the club’s own activities. All of the students were able to join an hour-long school Volleyball session.
All visits followed the same formula and programme. The kids initially played “Keep your side clean”, by throwing and hitting the balls under and over the net to the other side - using different techniques to do so.
After splitting the children into three smaller groups, they all went through three main action points:
At the end of each such session, the children played the easiest School Volleyball Games – “Collect catches” or “Collect overhead passes” with or without catch.
The instructors were three young players from Kosken Kaiku, accompanied by an adult supervisor from the club for every session. The schools involved in this run of activities are Kuusjoen koulu in Salo/Kuusjoki, Talolan koulu in Koski and Marttilan koulu in Marttila.
