During the first day, the attendees and their mentors paid a visit to the local City Hall, thus meeting with Deputy Mayor, Mr Dan Tarcea, who read out a warm welcome message from the Lord Mayor, Mr Emil Boc. The city of Cluj-Napoca has a very close connection with the Volleyball family – as last year it did play host, doing so with much success, to matches scheduled for the 2021 edition of CEV EuroVolley Women.
In the evening, a special meeting addressed to Romania’s international Volleyball referees took place, with Mrs Bjelic enjoying this opportunity to share the ERC philosophy as well as long-term strategy developed to grow and improve the quality of Volleyball refereeing in Europe.
During the second day of the seminar opened by the Vice Mayor of Cluj-Napoca, Mrs Emese Olah, Mrs Bjelic and Mr Mokry presented interesting materials dealing with what implies to be officiating matches at top-level competitions before Saturday’s programme ended with a theoretical test.
The seminar finished on Sunday with a session including a number of video materials and discussions about technical aspects reviewed ahead of the upcoming Volleyball season.
