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. Such is the scale and relevance of this action that the European Commission is providing funding through their Erasmus+ programme, a truly unprecedented feat in European Volleyball history.
"The School Project has been a fantastic experience in every possible way. We have been able to help develop Kidsvolley in schools and clubs for the benefit of children, teachers and coaches across the country."

"As a parent and ex Volleyball player, I feel extremely privileged that I can convey the message of Volleyball to younger generations. The CEV School Project will allow us to introduce more children to our lovely sport."

"In Ireland we aim to recruit 50 new schools to play Volleyball. The programme includes teacher training, brand new equipment for schools, on-line resources. We also deliver wider educational opportunities and run a national schools finals."
