2020 CEV Coaches Convention - POSTPONED TO 2021

For the second year in a row, the CEV is organising its Coaches Convention expecting more than a hundred coaches and teachers from the federations enrolled in the School Project and others with similar activities.

This year, the CEV expanded across the European borders by inviting all other Volleyball Confederations to send their peers.


Much to our regret, witnessing the impact and the uncertainty that the coronavirus pandemic is causing, the current situation and the strict measures taken by National Authorities to curb the spread of the novel virus have compelled the CEV to postpone the 2020 edition of the Coaches Convention due to take place on 12-14 June at Kranjska Gora (SLO) until June 2021.

We would like to thank all the coaches and the teachers that have registered to attend this year and we look forward to receiving your registration next year again! The place of the event will remain the same. We will be closely monitoring the situation and provide you with updates as soon as we have all the necessary information.

Staying together while being apart, we will come out of these challenging times better, stronger and wiser.

We thank you for your understanding and we sincerely wish you and your loved ones to stay healthy and safe.

"The 2019 Coaches Convention is further proof of the CEV leadership’s drive to enhance the quality of Volleyball at the grassroots level. The main topic is entry level of Volleyball through adapted games, looking at how to make the transition from modified games to regular Volleyball - a challenge for all working at this critical level."

Thomas Bro-Rasmussen
Secretary of the European Coaches Commission


The CEV and the Volleyball Federation of Slovenia (OZS) hosted a historic Coaches Convention targeting coaches and physical education teachers from across Europe.  In the end 96 attendees from 26 countries attended the three day event held from 21-23 June 2019.

The main theme of the event consisted of discussing and sharing ideas on how to best develop and grow Volleyball in Europe with the younger generations. The programme featured theoretical and practical parts, with renowned coaches who have spent the majority of their careers working with young Volleyball talents helping with the delivery.

NFs already implementing the CEV School Project along with any NFs that will soon join the initiative, had the chance to select coaches and teachers that were working on the implementation of the project in their countries to attend the convention and share learnings with other like minded people, as well as many world leaders in this area.
