Buenos Aires, Argentina, January 10, 2011 - The project “Training Centre ENARD FeVA 2011” was created under the main goal of finding volleyball players with enough talent to be part of the grass-root National teams and in the future, belong to the Seniors' Teams at international competitions.

Therefore six annual events took place in different parts of the country to broadcast the project. The concentrations, that took place at different provinces generated on young athletes the wish to belong again to national wide ranges as an important fact in their lives.

The events were carried out at the following cities:

· Villa María, Córdoba (Middle Area)
· San Miguel de Tucumán, Tucumán (North West Area)
· Paraná, Entre Ríos (North East Area)

Each and every of the concentrations lasted between three to four days including hosting, food and transportation for each athlete and coaching member added to the necessary facilities to train.

A total of 62 players of 16 different provinces were trained and supervised and from them, Miguel Liand, Franco Ramonda and Franco Molina are part of the today's Boys' Youth Team that takes part at the ACLAV A2 upgrading Seniors' Men League. Some of the players also took part of the U Youth team that won the Silver Medal at the first U Youth South American Championship in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

After each concentration ended each player received, together with their coaches and trainers a complete report including the improvement of the same. Each player had to advise afterwards every 21 days their work according to the plan presented to them, giving details on how they followed the same and where they did the work to be done.

To improve the communications between the players, coaches and the heading coach team a close place at Facebook named “Training Centre 2011 ENARD” was created.

“For me it was the first experience as part of the National teams and I loved to be part of it. I learnt a lot during those three days and I returned home with the idea to keep improving so that I can be summon in the future again” expressed one of the many volleyball players, Andrés Daniluk of Club Bella Vista.

“It is an outstanding project that helps the grass-root movement among the youngest so that they have chances of belonging to our national teams one day” pointed out Jorge Gamarra, CEF coach in Paso de los Libres, Corrientes.
