La Rioja meeting with FeVA President

Chapadmalal, September 29, 2013 - The President of the Argentine Volleyball Federation (FeVA), Juan Antonio Gutierrez met during the U 18 Argentine Cup with officials of all over the country province volleyball federations. In one of them, he had a long and very positive meeting with Raul Moreno, President of La Rioja Volleyball Federation and Assistant Coach of Dante Alighieri School. The goal: to develop La Rioja Volleyball including all the NOA Region of the country.

The official expressed: "We have been working with volleyball in La Rioja for the last 20 years in different working places. This year I returned to be the President of the local Volleyball Federation with the goal of becoming a strong volleyball place at national level. We have a long volleyball history in the region and that gives us the chance to start with new projects on this goal. FeVA, through out Juan Antonio Gutierrez supports this idea and it is interested that we can become one of the most important venues of the country. We have our dream, expectation and the wish to make this project true".

Moreno was the president of the Province Volleyball Federation 10 years ago and he always kept working with volleyball. Moreno goes on saying: "We plan to work with grass-root athletes, something we do in our club and with the support of 3-4 other clubs that have the same idea. To reorganize our Federation, to change our economy and our legal format and to be in direct relationship with the FeVA and the whole region. To become one of the important venues in the north east of the country and to be present at national activities".

During the Argentine Cups in Chapadmalal, meetings never stop. "The idea of carrying out the last 2013 FeVA Board of Administration meeting in November in La Rioja and see what chances we have to organize there also a course on the same weekend. Another idea is to take one of the National Teams to play there. If we can carry out that idea it would be very positive. It would be to make real one of our dreams and we plan to make it true as soon as possible".
