The 2017 European Paralympic Youth Games will be held in October in Italy and this event is extremely important for the future of European Sitting Volleyball.
World ParaVolley has created sitting volleyball rules for youth. In Italy matches are played 4 vs 4 on a smaller court and joint team (mixed countries) are allowed. So far the organiser has not received that many entries. This event will be the only event for youth in Europe where they have the possibility to meet other young players in their age groups and play international matches against them.
ParaVolley Europe aims at having sitting volleyball as part of the European Youth Games programme also in the future. By showing the EPC that there are young players willing to play and that countries are registering them to compete, we can guarantee that sitting volleyball will be kept in the Youth Games’ programme.
We hope that you are able to send a team this year in order to be a part of the ParaVolley Europe Youth development.
Please find once more the whole youth games info package and have a look at what is expected:
The deadline for registration is on 19th May.
