VOLLEYBALL SCHOOL – PRESENTATION IN THE BASIC SCHOOLS OF THE CITY OF UMAG
Today 13.09.2018. MOK UMAG-CPM UMAGO (men’s volleyball club) together with the OK UMAG-CP UMAGO (women’s volleyball club), and in collaboration with the Italian school SEI Galileo Galilei, made a volleyball presentation as a sport, for the first fourth grade.
MOK Umag-CPM Umag for the fourth consecutive year, holds a volleyball presentation twice a year in primary schools in Umag, as foreseen in the club’s annual work programs. During the presentation, the basics of the technique of this sport were shown, with lots of fun and games. The aim of the presentation is to bring this sport closer to our youngsters, since in the last 15 years this sport has become increasingly involved in the sports family of the city of Umag. Except for the women’s volleyball club OK Umag-CP Umag, in our city for 7 years the male volleyball club MOK UMAG-CPM UMAGO is active too, which together already have more than 160 members of all ages. These presentations have the task of pedagogical work with the younger generations, because in today’s highly developed society, sport has become a categorical imperative, which has a direct impact on the social, economic and community health profile. This promotion confirms the efforts of Umag, after the appointment by the European Commission, the European capital of sport for 2018, to allow all its citizens to practice sport in order to build a healthy lifestyle and athletic development.
The presentation was conducted by our expert coach (MOK UMAG coach), Mr. Dragan Salapura, together with the former Croatian player and captain, Ivica Radočaj (coach of the OK UMAG-CPM UMAGO) in the presence of lower grade teachers of the schools.
Thanks to this, we would like to thank the principal of SEI Galileo Galilei, Mr. Arden Sirotić, and the teachers who have been available (as every year) to help this initiative.
