Busy schedule for kids playing Volleyball on Faroe Islands
News from the National Federations

Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, October 27, 2017. Tournaments for children are a very important part of the work done in the Faroe Islands to grow the game among pupils aged from six to 12. Flogbørn is the Faroese name for what many simply describe as ‘Kids Volley’.

Last weekend there was one such a tournament at Suderoy and another one is coming up later this week on the island of Sandoy. All nine Volleyball clubs from the Faroe Islands will participate, thus accounting for as many as 64 Flogbørn teams.

“The Flogbørn tournaments are a very important asset for us in the Faroese Volleyball Federation,” says Vice President Niclas Joensen. “There is the social dimension, which is important, but it’s also very important that the children come out and realise how skilled they have become and see that the things they have worked on since the previous event are beneficial when playing matches.”

This season there will be as many as eight such tournaments in the Faroe Islands, with the ‘big finals’ due to take place in Kollerfjørd near Tórshavn, where more than 100 Flogbørn teams will participate. Apart from the final tournament organised by the Faroese Volleyball Federation, the clubs are responsible for the delivery of all remaining events. This means, that all local clubs have taken responsibility for the development of the sport and ensure that the children can play matches in the villages where they reside with their families.
