130,000 pupils involved in school Volleyball campaign run by Finnish Federation
News from the National Federations

Helsinki, Finland, November 6, 2018. The annual school Volleyball campaign broke again all records in Finland. About 130,000 schoolchildren from as many as 562 schools joined the campaign run by the Finnish Volleyball Federation this year. Back in 2017, about 115,000 pupils and 490 schools took part in this very same action.

This time around, the Finnish Volleyball Federation ran their school campaign from October 29 to November 2 and children from across the whole of Finland had fun in school playing Volleyball or learning to play the game during their physical education classes.

All 562 schools involved in the campaign received one Mikasa SKV5 ball from the Federation and the insurance company LähiTapiola, which is sponsoring the action.

The schools could also download a lot of useful material from the web and establish some sort of cooperation with local Volleyball clubs to make the campaign as interesting and entertaining as possible for their respective pupils.



The Finnish Federation produced several learning videos for school Volleyball and published one every day during the campaign week on their YouTube channel as well as on Facebook.
