Many happy faces at Faroese school tournament finals!
News from the National Federations

Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, March 27, 2019. There has been a lot of Volleyball activity in the Faroe Islands lately, especially as the Faroese Volleyball Federation (FBF) have just completed their championships for players under the age of 12. As many as 96 teams participated in the tournament, which is an all-time record and such mass participation made the event a great experience for players and coaches alike.

The children received many trophies and souvenirs and, as usual, coaches were the recipients of awards as well. The only minus was the weather. A minor hurricane prevented the club B71 from Sandoy from participating. Otherwise, the event took place in the best possible way and with very well played Kidsvolley, which bodes well for the future of Faroese Volleyball as a whole.

Earlier this week, on Monday and Tuesday it was the turn of school competitions for pupils from the third and fourth grades. After a series of 11 preliminary tournaments held across all the 18 islands in the Atlantic, the best teams came together for the finals played in Tórshavn on as many as 10 courts in Høllin á Halsi. Kollafjarðar Skúli won the competition for third-grade pupils, followed by Skála Skúli and Sørvágs Skúli in second and third place, respectively. Toftir Skúli, Gøtu Skúli and Sørvágs Skúli composed the top three of the competition for fourth graders.

An amazing 1,360 children from third and fourth grade classes (accounting for 96% of all pupils in those grades) participated in Volleyball education programmes and school tournaments this year. At the same time, all schools received balls and nets from CEV Schools Project.
