Starting in December and ending with a match in Februrary there were volleyball trainings taking place once a week for grades 10+, boys and girls, which I organized as my CAS project. In the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the trainings we strengthened our knowledge of the different volleyball techniques and improved our skills practically in the important aspects of the game, such as serving, 3-step attack and blocking. The players were at different levels of playing and general knowledge of the game, but towards the end we were all on a generally equal level, which was a success. In February there was a mini-match between our little volleyball team against students from a volleyball team from the lower classes. Even though there was a slight age difference, the other team has had more experience in volleyball than our team did, which equalized our levels. Even though our team lost with a tight score, I was proud of our team, as I really could see the improvement in their skills as well as teamwork. Both teams enjoyed the evening, as it was a very amicable and team-spirited atmosphere and a successful project in my opinion.

Thank you very much to those who participated in the project and were enthusiastic to learn throughout the trainings, as that made the project entertaining and definitely worth writing about. I am glad to have shared my volleyball experience with you and I hope you continue improving at volleyball and maybe even continue organizing trainings yourselves!
