Southend Volleyball Club are currently hosting one of the very famous training camps of Scuola di Pallavolo – Anderlini of Modena, Italy, here in Malta.

With more than 1000 registered players aged between 3 and 18 years of age, Scuola di Pallavolo Anderlini is one of the biggest and best volleyball schools in Europe. The results obtained over the past 15 years, not only in the volleyball scene but also on a social level in the Emilia Romagna region, are second to none. More than 100 coaches offer their professional services to give an opportunity to all kids in the region to experience a great sport. It is in fact in Modena that Italian volleyball has seen its best years through the legendary Panini Modena with one of the star players being Rodolfo Giovenzana, later Founder and President of Scuola di Pallavolo Anderlini.

The partnership between Southend Volleyball and Scuola di Pallavolo has now entered its third year, with exchanges for directors, coaches and players happening on a regular basis.

These exchanges have been vital for the start of various initiatives on the Island, that started off last year with a Mini-Volley Coaching Course, attended by over 40 coaches, as well as a Sport Summer School last Summer, the first of its kind in Malta, directed by an Italian coach provided by Scuola di Pallavolo Anderlini.

The English & Volley Camp will be a great opportunity for all those Italian players, aged between 12 and 15 years, who want to combine the learning of the English language and the fun and expertise in the volleyball area by Scuola di Pallavolo Anderlini. Besides all this, during their stay the 30 players joining the Scuola di Pallavolo delegation will also have the opportunity to visit various Maltese sites of interest the likes of Valletta and Mdina as well as a whole day trip to Gozo.

This is no doubt a very important feat for Southend Volleyball Club and Maltese volleyball in general, in a quest to boost the local youth volleyball scene.
