TIJUANA, México, October 1 2013.- The NORCECA development model has become an important reference for other volleyball continental confederations, stated Cristobal Marte Hoffiz.

The North, Central American and Caribbean Confederation President and FIVB First Executive Vicepresident remarked the example shown by the continental governing body during the Opening Ceremony of the International Defense and Reception course that takes place at the Baja California High Performance Center.

"The Asian Confederation has shown a special interest in how We work here in Norceca, and their top officers are expected to visit our headquarters in Santo Domingo in a few days," said Marte Hoffiz before declaring the seminar formally inaugurated.

"Actually We have a lot of our countries in development in the Caribbean area", He said. "They do a great sacrifice to come here and prepare, but there are already good examples of their achievements by getting good continental ranking positions, like We could see it at the last Continental Championships in Omaha and Canada."

That is why international seminars are so important for the confederation members. At the opening ceremony, Baja California Sports Institute Director, Saul Castro Verdugo was present as well as the President of the Baja California Volleyball Association and also FIVB and Norceca member, Alberto Arreola and the President of the Norceca VIS Commission, Judith Sandino.

The Baja California Sports Director welcomed the attendants from Belice, Dominica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Saint Kitts and Nevis as well as Saint Vincent and Granadines.

This course is given by FIVB instructor, Juan Cartagena, from Puerto Rico, who was also at the Opening Ceremony along with FIVB Development Center in Santo Domingo, Lisandra Ramírez.

The seminar is composed of theoretical and practical sessions. Attendants count on with all the material available for their training and classes and activities conclude on Friday October 4th, beforte the beginning of FIVB Women's U23 World Championship Open.
