CEV announce set-up of reinvigorated Coaches Commission and establishment of Athletes’ Working Group
News from the CEV

Krakow, Poland, September 1, 2017. In an effort to modernise the governance of Europe’s Volleyball family as well as to work closer with two vital stakeholders, CEV President Aleksandar Boričić announced on Friday the re-instatement of the European Coaches Commission (ECOC) as well as the establishment of a CEV Athletes’ Working Group. This move will foster the cooperation with such key actors as well as the involvement of coaches and players in the strategic planning, thus further boosting the growth and development of Volleyball at all levels and across the whole of Europe.

The European Coaches Commission (ECOC) includes the following members:

Philippe BLAIN (FRA) – President
Thomas BRO-RASMUSSEN (DEN) – Secretary
Gert VANDE BROEK (BEL)
Urmas TALI (EST)  
Tuomas SAMMELVUO (FIN)
Sophia PAPADOPOULOU (GRE)
Marco MENCARELLI (ITA)
Casper GROENHUIJZEN (NED)
Ferhat AKBAS (TUR)  

The ECOC blends the experience brought by a number of coaches working with elite teams with the background of others who are heavily involved in the implementation of projects focussing on the grassroots level, thus accounting for a comprehensive portrait of the whole Volleyball family. The ECOC will – inter alia – supervise the drafting and implementation of development projects, help disseminate teaching materials and best practices across Europe, and support National Federations in the delivery of coaching courses, thus establishing a European network involving Volleyball coaches, all equally committed to growing the game at all levels.



The CEV Athletes’ Working Group features the following members:

Samuele PAPI (ITA) – President
Maja OGNJENOVIC (SRB) – Secretary
Lyubomir GANEV (BUL)
Aleksandrs SAMOILOVS (LAT)
Lonneke SLÖETJES (NED)
Pawel ZAGUMNY (POL)
Ekaterina GAMOVA (RUS)
Neslihan DEMIR GÜLER (TUR)

The Working Group includes a number of former elite athletes – multiple medallists from European and World Championships as well as from the Olympic Games – plus some of the current major stars of the game. Following the establishment of this opinion-making and advisory body, the members of the Athletes’ Working Group will work closely together to represent the views of the athletes and make their voice heard within the CEV, therefore bringing the players closer to the decision-making process as well as to the institutional life of the European Volleyball Confederation. They will also help bring Volleyball closer to young people, taking an active role as ambassadors to the CEV’s “Volleyball at School” project.
