For the second year in a row, during the forthcoming summer holidays, the outdoor courts run by SIA “O-SANDS” within the territory of “New Hanza” (Hanzas Street 14a) will host free beach volleyball training for schoolchildren conducted by professional coaches. This project is being implemented with the support of the ABLV Charitable Foundation under the auspices of its programme “Let’s Help Them to Grow Up!”.

“I have always been convinced that, regardless of their family’s financial situation, all kids should be given an equal opportunity to play sports and to pursue an active lifestyle, which is why we offered kids the chance to train for free last year. Thanks to our supporters, we will continue this initiative this year. When we started out last year, the first training sessions were attended by just eight children, but during the winter season this figure rose to 60. Now we cannot accommodate any more kids indoors, but during the summer, we want to offer free training to up to 100 children on our outdoor courts,” reveals Arnis Tunte, Managing Director of SIA “O-SANDS”.

Training sessions on the outdoor courts will be held from 1 June to 31 August, and will take place four times a week: on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11.00-13.00. Kids aged from 9-18 years of age are invited to take part. Previous experience of beach volleyball is not obligatory, because training will be provided for groups with various skill levels.

The head coach will be Atvars Vilde, whose fellow coaches will include other well-known beach volleyball personalities such as Mārtiņš Pļaviņš, Aigars Birzulis, Mārtiņš Krams, Alise Lece and Marta Ozoliņa. We invite you to register to take part early, because the number of available places is limited.

Every child or teenager who attends at least five training sessions will receive an “O-SANDS” beach volleyball shirt.
