Development of volleyball and beach volleyball in the Cayman Islands as community, interscholastic, and National Team level sports.
Development and instruction of:
- Male and female, junior (Under-10yrs to Under-18yrs) and adult players at the local recreational/developmental level
- Junior and adult Cayman Islands National Team players, to represent the Cayman Islands in international competitions including, but not limited to: NORCECA, Island Games, CAC Games, Commonwealth Games and the Olympic Games.
- Local volleyball coaches, referees and other officials for the purpose of having them officiate local, regional and international indoor and beach volleyball competitions.
CIVF’s primary objective is the development of indoor and beach volleyball as a recreational, interscholastic and national team level sport in the Cayman Islands. A key to the longevity of that plan, is a strong and flourishing youth programme.
- Parents please visit our Parents page and our Calendar of events to see information and dates about upcoming youth camps, clinics and other youth programmes and events.
- On a regular basis CIVF’s Technical Director runs youth clinics to provide instruction for U-10 through U-18 players, and to identify new youth players who will be invited to join CIVF’s Junior Elite programme.
- The CIVF Junior Elite programme serves as a player pipeline for the Cayman Islands national indoor and beach volleyball teams. Players can be invited to join the programme either through a CIVF scouting process or through participation in a CIVF try-out event. The players in the Junior Elite programme receive direct instruction and coaching from the CIVF Technical Director and are developed as “national team pipeline players”.
- To help introduce new youth players to volleyball and to provide them with instruction and opportunities to compete, CIVF requires Sanctioned Clubs to include a youth development programme in their club’s structure
- Through youth camps, clinics and other organized activities, CIVF’s education-and-sport programme is designed to familiarize young Caymanians with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects in school and encourage them to consider STEM careers. CIVF is using this initiative to find new and creative ways to expose young Caymanians to science and technology early in their lives, so they can get excited about it, and become aware of the amazing opportunities both here at home and overseas. Volleyball is a fun, safe, and welcoming sport that we think makes it very effective as a vehicle to attract and work with our youth in order to motivate them in positive directions.
