ParaVolley signs MoU with FIVB
TEHRAN – ParaVolley Asia Oceania Secretary General Hadi Rezaei said that World Para Volley has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with FIVB (International Volleyball Federation) facilitating collaboration between the two organizations with the overall objective to promote volleyball around the world.
The cooperation of two organizations on specific projects will enable both the FIVB and World ParaVolley to boast that volleyball in all of its forms is a sport for all.
World ParaVolley is the independent organization responsible for planning and delivering the sport of ParaVolley for athletes with physical impairments.
“ParaVolley and FIVB have many capacities to collaborate because they have many same goals. I have to say International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Paralympic Committee (IPC) have already started collaboration on various projects and activities in the world,” Rezaei said in an interview with Islamic Republic of Iran Volleyball Federation (IRIVF) website.
“Mr. Davarzani is a member of Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) board of directors and we have asked him to facilitate collaboration between AVC and Asia Oceania,” the Iran sitting volleyball coach added.
“There are so many common goals between sitting volleyball and volleyball and, technically, there is no much difference between coaching in ParaVolley and volleyball and the trainers can come together,” he added.
“Volleyball has a great family including indoor volleyball, beach volleyball, snow volleyball, sitting volleyball and beach ParaVolley. We are looking to see beach ParaVolley in Paralympic 2028. This is our long-term goal,” Rezaei concluded.
