There will be also time for a lot of fun with a visit to the local cinema, occasions to play social games and meetings with Tine’s teammates and other sports friends.
“When I was in primary school, I didn’t have the opportunity to practice indoor volleyball in any summer camp. Since I know how much it would have meant to me having the possibility to play the sport that I love most also during holidays, I decided to offer these opportunity to young players. I am sure that we will have fun at the Camp, it will be a perfect occasion to meet new friends and among all we will all end these holidays richer for new experience and skills.” (Tine Urnaut)
