In line with their respective CSR programmes to promote healthy living habits, for the second year running, MSV Life and Mapfre Middlesea are supporting the Youth Beachvolle­y Academy set up by Swieqi Phoenix Volleyball. The academy provides the skills necessary for young athletes to play this Olympic sport.

Commenting on the work of the Youth Beachvolle­y Academy, Phoenix Sports Club President Orlando Bonnici stated that this complement­s the successful work being done by the club in indoor volleyball. Swieqi Phoenix Volleyball dominated the youth and junior categories this past season, being crowned national volleyball champions in the Under-14, Under-16, and Under-18 categories.

“The philosophy of Phoenix Sports Club places a strong emphasis on the developmen­t of young athletes in all the sports discipline­s in which we participat­e. In this case we recognised that a growing number of our young indoor volleyball players were developing an interest in beach volleyball, which is a growing sport all over the world. Our profession­al volley- ball coaching staff has developed a programme aimed at developing the skills needed for this sport. And thanks to the support of Mapfre Middlesea and MSV Life, we are now in a position to cater for this activity for the second year runnning”, said Bonnici.

Mr David Curmi, CEO of MSV Life commented “Beach Volley has developed into a high-pro- file, glamorous sport and enjoys great visibility on beaches around the world, including Malta. MSV Life is proud of its role in helping encourage youths to undertake physical activity and to practice this sport.”
