A Volleyball Training Program for the surrounding villages of the Auroville bioregion was initiated in October 2015 by AVSRC.  Our volleyball coach, Mr. Senthil prepared a volleyball training program for the 8 villages surrounding Auroville (Kottakarai, Irumbai, Annainagar, Bommailarpalayam, Periyamudhaliarchavadi, Kuilapalayam, Edayanchavady and Kottkupam).  Mr. Senthil goes to the villages in the mornings and evenings to train and to prepare the youth for any upcoming tournaments in the region.  Volleyball trainings are given to children as well as to young adults, who want to play volleyball and improve their skills.  This program is a big success, because there are many young people participating in it.  More and more clubs from the villages are requesting to be part of this program.    AVSRC is happy to see the volleyball training program progressively growing and it acknowledges the positive impact on the surrounding villages through this program.
