Marte Hoffiz praises dedication of NORCECA Family
Dear Norceca Presidents and Friends;
As we enter the final days of 2018, it is source of satisfaction
and happiness to look back and appreciate everything we have
achieved in the past twelve months with the hard work and
dedication from all the members of the NORCECA family.
Volleyball and Beach Volleyball of our Confederation continued
to grow in both quality and quantity and consequently gaining in
the public appeal of the sport community.
Our two major annual events, the Pan American Cups held in the
Dominican Republic and Mexico, delighted thousands of fans in
Santo Domingo and Veracruz watching the game at its highest
level, in a year when we celebrated the Central American and
Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Colombia.
A record of twelve national teams from NORCECA – five men and
seven women took part in the FIVB World Championships in Italy,
Bulgaria and Japan, thus sending a strong message of the
progress attained by our teams in both genders.
I feel particularly proud of the debut of Trinidad and Tobago in
the women’s event as it capped a steady work of consistent
improvement which shows that success is not an accident but the
result of perseverance.
I am convinced that we are headed in the right direction and
there are many reasons to face the future with indomitable
spirit and optimism if we maintain the same devotion and dreams.
Many thanks for your support as I wish for each one of you and
your families a wonderful Christmas season and a promising New
Cristobal Marte Hoffiz
