Riga, Latvia, February 3, 2017. The General Assembly of the Latvian Volleyball Federation (LVF) took place on Friday, February 3 in Riga with the election of the President and of the members of the Board of Administration being the main items on the agenda. Mr Atis Sausnitis was eventually re-elected as LVF President for another four-year term.

The LVF Board of Administration includes the following members:

-    Mr Maris Pekalis – Vice President and CEV Vice President
-    Mr Elmars Rudovics – State Border Guard
-    Mr Vadim Yeroshenko – Riga City Council Member

-    Mr Boriss Kolcins – Volleyball expert, coach
-    Mr Aivis Mirbahs – Latvian National Armed Forces  
-    Mr Andris Ravins – Chairman of the Jelgava City Council

The General Assembly reviewed the work done this past year as well as the main problems that Latvia’s Volleyball family has been dealing with while also defining the strategic goals for the next four years.

Following his re-election, Mr Sausnitis commented: “I have positive feelings about today. We have listened to some criticisms, have made up our mind about the next steps in our work and elected the members of the Board of Administration. The last few years have been quite difficult and challenging for our Volleyball family. We have nice and sad moments to remember, but together we have been doing a great job, making sure that Volleyball continues to grow in our country.”

“We indeed see that more and more students are playing Volleyball at school,” Sausnitis continued. “Latvia’s young Volleyball and Beach Volleyball players have achieved great results at their respective age-group European Championships. We have also developed a close cooperation with many City Councils. This year is especially important for us since we will be hosting the CEV Beach Volleyball European Championship Final in Jurmala, and this is one of the most high-profile events in Europe. As far as Volleyball is concerned, our teams have been participating in many international competitions abroad and we have hosted a number of tournaments here in Latvia as well.”

As for the next four years, Mr Sausnitis identified a number of key goals: Latvia should make it to the Final Round of the European Championships, and qualify not only men’s but also women’s teams for the Beach Volleyball competition of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. “We are also confident that our youth and junior national teams will be achieving good results,” Mr Sausnitis said, “since we have already been close to achieving this goal.”
