The Friendship Association Volleyball Championship has come to an end. This would not have been possible without the large number of volunteers and their hard work. In this final report, we thank the volunteers. In the game, there were 36 students enrolled to volunteer. After training, they assumed the role(s) of scorekeeper, linesmen, etc. In two days of intensive long competitions, most student volunteer were highly responsible and professional to the end, which left everyone with a positive impression.
Among these student volunteers, most were teenagers. They conducted filmed interviews, developed their own organizational schemes, made recording sheets and directed all valuable information to do with the volleyball tournament to the responsible personnel. The group was primarily composed by young people aged 15-17. Although they were young, they carried themselves with a high degree of professionalism. In the two days of filming, they interviewed a total of 30 people, and in many ways left a valuable recording of the event.
