Lausanne, July 7, 2015 – Egypt’s volleyball coaches developed their skills when the Egyptian Volleyball Federation hosted a level three coaching course over a week in June.
The course was made up of 20 attendees from across three different countries and led by FIVB coaching instructors Jivko Pavlov Jetchev from Bulgaria and Dr. Miloslav Ejem from the Czech Republic. It was the first in Africa to be organised by a national federation and took place at the National Indoor Stadium in Cairo.
The course was the latest in a long line of coaching courses that the Egyptian Volleyball Federation has organised this year; so far they have hosted 120, all from their own funds. The aim is to strengthen the EVBF coaching resources to ultimately help their national and club teams enjoy greater success by adding further depth to their coaching resources.
The EVBF was one of the founding members of the FIVB in 1947 and since then Egyptian coaches have achieved great success internationally.
Their national teams are also progressing well and this year the men’s team qualified for the Group Three final four of the FIVB Volleyball World League. Their possible successors played a key role in the course, with the men’s U19 team helping out with the practical demonstrations.
