Sierra Leone Volleyball Association (SLVA) on Friday ended its week-long ‘volleyball your way’ nationwide coaches training with a volleyball festival at their beach volleyball facility, Lumley Beach.
A total of 29 participants undertook the week-long coaching training which is aimed at producing the next generation of coaches in the country that also prepared them for an upcoming advanced level coaches training.
The Austrian volleyball instructor added that the goal of the international volleyball federation is to match-up with the other sporting disciplines to become the most popular sports in the world.
Huber also revealed that he is impressed with Sierra Leone’s success in the sport despite all the difficulties the country is going through.
“Sierra Leone has improved greatly despite all the difficulties in the country,” Huber said and advised the newly trained coaches: “I hope you will all go on and teach others including the kids, Use what you know from the training and multiply for the benefit of volleyball in Sierra Leone.”
President of SLVA, Christopher John who congratulated the coaches for enduring the intensive training advised them (the coaches) be ambassadors of the sport.
He said: “This course should be taken seriously because a lot of money had been spent on this project but I have no doubt you will help keep the ball flying in Sierra Leone.”
According to one of the participants, Unisa Kamara, the training course was impressive and timely as new techniques and development like the mini volleyball training were also taught.
