FIVB has supported the course by sending an instructor and equipment
Uganda Volleyball Federation president Sadiq Nasiwu has implored volleyball teachers attending a five-day Federation of International Volleyball (FIVB) teachers' course to take advantage and gain as much knowledge from it.
Nasiwu was speaking to the participants at the start of the clinic at UOC offices on Monday.
The ‘Volleyball Your Way’ methodology course is aimed at empowering teachers who are close to the children, pupils and students with knowledge which they will pass on later.
FIVB has supported the course by sending an instructor, Dennis Bernard and some equipment like balls, nets, t-shirts and magazines
"As UFVB when we reach at this particular point we feel we have done what is required to make sure the course goes ahead and we thank UOC for hosting us".
"This is an opportunity for you to get what is required of you from the instructor; you're the lake take as much water as you like; get as much knowledge from him and transfer it to the young ones," Nasiwu advised.
"This is an opportunity to have attended a course of this nature because it is not cheap; so make the most of it. We want volleyball to be a family sport, that why we want you to start with the kids who will convince their parents and broaden the foundation," Bernard told the participants.
"Make use of the internet to broaden your knowledge and try to set goals which help you achieve your objectives. We have a lot of potential in East Africa because our players are strong so we have to start with you; but this should not be your last course," Bernard stated.
UOC assistant general secretary Dunstan Nsubuga asked the participants to take the training seriously and learn what will go a long way in developing volleyball in the country.
