Where as Sport-S VC missed the NSSF Volleyball League trophy their player Dickens Otim is tipped to walk away with not less than three trophies at the Uganda Volleyball Federation annual dinner Friday.

Otim is contesting the MVP award as well as receiver, attacker, blocker and defender of the year in the men’s category and his consistence for Sport-S during the season gives him clear advantage over the rest.

Together with Vision Volleyball Camp’s Peace Busingye, Otim is tipped to win the NSSF Volleyball League Most Valuable Players accolade at a glamorous dinner at Kati Kati Restaurant.

Going by the awards committee’s statistics based criteria, Otim and Busingye are ranked above their opponents because they have also gathered points in other categories of the contest.

His challengers for the MVP award KAVC’s Daudi Okello and reigning MVP Nemostars’ George Aporu must statistically be ranking below Otim.

Okello was inconsistent for his club as he had to take a break to do school examinations although his return eventually KAVC won the league. Aporo played five games less because his Nemostars team was eliminated in the semifinals.

In the women’s category, Busingye is nominated for the MVP award as well as server, receiver, attacker, blocker and defender of the year. Ndejje's Christine Alupo is lined up for the MVP as well as receiver, blocker and defender of the year.

Busingye and current MVP Irene Adeke, who was more reliable for her team, play for reigning champions Vision Volleyball Camp.

UVF has resolved to give the MVPs sh200000 each while the rest of the winners will pocket sh100000 and trophies courtesy of the league sponsors NSSF for their hard work.

KAVC men and Vision Volleyball Camp women will also be crowned the NSSF Volleyball League Champions 2014 with a trophy and a cash of sh2.6m each.

Sky Volleyball Club men will be crowned the Serie B champions while Vision Volleyball Camp men will receive the Serie C trophies only. Sky and VVC have also been promoted to Serie A and B respectively.
