ONGWEDIVA, 17 APR – Namibian Volleyball Federation (NVF), in conjunction with the African Volleyball Confederation, will host a national referee course in Windhoek from Friday to Tuesday next week.
NVF President, Dux Imbuwa on Monday told Nampa the training will be held at the Israel Patrick Iyambo Police College in the capital under the auspices of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB).
“The course will be facilitated by FIVB accredited instructor, Waleed Kabel, from Egypt,” stated Imbuwa, adding that it will be attended by 29 participants and 12 observers from different regions of Namibia.
The participants will be from all regional volleyball associations.
Participants, who will be certified on successful completion of the course, will stand a chance to become international candidate referees in the next three years.
Namibia last held a similar course in 2010.
“The passing rate was not impressive. As a result, Namibia failed to produce an international candidate for the past years,” said the NVF leader.
Ministry of Sport, Youth and National Service Permanent Secretary, Emma Kantema-Gaomas is expected to officially open the event on Saturday.
