SUVA Volleyball Association (SVA) will start running series of clinics to help its affiliated club members to improve on their skills level.
With the inclusion of new teams in their weekly competition, the association wants to breach the level of competition with regular clubs.
SVA technical adviser Iliesa Raketekete said they would start their clinic with the Lami-based Qauia club this week.
Qauia made its debut in the SVA club competition last month and after successive losses, the side managed to clinch its first win over Celtics Two 3-1 last Saturday.
Raketekete said the side had showed potential to become one of the giant-killers in the club competition.
"Some executives of SVA will start this program this week with Lami. They will teach basic skills and rules of volleyball," he said.
"We hope to attract attention of other players within the area and at the same time help in the development of volleyball in the country."
Raketekete also said they would host the district-based tournament on November 17, which was another way of raising the standard of the sport. In this event, players are pooled into their own districts based on their area of residence.
"This is to help prepare and train the Suva outfit for the upcoming national tournaments.
Players will be divided into the Suva, Nasinu or Lami teams based on where they reside," he said.
Raketekete said this new format would also help them prepare for the Vulaca Championship in January next year.
