Maciu Malo
Tuesday, April 15, 2014

ONE of Australia's top referees will assist the Fiji Volleyball Federation during this weekend's Easter games.

With 16 years of experience under his belt, Phong Nguyen will be providing tips to local referees during the tournament.

Fiji federation president Elesi Ketedromo said they were fortunate to have Nguyen at the meet.

She said the Australian would assist the federation in upgrading the skills and knowledge of Fiji's volleyball referees.

Ketedromo also acknowledged government assistance though the Fiji National Sports Commission in funding their clinics around the country.

Nguyen teamed up with the Fiji Volleyball Federation to host referee clinics last weekend.

The clinic was attended by 25 participants from the Central, Eastern and Western divisions.

Nguyen has been an Australian referee since 1998, progressing through the Australian referee pathway and receiving the Bob Foot Award in 2000. He was confirmed as an International Federation Volleyball international referee in 2005 after successfully completing his International referee course in 2004.
