Volleyball history

IN a historic breakthrough, Fiji Volleyball has endorsed its first ever child protection policy to be incorporated into its constitution.

It was done during its first executive meeting over the weekend in Nadi.

In a statement, Fiji Volleyball said all children and young people who engaged in sports had the right for their safety.

"This is the responsibility of every adult and organisation involved in sports and the federation is taking steps to ensure our children are safe while engaging in the sport of volleyball in the communities and schools."

Fiji volleyball president Elesi Ketedromo said sports had a very powerful and positive influence on youths and children.

"It can provide opportunities for enjoyment and achievement as well as developing valuable qualities such as self-esteem, leadership and teamwork," she said.

"These positive benefits can only take place if a sport is managed by people who place the welfare of all young people first."
