FIJI Volleyball Federation (FVF) officials were impressed with those who attended the national trials in Suva last week.

On Wednesday, 28 women attended the trials and 34 men were part of the trials on Thursday at the Vodafone Arena.

FVF official Kenneth Lidise said the main purpose of the trials was to identify talent that could be part of the national side for next year's international competitions.

"Just to select the national training squad to prepare for the upcoming Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea next year and Oceania games either this or next year," he said.

"Whilst the majority needed improvement in their skills and technique, some however stood out with their skill level and fitness.

"Some of the men's fitness level was very impressive."

Lidise said they would have another trial in the Western Division this weekend for those who missed out and those who were not able to travel to Suva for the trials.

"Next step is trials for western affiliates in Nadi on Saturday, June 14 and then based on results, the national training squad for both men and women will be selected.

"So the trials for national training squad members only will be held in Nadi at the AFL Hard Courts in Natally, Namaka.

"All who missed trials in Suva can attend and the trials and program for the development squad would be held at a later date."
