A first for volleyball

TWELVE participants are taking part in the two-day Oceania Sports Education Program (OSEP) which began yesterday at FASANOC House in Suva.

The program, which allows volleyball coaches to attain a formal education on coaching, will end today.

Program co-ordinator Keni Lidise said yesterday's session was on theory and today the participants would be doing practical work at the National Netball Centre in Laucala Bay.

"At the end of the program, they will be given tasks which they need to finish and after we have assessed them individually then they would be awarded the accreditation," Lidise said.

"I think as a co-ordinator and the head of the coaches' commission of Fiji Volleyball, this program will assist us greatly.

"For most of our coaches, this is the first time they received some formal education on coaching and this will surely broaden the knowledge and understanding of these coaches and benefit Fiji volleyball in the long run."

Lidise thanked the Olympic Solidarity for funding the program through FASANOC.

Tomorrow the Fiji Volleyball Federation will hold a day-long course on the fundamentals of volleyball.

He said the course comes under the federation's coaching education program.
