THE Fiji Volleyball Federation (FVF) held its first ever coaching clinic yesterday at the FASANOC House in Suva in a bid to improve the profile of the sport in the country.
The initiative is part of the Australian government Pacific Sports Partnerships program, funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade through the Australian Aid program and managed by the Australian Sports Commission.
The workshop is funded by the Pacific Volleyball Partnership program which is supported by Volleyball Australia and Oceania Zonal Volleyball Association.
The aim of the course is to build the capacity of the FVF to conduct quality sport for development programs.
Federation development officer Keni Lidise said they focused on the fundamentals of the sport.
He said 15 participants from the Central Division took part adding there were plans to organise more programs throughout the country depending on the funding.
Lidise said they hoped to improve the quality of the sport through these programs.
Earlier this week, the Oceania Sports Education Program facilitated a two-day volleyball course which ended on Thursday.
