The four-day workshop, which ends today, was officially opened by the Roko Tui Dreketi, Ro Teimumu Kepa, at Nabalili, Rewa on Monday.

Ro Teimumu encouraged the participation of women in sports to promote healthy lifestyle.

The workshop was organised by the federation through its partners and was aimed at educating 54 headmen on the subject.

"The Fiji Volleyball Federation (FVF) is embarking on a program that aims to get women physically active in an effort to reduce the risk factors of non communicable diseases," a statement from the federation said.

"Fiji Volleyball acknowledges and thanks all our partners who have made this workshop possible."
