THE Australian Volleyball Association (AVA) donated almost $800 worth of volleyballs to the Security Forces Volleyball Association (SFVA) yesterday.
Canberra-based association representative Jerry Cakau presented the donation to the assistant aecretary of the SFVA Viliame Waqavuka, who was very appreciative of the assistance from the AVA.
Waqavuka said the donation would be beneficial for the SFVA because they would be using it for training purposes in preparing for big tournaments like the Vulaca Championship.
The SFVA hosted its first volleyball tournament during the Easter Weekend, attracting 21 teams including eight women's and 13 men's teams.
SFVA was re-established on January 6 this year after a lapse of 15 years and it has helped refresh the aims of SFVA, which is to maintain a healthy relationship within the security forces personnel and promote gender equality in the sport of volleyball.
The six organisations that the SFVA comprises of are the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, Fiji Police Force, National Fire Authority, Department of Immigration, Fiji Navy, and Fiji Prisons & Correction Services. Results of the Easter Weekend Competition:
