Coaches benefit from FIVB training in Afghanistan

Twenty-two coaches completed the FIVB Level 1 Coaching Course in Afghanistan
Kabul, Afghanistan, September 13, 2018 – Volleyball coaches in Afghanistan have been able to develop their skills and understanding of the sport thanks to a five-day FIVB-accredited Level 1 Coaching Course held in Kabul from September 6 to 10.

Twenty-two coaches – 16 men and six women - took part in the course which included all aspects of technical and tactical coaching. It was the first time that a coaching course has been open to women in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan hosted such a coaching course for the first time, providing a great opportunity for local coaches to participate. Costs were covered in part by the FIVB, and also by Olympic Solidarity Funding. 

The course aimed to train local coaches to help educate the players in their country in the best technique, while also helping improve and develop new coaches to spread the sport further. 

“It was a wonderful event, and the participants were very happy to continue for a few more days,” course instructor Mohammad Yousuf Sadeq said. “They were very active and took part in all the drills and practices without showing any tiredness.

“They learned a lot from this course and I would like to convey my special thanks to the FIVB and Olympic Solidarity for providing funds for this event.”

Volleyball is a popular and growing sport across the country, but suffers from a lack of resources. The FIVB continues to support the Afghanistan Volleyball Federation after providing volleyballs via the FIVB Development Projects Platform in 2017.
