Antigua and Barbuda welcome Young Players Course
The main aim of the event was to build on local interest for volleyball and to motivate increased participation in the sport. In total, 11 boys and 27 girls attended the course and FIVB instructor Mrs Gozansky was satisfied with the high level of interest and energy demonstrated by the participants, who represent the future of the game in the island.
The promotion of volleyball in Antigua and Barbuda faces a number of challenges, including a lack of training facilities. This makes organising several training sessions simultaneously difficult. The Young Players Course, however, covered a variety of essential training drills and introduced participants to the fundamental techniques in volleyball.
