Level II Coaching Course held in Brazzaville
FIVB Instructor Mr André Glaive from France led the course. Eleven participants and ten observers took part in the programme. Participants were from different regions of the Republic of the Congo, from Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic.
Different topics were introduced, including elements of the history of volleyball, organising events, and mental and physical training. Course instructor Mr André Glaive also discussed the best ways of teaching volleyball to children - from discovering the game to training - and covered the specificities of the women's game.
FIVB Instructor André Glaive was also able to help the National Volleyball Federation identify manufacturers for the equipment needed for the 2015 African Games. The continuous presence of the head of the course, the National Federation President and the National Federation Vice-President was noticed and was a great benefit to the event, which also benefitted from coverage by local radio and television channels. Representatives of the local authorities were also present at the course's opening and closing ceremonies.
