Tanzania holds course for secondary school teachers in Mwanza
About 25 teachers participated in the course.
The National Coaches Programme for Secondary School Sports Teachers, run with sponsorship from the FIVB, aims to reach a total of 600 teachers nationwide. To that end, TAVA has run courses in Manyara Arusha, Tanga, Zanzibar, Dodoma and Morogoro, as well as Mwanza.
According to TAVA president Israel Agapa, the programme was endorsed through an FIVB development plan with the expectation that, by passing the volleyball knowledge and skills learned in the course to 20 youths each, the 600 secondary school teachers will end up reaching more than 10,000 youths.
The local course instructor, Fred Selengia, is also TAVA chairman for Regional Development and Planning.
Preparations for next month’s Mwalimu Nyerere Memorial Volleyball Cup are also already in full swing. The tournament will be held in Moshi Hindu Mandal Volleyball Court, and the event is expected to excite volleyball fans across Tanzania and in nearby countries. Foreign teams that have confirmed participation include Kenya Prisons, Migudini Ladies, Mombasa Refinery and Cup holders Jacaranda.
