CAVB Coaches Commission meets in Cairo to flesh out 2013 plans
Cairo, Egypt, January 18, 2013- The African Volleyball Confederation’s Coaches Commission started its meeting in Cairo, Egypt on Friday.
CAVB nations need to increase the number and skills of coaches if they are to tap into their young players' full potential|
The commission’s main focus was on discussing ideas to improve coaching performance throughout the continent. It also touched on other important issues, including the High Performance Seminar that will hold its third edition this year after two successful outcomes in Egypt 2011 and Morocco 2012. The seminar brings the highest level coaches in Africa – especially those conducting their national teams at world competitions – together to exchange ideas and best practices. Rwanda is the leading candidate to organise this year's edition, with Egypt as a substitute.
The commission proposed organising four courses for grassroots development, two of them in English and the others in French. Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria and Ghana are candidates for the English courses, while Senegal and Algeria are ready for the French ones.
Egypt’s Sherif El Shemerly, who is also an FIVB Instructor, presided over the gathering and presented a proposal for a Coaching Aid Programme that would call for the nomination of two groups of experienced coaches to work for men’s and women’s teams across the continent.
CAVB’s Executive Director, Howyda Mondy, proposed that the confederation should centrally organise two or three courses for beach volleyball coaches in different continental regions. These would help national federations address an important need following the massive growth this kind of volleyball has been going through over the last few years.
Besides Elshemerly and Mondy, the meeting was attended by Blaise Mayam (Cameroon), Oghuma-Eghiemai Tony (Nigeria), Mostafa Ahchouche (Morocco), Bernard Denise (Seychelles), Adam Kpenoukoundehou (Benin) and CAVB Beach Director May Alaa.
