CAVB to organise international referee course for women in Kenya
Cairo, Egypt, March 2, 2014 - The African Volleyball Confederation (CAVB) will organise the first International Candidate Referee course solely for female referees in Nairobi, Kenya from March 3 to 11, 2014 within the framework of the CAVB strategic plan.
There will be 18 referees taking part in the course hailing from the following 10 countries: Egypt, Uganda, Cameroon, Tunisia, Kenya, South Africa, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Burundi and Zimbabwe. The last five countries are hoping to have their first ever female referee for the sport of volleyball. The main goal of the course is to increase the number and effectiveness of female referees on the African continent.
The course will be directed by the FIVB and CAVB refereeing commission president Hassan Ahmed and the Course Instructor will be Jacek Spisak.
Africa began work four years ago on the development of female referees and have succeeded in adding more than 25 volleyball and beach volleyball referees in the last few years.
