Tehran, Iran, May 23, 2014 - Thirty participants gathered at the Iranian Volleyball Federation headquarters at Azadi Stadium for a five-day setter seminar from May 6-10.

Twenty-four men and six women from clubs and regional volleyball offices across Iran attended the seminar. The participants were all coaches and volleyball instructors and brought a high level of knowledge to the course. The seminar was organised by the training and research committee of the Iran Volleyball Federation. Its goal was to provide coaches and instructors with educational tools to use in different zones of the country.

“The performance of the setter is important. Previously, we did not have such a course or seminar here in Iran. We asked the FIVB for assistance organising it. The FIVB approved and nominated Mr. Adachi as the seminar instructor. Thirty eligible persons were chosen to follow the course among the many enthusiastic candidates.

"In recent years, volleyball has progressed in our country. Training is one of the aspects we are trying to develop, so that volleyball in Iran continues to develop. Some of you as coaches and some of you as instructors should not limit yourselves to the knowledge you already have; we recommend that you benefit from different training courses and attend international tournaments, analyse the games and player performances.” said Iran Volleyball Federation General Secretary Mahmood Afshardoust at the seminar's opening ceremony.

The FIVB course instructor Tatsuya Adachi of Japan expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to help Iran volleyball under AVC and FIVB training schedules. He also acknowledged the support received from Iran Volleyball Federation President Dr. Davarzani and members of the training and research committee, who ensured all the technical requirements for the seminar were up to the FIVB standards.

“As usual, the facilities provided by the federation are of a high level and the course participants are very sharp and committed to learning and absorbing the knowledge imparted,” Adachi said.

Course participant Behrouz Ataee, head coach of Kalleh club. said: “It is a good seminar. Basic and advanced techniques are considered and reviewed. We are getting familiar with different techniques and have discussed detailed educational matters. As Mr Adachi is from Japan, he is very knowledgeable about Japanese and south Asian volleyball systems.The course instructor has covered basic skills, overhead approaches, taking steps, side steps and so on.”

The seminar was a great success and participants appreciated Mr Adachi's passion for sharing his knowledge.
