VCP Coaches Level 1 Course completed in Haiti

Participants of the VCP Coaches Level 1 Course in Cayes, Haiti
Cayes, Haiti, November 13, 2014 - A Volleyball Cooperation Programme (VCP) Coaches Level 1 Course was held in Cayes, Haiti from November 4-11, under the supervision of Mr André Glaive from France.

The Haiti Volleyball Federation is pursuing a policy of decentralising volleyball courses in order to help develop the sport across the country. Thirty-two volleyball coaches attended the course. Most were from towns in the south of the country, including Cayes, Aquin, Petit Goave, Anses d'Hainaut, Coteaux, Cavaillon and Chardonnières. Four participants were from the capital Port-au-Prince, which is about 200km from Cayes.

The course covered topics related to player training, including coach behaviour, attacking and counter-attacking tactics, providing support to attacking players, and managing phases of play after an easy ball.

Other topics discussed included teaching volleyball to young children, the use of different learning techniques and physical training routines. Information was also provided about the Rules of the Game, the role of the International Volleyball Federation and about the history of the sport.

The course was passed by 20 of the 32 candidates.

The VCP Coaches Level 1 Course is a condensed version of the typical Coaches Course Level I offered through the FIVB Course Network. It is a course aimed at coaches and endeavours to increase their skills and knowledge on how to play and how to form teams.
