FLVB and CEV launch Pre-International Referee Course

The course will provide aspiring international referees with a unique opportunity to learn more about their role and tasks
Luxembourg, December 2, 2014 - The Luxembourg Volleyball Federation (FLVB) and CEV are happy to announce that they have joined forces for the organisation of a Pre-International Referee Course, a great and unique opportunity for future international referee candidates.

The main topics will be covered by a high-level tutor during the whole seminar in order to prepare the future generation of volleyball referees on the tasks to fulfil on their next step towards becoming a high-level international referee.

The course is a mix of theory workshops and practical activities. During 16 international matches, the course members will be able to learn from other international referees and exchange their knowledge with them.

The main wish is to help all countries with less than the referee quota to help qualify candidates of an international level.

The course starts with an e-learning module on the rules of our game. This e-learning will be supervised by the tutor. All candidates will start the e-learning process from December 15, 2014. During the e-learning process, the candidates need to work step by step through the rules of volleyball. At the end of this process an online test needs to be completed to ensure each participant reaches the required level.

The second step of this course starts on January 2, 2015 at 14:00 and will close on January 4, 2015 at 13.00 and will run in conjunction with the annual Novotel Cup organised in Luxembourg.

Seminar leaders are Fred Kröger (GER) and Jean-Claude Baccus (BEL). Both tutors have a lot of experience teaching the high level skills which are prerequisites of becoming an international referee. Both were also international referees in recent years. Fred Kröger is the Secretary of the European Refereeing Commission and Jean-Claude Baccus is a member of the FIVB Rules of the Game Commission.

Workshop conditions:

- Twin-room accommodation (breakfast, lunch & dinner) at d’Coque Development Centre from 02.-04.01.2015
