Coaches brush up on skills in Brazzaville

FIVB Instructor André Glaive and VCP Coaches Level 1 Course participants in Brazzaville
Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo, March 3, 2015 - Twenty-one coaches have gathered at the Congolese Volleyball Federation's headquarters in Brazzaville for a VCP Coaches Level 1 Course directed by FIVB Instructor André Glaive.

The Congolese National Federation is promoting the sport across all parts of the country and the course has been proposed to coaches from different cities, including Pointe Noire, Kinkala, Dolisie, Bouenza and Sangha.

The course began on March 4 and ends on Wednesday. It will see participants aim to acquire as much knowledge as possible about the basic techniques of the game. Participants will also be introduced to the best training techniques for young players.

The feedback from the course attendees has been very positive so far. The seminar is an opportunity for them to brush up on their practical and theoretical knowledge of the game and a chance to pick up a lot of good information, including useful tips on how to introduce six- to ten-year-olds to the sport.

Some of the participants have travelled over considerable distances to attend. It took 24 hours for one coach to travel 500km from Pointe Noire to Brazzaville and two days for another coming from Ouesso in the north of the country. Another participant travelled ten hours to cover the 300km between Dolisie and Brazzaville.
