ONIIPA, 16 JUN (NAMPA) – The Namibia Volleyball Federation (NVF) conducted a training course for the Far Northern Volleyball Association (FNVA) referees at Oniipa in the Oshikoto Region over the weekend.
The federation appointed Joseph Amakali (training facilitator) and Frido Nanghanda (training coordinator) as the two officials for the training course.
“The main objective of the training was about developing volleyball referees in the country, meaning the referees who receive certificates here today have been trained to be able to officiate at volleyball games,” Amakali told Nampa on Sunday.
The training course commenced on Friday and ended with the handing over of certificates to 17 course participants at Northcote Private School at the Oniipa settlement on Sunday.
Amakali said a refresher course will be conducted for his course participants in the near future.
“I want all of you who have received certificates here to be part of the refresher course,” he told the referees.
He also appealed to them to ensure that they officiate at volleyball matches, be it league games or tournaments, and to not just collect certificates for their Curricula Vitae.
“We trained you to take responsibility for our games,” Amakali stated. He went on to say the NVF has in place a very good development structure, which has been commended by the Namibia Sports Commission.
Paulus Lukas from the Eenhana Vocational Training Centre in the Ohangwena Region was the overall best trainee of the course.
