OSHAKATI, 11 JUN (NAMPA) – The Far Northern Volleyball Association (FNVA) has donated volleyball equipment to Otjerunda Combined School (CS) and Kamanjab CS in the Kunene Region for development of the sport code at these schools.
FNVA Chairperson Mwita Sikopo handed over the equipment to representatives of the two schools at Oshakati in the Oshana Region on Thursday.
Kaunda Tukunapi from Otjerunda CS and John Negumbo from Kamanjaba CS received the equipment on behalf of their respective schools.
Accepting the donations, Tukunapi and Negumbo told journalists that the equipment will be used for training learners aged between eight and 17.
The equipment includes 14 balls for volleyball, two pumps, four whistles and two volleyball nets with a combined value of N.dollars 4 000.
Sikopo pointed out that the items are part of the volleyball equipment donated to the FNVA by the German Embassy in Namibia and the National Volleyball Federation.
“Our association is mandated by the national volleyball federation to manage volleyball in the northern regions of Oshana, Ohangwena, Omusati, Oshikoto and then the Kunene Region, hence our decision to make the schools our benchmark for the purpose of volleyball development,” Sikopo explained.
Nine men’s teams and four women’s teams are currently competing in the FNVA annual league.
