The Chairman of Tanzania Volleyball Association (TAVA), Augustino Agapa, yesterday told the ‘Daily News’ by phone from Tanga that the course is for players aged 18-21 years.
Agapa said players will be taught how to play the game and other technical aspects involved in the game of Volleyball. “The game of volleyball is not known country wide but I hope this course will stimulate the spirit of playing among the youths and try to spread the game in different parts of the country,” opined Agapa.
Agapa added that the course targets people who stay in and around Dar es Salaam city but next year it will be conducted in other regions. “It is hard for us to invite people from Mwanza, Arusha and other regions because it is expensive but people in Dar es Salaam will come in the morning and evening go back home,” said Agapa.
The course which is sponsored by World Volley Ball Association (FIVB) will be facilitated by Zohair Ammar from Egypt. Each year FIVB organises different courses to up lift the level of volleyball world wide. TAVA has invited Megereza, Jeshi Stars, Future, Tanga and some teams from Zanzibar.
