By DAILY NEWS Reporter, 4th July 2011

THE chairman of the National Sports Council (NSC), Idd Kipingu has challenged the participants of the volleyball level one coaches’ course to ensure that they utilize the knowledge they have acquired for the development of the sport in the country.

Opening the FIVB-VSC level one coaches course, Kipingu was impressed by the participation which he said should be depicted in the development of volleyball countrywide.

“You should make sure that you tap the knowledge fully so that you can impart it to the students and help them learn the basics and skills of the game,” he said.

The nine-day course organised by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) in conjunction with the Tanzania Amateur Volleyball Association (TAVA), has been attended by 49 teachers from Mainland and Zanzibar.

Earlier, TAVA Chairman, Augustino Agapa said the course aimed at primary and secondary school teachers to ensure that they have the needed skills to teach the students and is inline with the reinstatement of the primary and secondary schools games.

“Our ultimate goal is to ensure that all zonal and regional coaches of the primary and secondary school team have the volleyball skills for the development of the sport,” said Agapa.

He said the course held at the University of Dar es Salaam grounds is being conducted by an international instructor, Benard Dennis Jesse from Seychelles with funding from the world volleyball body.

Agapa was optimistic that after the course, the teachers will be in a good position to teach the sports and hence they expect more competitive games next year.
