Namibia Volleyball Federation Hosts FIVB Referee’s Development Course

The Namibia Volleyball Federation (NVF) will be the host for the upcoming Federation Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) Referee’s Development Course, set to be held in the coastal town of Swakopmund from March 18 to April 1, 2024.

A total of 45 dedicated individuals have been successfully registered for the course, demonstrating a strong eagerness to enhance their knowledge and skills as volleyball referees. This strategic move underscores the NVF’s dedication to nurturing technical excellence within Namibia’s volleyball landscape.

The FIVB Referee’s Development Course in Swakopmund will be facilitated by the esteemed FIVB instructor, Mr. Waleed Abdelsamad, who is no stranger to Namibia. Having conducted a similar training session in April 2018, where 36 referees were trained, Mr. Waleed brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the course. His presence ensures participants receive comprehensive and high-quality training in officiating volleyball matches across various levels.

The program, which is being organized under the FIVB Volleyball Empowerment initiative, aims at knowledge transfer for the grassroots development of referees. It encompasses a wide range of topics, including the latest FIVB rules and regulations, match management, communication skills, and practical on-court sessions, culminating in theoretical and practical examinations. This intensive training program seeks to raise the standard of refereeing in Namibia and contribute to the overall development of volleyball in the region.

“We are thrilled to host the FIVB Referee’s Development Course in Swakopmund and are grateful for the overwhelming response from the volleyball community,” stated Hillary Dux Imbuwa, President of the Namibia Volleyball Federation. “The course presents a unique opportunity for our referees to learn from one of the best in the field, Mr. Waleed Abdelsamad. We believe that this initiative will have a positive impact on the quality of volleyball officiating in the country, ultimately benefiting the entire volleyball community.”

The federation eagerly anticipates welcoming all the candidates to Swakopmund, for volleyball enriching learning experience.
