15 attend volleyball coaching course

By Teboho Molapo

MASERU – The Lesotho Volleyball Association (LVA) is holding a Level 2 coaching course at the Bambatha Tšita Sports Arena.
The course which began yesterday and ends on August 13 is being attended by 15 local coaches and two others from Zimbabwe.
International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) instructor Samir Lotfy El Sayed of Egypt is conducting the training.
“All these people at the course have Level 1 coaching certificates which allows one to coach nationally,” LVA public relations officer Clifford Molefe told the Sunday Express yesterday.
“But as soon they receive their Level 2 certificate they will be recognised worldwide,”
Molefe said the current training is a positive step in the development of volleyball in Lesotho.
He said the standard of the sport had continued to grow in leaps and bounds over the past two years.
Local club, Redskins were crowned regional champions at the Inter-Club Zone VI Championships in Botswana last year.
“This coaching course will add to that.
“Qualified coaches contribute positively to the development of the game in the country.
“They have knowledge and are in a better position to advise the executive committee on the way forward,” Molefe said.
Meanwhile, the second round of the league season will be played at the end of the month. A-League will be played on August 27 in Leribe while the B-League will be contested the following weekend in Roma.
Leribe-based Green Spikes will go into the league phase in high spirits after beating Redskins in the final of the Lesotho Volleyball Association’s (LVA) Winter Tournament two weeks ago.
Green Spikes beat Redskins 3-1 in the final of the tournament that was played at the Lehakoe Club.
In the ladies’ competition, Bo ‘Mme also caused a bit of an upset by accounting for Redskins 2 in the final.
The Redskins men’s team are the defending league champions.
